Microfilm Scanning Services California
We provide digital conversion services for Microfilm, Microfiche, and Aperture Cards. We have been offering microfilm services in California since 1998.

Because we do not outsource microfilm scanning to outside contractors, we can provide you with a guarantee that your microfilm scanning project will have a consistently successful outcome.
Although microfilm is a reliable storage media, it does deteriorate with time. Furthermore, you would require a microfilm scanner, software, computer, and monitor to find the information you want. The whole process is slow and somewhat tedious. A better way would be to scan your microfilm into PDF, TIFF, or JPEG.
Currently, most of our customers want their scanned images in PDF since PDF is the most common digital image format. Almost anyone with a computer can access their images quickly and efficiently.
One of the significant advantages of having your microfilm scanned is that you do not have to purchase and maintain a microfilm scanner on-premises. It is a tedious and slow process to retrieve information from microfilm. You also have the storage issues of keeping microfilm in your offices, thus taking premium office space. Our work environment has drastically changed due to Covid-19. Employees are working from home, and yet they may need information.
They cannot access data from microfilm while working remotely. Having your microfilm converted into digital format and keeping it on the company server would make the information accessible to remote workers. Your organization will become more efficient and productive.
