Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 5, 2006
Today Record Nations announced the launch of its Microfilm and Microfiche conversion service. The service converts documents stored on microfilm and microfiche to digital images. The images of the documents are viewable with any computer and are stored on CDs or computer servers. The images can also be processed with optical character recognition software to create files that can be edited.
"Microfiche/Microfilm scanning is a perfect compliment to our existing paper scanning services," said Wendy Fauth, Product Manager for Record Nations. "After our customers see how easy it is to access their records after a paper conversion project they want to have the same access to the information stored on microfilm."
For many years microfilm was the storage method of choice for governments and large businesses including banks and insurance companies for its compact size. However, digital images have the advantages of size along with the benefit of easy retrieval for local and remote users. Many governments have also looked to digitization to help them meet the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act.
The problem for many organizations is the high cost of the digitizing equipment and the training required to operate it. Services like Record Nations reduce the cost of the conversion project. "Why buy a machine and train your employees when we can do the work more efficiently and save the organization money," says Fauth.
