In the past, microfilm, microfiche, and aperture cards were a space-efficient way to store mass amounts of information and provided an element of improved search access. The amount of time it took to find the slide, load it into the machine, and then sort through the slide’s contents was considered normal. Technology was slower.
Today, the speed of technology and the pace of business have accelerated exponentially from what they were mere decades ago. You don’t have the time to look data up on microfilm—or the time to explain to your younger employees what it is and how to use it, never mind maintaining the equipment or locating parts to keep the machinery operational.
The Benefits of Digitizing Microfilm
With digitally stored documents, you can access your documents from anywhere, have multiple people access them at the same time, and do it all with ease.
Search with Ease
When microfilm or microfiche is digitized, its contents are scanned, interpreted, and made searchable so that it’s easy to find the information you need.
Preserve Your Data
Microfilm and similar storage devices can erode over time. You can effortlessly keep your records in pristine quality when you digitize them.
Digital documents can be duplicated and backed up on multiple hard drives or in multiple accounts. It’s easy to ensure that, even if something goes wrong, your records will survive.
Digital files can be protected by all kinds of security measures such as password protection and encryption. It’s never been easier to keep your data private.
Storing rolls upon rolls of film, boxes of cards, and the accompanying machinery takes a lot of space. When you digitize, you reduce your storage needs significantly.
