Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
Clifford Newman, president and CEO of The DRS Group, announced today that the DRS Imaging Group has boosted its Computer Output to Microfilm (COM) and added Computer Output to Laser Disk (COLD) capabilities. DRS has added capacity and experienced personnel in its secure U.S.-based facilities to preserve vital government, financial, organizational and business documents and make this information securely accessible when needed.
For more than four decades, DRS has provided micrographic COM services to help clients store essential information. COM is a proven and effective means of archiving critical documents and computer-generated information by transferring that data to microfiche or microfilm. These mediums can last for several hundred years. Moreover, since documents stored on COM cannot be changed, both microfiche and microfilm records are legally admissible in courts-of-law. And when stored in controlled, safe environments, microfilm and microfiche represent the best choices for ensuring document survival in the event of natural or man-made disasters. Plus, while technology changes over time, microfilm and microfiche are relatively obsolescence-proof since they can be read by almost any illuminating device.
The DRS Group can transfer computer-generated data onto 105mm microfiche or 16mm roll film, as well as microfiche and aperture cards. DRS has become one of the largest Document Management Services providers in the United States over its 44 years. Today, it is one of the largest COM providers in the US, with thousands of clients.
The DRS Group has expanded its COLD services as well, which is an advanced electronic report management (ERM) system that replaces "greenbar" printed reports (such as accounting reports, loan records, inventories, shipping and receiving documents, and customer bills) and supplements COM for the storage and fast retrieval of computer-generated data. Mainframe and mid-range computer-generated reports can be automatically processed, indexed, compressed, stored, and made securely available on company networks or the Internet. Multiple users can easily gain authorized access to the same report or legacy information simultaneously.
Newman states: "We are very excited about being a leading provider of both COM and COLD services. For years, companies had few choices to choose from in this arena. With our expanded capabilities and experienced talent, we can assist corporations, government agencies and organizations across the country to safely capture, archive and retrieve vital documents. Along with microfilming and electronic imaging of paper documents, we are a company that provides all aspects of managing irreplaceable information, ensuring that critical information is safely stored and available when needed."
