Why Should I Convert Microfiche & Microfilm into Digital Files?
In today’s digital age, data storage for microfilm and microfiche are obsolete. If you want to update your archive with today’s latest technology, scanning film into digital files is the next step.
Despite claims that microfilm and microfiche have a shelf life of over 500 years, these media types can decay even when stored in climate-controlled environments. If you notice a vinegary smell, brittle texture, or stickiness to your media types, you need to take action to preserve your files.
Converting microfilm and microfiche to digital files can bring you valuable benefits including:
- Increased Efficiency
- More Physical Space
- OCR Searchability
- Improved Document Control
- Increased Business Continuity

Archiving your records into the cloud is a must for all companies looking to protect and preserve sensitive data. Storing scanned data from microfilm and microfiche can keep your business operating if film rolls are ever damaged.
