Do you have an outdated or broken microfilm reader? Do you think it’s too expensive to scan your records and convert them into digital images? You’re not alone.

When we work with clients who use hardware to view their film, they’re often facing a problem – the machine is broken or just doesn’t work anymore and they don’t have access to their records.

Digitally scanning microfilm and microfiche used to be a lot more expensive than it is today, but those old ghosts haunt some folks who asked about scanning their film years ago. If you’re one of these people, we suggest you give it another shot and get away from hardware!
