If your business or organisation has a sizable collection of records archived on microfiche, then you may already understand their limitations. Widely used in the period before desktop computing became popular, these physical media formats were the go-to choice for storing multiple pages in miniaturised-form. Architectural offices, developers, hospitals, accountancy firms and other businesses that generated numerous paper records were heavy users of microfiche.
In our modern digital times, there are far better alternatives for organisations that need to maintain extensive records. In fact doing so can potentially save your business significant costs, improving your profitability along with your productivity. Instead of undertaking what can potentially be an onerous and time-consuming project in-house, here are a few reasons why you should engage a microfiche scanning service like Scan2Archive for the project.
