About BMI Imaging

BMI Imaging Systems was incorporated in the State of California in 1958 and is headquartered in the City of Sunnyvale. BMI began as a microfilm service bureau, working with county government agencies on the microfilming of land records. In the early ‘60s, BMI expanded its archiving services to include the preservation microfilming of the rare books, manuscripts and the newspapers of some of California’s leading universities. A Library Microfilms Division was also established and worked with over 200 newspapers in preserving California local history for libraries and publishers.

Today, BMI’s production staff creates and indexes an average of 3 million digital images per month and serves a customer base of over 800 organizations, many of whom have been clients for over 20 years. This customer loyalty stems from BMI’s steadfast commitment to providing consistent, high-quality and customized service.

BMI has developed a wealth of experience in several vertical markets (e.g. healthcare, government, education) and offers customized document management solutions in a competitive and changing marketplace. Scanning paper documents or physical microfilm is usually the most visible task in achieving a full document solution.

Identifying record types, determining indexing methods and leveraging content in existing legacy systems are all skills needed to modernize an agency’s document management systems and processes. BMI’s systems integration team has decades of experience to achieve this goal. Internally developed software tools, over 400 to date, are regularly employed to solve complex image and data challenges. Jobs that require analysis, data extraction, multiple service offerings and custom development are those that separate BMI from other providers.
