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

  • “I chose Didlake for many reasons. First, Stephen was a wonderful individual that I met at a marketing group meeting. He was very nice and friendly. Second, I was impressed with the idea that the company employees with some form of disability. While I hate to use that word, I think it is to their credit that they give individuals the ability to earn a salary and have dignity.

    I was planning to close my office for a number of reasons and work from home. I wanted to digitize certain records and have them on my computer due to the lack of file space at my home. The process was easy and successful. I highly recommend them. They also manage mailrooms for offices that are limiting their staff coming into the office.

    Stephen and the Didlake crew, thanks for the great work.”
