Here at Microform we are proud to have serviced a whole range of organisations within the public sector, including the likes of schools, universities, colleges, museums, and libraries.
Whether books, magazines, newspapers, files, surveys, essays, exam papers, or microfiche or microfilm files, we work hard to ensure the safety and integrity of every item within our care.
Confidential to the fullest degree, up to 80 per cent of our work involves private or sensitive files and all our staff sign off a strict confidentiality agreement before beginning work.
How can the public sector benefit from document scanning?
We know that every school and university has to cope with large and ever expanding filing systems, costing them both time and money.
In an age where every penny counts, document scanning makes sense on a number of levels.
As well as freeing up large amounts of physical space, the document scanning process can also shave thousands of hours off file retrieval times every year.
What’s more important, is that documents can be preserved in a higher level of security.
Aside from the fact that paper and other materials can succumb to the elements in the cases of fire and water — as well as every day wear and tear — keeping digital copies of files in cloud systems ensures the security of every single scan.
This is instrumental for rare, historical, and fragile documents, books, or files.
The Microform process
Once that we have received an inquiry from a potential client, we send along a Microform representative to discuss the aims and requirements of the client to ensure that the scanning process is 100% beneficial.
Now that the project is agreed, we then pick up the files in a Microform van, which can be tracked throughout the delivery process.
When the files arrive at our facility, every single item is marked on an inventory and ordered accordingly to ensure full efficiency.
Once scanned in our high-quality scanners, each then undergoes a quality check while the whole project is again marked up to ensure nothing is missed.
We then convert the scans to the agreed file format of the client.
These can be then delivered in the form of:
- USB drives
- Cloud Software
