If you were raised in the digital era, then you may take the convenience and storage capacity of computers and hard drives for granted. If you came of age before the rise of computers and cloud storage, however, then you remember the challenges of storing and archiving documents without having to devote a large percentage of your space to filing cabinets. For a long time, the standard way to archive newspapers or other documents was with microfilm–miniaturized images of those documents stored on cassette-like film. If your business still has filing cabinets full of the stuff, we at Paperless Digital Solutions can help you bring your archives into the modern era with our microfilm/microfiche conversion services.
Our team at Paperless Digital Solutions specializes in providing various scanning services to help people digitize their important documents and free up the physical space they were occupying. In our microfilm/microfiche conversion services, we first scan the film to convert each page into a raw digital file. Next, the images are converted to your desired format, such as JPEGs or PDFs. After that, we use optical character recognition software to “read” each image and create a corresponding, searchable text file. With a digitized database, you’ll be able to look up anything in your old documents with a few clicks, rather than the tedious process of setting up the film and reading through it page by page.
We at Paperless Digital Solutions hope that this article gets you excited about the possibilities that await you with our microfilm/microfiche conversion services. If you are ready to digitize your old microfilm files and get rid of those storage cabinets, just give us a call.
