About the Process

Conversion from paper and microfilm/microfiche to image isn't always as simple as just scanning perfect original documents. Working with an expert like IDT ensures careful consideration is given to details such as:

  • Document preparation
  • Quality control
  • Workflows
  • Minimization of manual labor resources
  • Subjective or objective coding techniques
  • Long-term storage of both microfilm originals and the corresponding images
  • Overall project management

Additionally, IDT can help organizations in the investigatory stages of this initiative take into account important factors such as:

  • Business and legal ramifications of long-term storage mediums (WORM, SAN, etc.) used to archive the image
  • Company policies and enforcement practices regarding document retention schedules of originals and the corresponding imaged version
  • Integration with e-mail, ERP, line-of-business systems or any other form of electronic information repositories
