Whatever your objective to digitize microfilm; whether to accelerate response processing times, preserve valuable data, or to enhance ease of accessibility, proper strategic planning is vital to ensuring the timely success and completion of your microfilm to digital conversion project. There are many details that need to be ironed out, but the benefits are quite significant for organizations that transition successfully. Join nextScan, the microfilm conversion experts, as we walk you through the steps of planning an in-house microfilm to digital conversion project from beginning to end. Discover best practices that can be implemented in your scanning operation so you can ensure the successful transition of your microfilm assets to digital formats.
