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

“Scanning several years of membership documents was a daunting task for our Association. We quickly developed a great partnership with Didlake Document Imaging and they relieved us of this strenuous task. Their dedication to the confidentiality and safety of our documents was their number one priority. We appreciated their attention to detail and ease of the process."
"I chose Didlake for many reasons. I was planning to close my office 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 who are limiting their staff coming into the office. Didlake crew, thanks for the great work."
"Didlake has saved United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) thousands of dollars in file storage, scanning, digitizing, and shredding! I'm very grateful to the Didlake Team for their professionalism, urgency, and commitment to exemplary customer service. Also, UCP is proud to collaborate with an organization the provides employment for people with disabilities. Bravo!"
