File Scanning

Here at Microform we specialise in commercial file scanning, and our services have been used by a range of international businesses, healthcare organisations, and educational and legal institutions.

From microfiche through to A0 and other large format files, we have decades of file scanning experience and have a multitude of bespoke file scanning services on offer.

Benefits of file scanning

Now more than ever, businesses and other organisations are looking to improve their services, internal filing systems, security, and environmental impacts.

By converting files and documents to digital form, all four of these benefits are instantly achieved.

Whether for public, internal, or customer use, we organise and place files onto bespoke document management software that is discussed and approved by the client before integration.

From here, clients have almost instant access to any single document, during any time of the day, and this can be organised so that with the correct login details, an unlimited amount of approved users can access them.

Thanks to our quality file scanning services, businesses and institutions throughout the country are able to instantly access files and documents – helping them to improve workflow, increase office space, cut paper use, and save money.

Why choose Microform?

Here at Microform, we have over 50 years’ experience in the microform and scanning industry, making us one of the most established and trusted imaging companies in the UK.

Handling a variety of files from a great range of businesses, we handle a vast array of sensitive, private, and rare documents.

As our services are fully bespoke, this means that all of our services are tailored and focused around our clients and their documents.

Using a range of high security facilities and technologies, we prioritise the health and wellbeing of all documents within our care – converting them to highly readable, quality images.

File destruction and recycling service

Additionally, we also offer a unique destruction and recycling service for any client that does not wish to retain their original documents.

Unless the files happen to be particularly rare or noteworthy, we often find that companies prefer us to dispose of their original documents once the scanning process is complete.

This enables greater security benefits, as well as the ability to maintain the integrity and preservation of original information.

Once files have been successfully scanned, and the digital creations have been delivered to the client, we then transport the originals to our highly secure shredding, compacting and recycling facilities.
