BMI Imaging’s Bi-Weekly Newsletter, “The Digital Imaging Newsletter,” Surpasses 300 Subscribers
The Digital Imaging Newsletter hits 300 subscribers by consistently providing new content about digitization, project execution, records security, and more.
Sunnyvale, California – April 19, 2023
BMI Imaging Systems, Inc. is proud to announce that its Digital Imaging Newsletter has reached and surpassed 300 subscribers.
The content in The Digital Imaging Newsletter is dedicated to education and information about digital imaging projects, services, and events. Examples include blogs about our microfilm scanning process and our internal security audit, videos about our Digital ReeL application and paper scanning projects, and information on upcoming webinars, to name a few.
Bi-weekly emails (every other Tuesday) hit the right note of not too much and overload. Will Whitney, EVP and Head of Sales & Marketing, says that “Being able to consistently provide new content to our subscribers is one of the key parts of the Digital Imaging Newsletter. We don’t want to spread it out so much that people forget about us, but we also don’t want to overwhelm our subscribers with too many emails. Every other week seems to work out just right.” He continues, “It’s a slow process to grow an email subscriber list for digitization services, but we’re impressed with the progress! One of our clients told us that they’d been a subscriber to our newsletter for over a year, and then when he had to scan his organization’s microfiche, we were the natural choice because we felt familiar and he could trust us.”
BMI Imaging Systems (originally Bay Microfilm Incorporated) incorporated in 1958 as a microfilm service bureau, working with County Recorders to archive land records on microfilm. In the early 1960s, services were expanded to include preservation microfilming of the rare books and manuscripts of leading California Universities. A Library Microfilms Division was also established, working with over 200 newspaper publishers to preserve California local history for libraries and archivists. A reputation for service, precision, and reliability led to steady expansion of BMI’s government, education, and commercial clients over the next two decades. By the early 1990’s, the records management industry had entered the digital age and BMI was at the forefront of this evolution. Clients were meeting their electronic document management needs by having BMI digitize their records, with BMI installing and supporting on-site document management software solutions.
Today, BMI’s production capability includes two imaging facilities with a staff of more than 60 technicians. With a focus on quality, accuracy, security, and innovation, BMI provides custom solutions that fit the unique requirements of each of its customers. In addition to providing document/microform imaging and indexing services of the highest standard, BMI offers public tenant, private tenant, and CJIS (Criminal Justice Information Services)-compliant community cloud hosting services, enabling secure access to client data via the Web. BMI also provides systems integration services, implementing turnkey document capture, management, and workflow solutions. BMI employs an in-house software development staff, a project management customer support staff, along with IT professionals that support internal and Web hosting operations.
