  • Improved Accessibility and Efficiency

  • Enhanced Record Accuracy

  • Remote Access

  • Efficient Record Retrieval

  • Ease of Data Sharing

Microform is proud to help service the educational industry, as we understand the importance of making sure our children get the best education possible.Educational institutions can digitise student records, transcripts, and administrative documents to simplify record keeping and improve accessibility to academic information.

Digitise to Improve Accessibility

Educational establishments can greatly improve accessibility for students by digitising documents.

Digital formats allow students to access course materials, assignments, and resources anytime and anywhere, breaking down barriers associated with physical copies. Documents can be easily shared through online platforms, ensuring all students have equal access to the latest information and updates.

Additionally, digital documents can be adapted for various accessibility needs, such as screen readers for visually impaired students or translation tools for non-native speakers.

This inclusivity fosters a fairer learning environment, enabling all students to participate fully and effectively in their education.

/ Benefits of Digitising Educational Student Records

Improved Accessibility and Efficiency

Digital student records can be accessed quickly and efficiently by authorised personnel, such as teachers, administrators, and students. This streamlines various educational processes, from enrollment to grading and record management.

Enhanced Record Accuracy

Manual record-keeping can lead to errors, such as transcription mistakes or misplaced documents. Digitising records reduces the risk of inaccuracies and ensures that data is consistently formatted.

Remote Access

Educational staff and students can access digital records remotely, which is especially valuable for distance learning, online education, and for students who may need to access records while away from campus.

Efficient Record Retrieval

Searching for specific student information is much faster with digital records. Teachers can quickly access attendance records, academic transcripts, and other relevant data to make informed decisions about a student's progress.

Ease of Data Sharing

Digital records can be easily shared among educational institutions, making it simpler for students transferring between schools or pursuing higher education. This can expedite enrollment and credit transfer processes.

/ 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.
