Over 60 Years Experience

With over 60 years’ experience, Microform Imaging Limited provides one of the most comprehensive, multi-document scanning and microfilming services in the UK and its origins can be traced back to 1956, when the business was known as Micro Methods (later E.P. Microform, then Microform Limited).

The company was set up as a publishing venture to serve academic institutions in the microfilming of research materials and theses, taking on work from forward-thinking commercial and public-sector organisations that appreciated the benefits of image capture services in meeting their legal requirements to retain and manage key documentation.


/ Reviews from our Customers

Microform are one of the best companies that I have had the pleasure of working with in a long time. They work as part of the extended team, so communication isn’t an effort; it is a natural part of the process of getting the job done and delivering results.

Alison John Registration Services Manager, Warwickshire County Council

I love REG...the slick, quick and accurate re-production of any register entry is great, none of the staff at this office would go back to life without it!

Anne Atherton Superintendent Registrar, St Helens Registration Service

We have found the REG system a joy to manage and work with. Not only does it give us easy, speedy access to the certificates, we can now also offer a more professional, timely service to the public. All the staff have been impressed by how easy it is to use.

Microform Imaging have been a great company to work with, delivering excellent service and creating a unique, bespoke partnership.

Dawn Titherington Superintendent Registrar, Blackpool Council

Due to our repository being off site it was vital that we looked at alternative ways to work. Working with Microform and the REG system they had designed has transformed the way we work. No longer do staff have to leave the office to access registers on a daily/hourly basis all records are accessible instantly. Staff have welcomed the system and have full confidence in how to search, edit and print certificates. It has enabled us to offer a 2 hour turnaround certificate service for a premium fee increasing our income. Working with Microform has been a pleasure and one of most successful partnerships.

Gillian Greeson Superintendent Registrar, Wigan Council

REG has transformed the way in which we produce certificates. The process is simplified and streamlined and together with our ongoing indexing project has enabled us to achieve the efficiency targets required by the local authority.

Pat Evans Superintendent Registrar, The Register Office, Liverpool

From the first meeting we had to discuss our requirements with Mo, all the way through to now, communication in all forms have been exceptional. I very much doubt you could improve the quality of customer care and satisfaction. The relationship with Rachel throughout the project gave exceeded all my expectations, she has made the project a pleasure and stress-free experience. The level of professionalism and ''can do'' attitude she has shown from day one has been amazing and made what could have been a time of worry and concern for me, in to a feel-good working experience. Microform go the extra mile to make life easier!

Robert Harrison IT Director and Partner, HGF

I was thrilled to bits with the hard drive containing the scans of all my scrapbooks and would like to thank you very much for doing such a splendid job and for treating them with such great care.
