Document Microfilming Service
The most benefit to microfilming your documents, saving space, is secondary to the most important feature, which is document integrity and information security. This is the reason that important public records such as Deed Registries and Probate Court records are accessed in microfilmed form. Several duplicates of microfilmed documents can be made available, while the original documentation may be kept in archival storage or may, in fact, be destroyed.
Raycom Data Technologies offers full service microfilming capability for all sizes of documents from cards and checks to architectural renderings and engineers’ schematics up to 42″x60″.
We carefully examine every document before filming; removing all staples and paper clips to assure that every page is separate and easily visible. Similarly, after the exposed film has been developed we view every frame not once, but twice, to ensure that all documents are clearly legible and in full view. Our document preparation and film checking techniques are outstanding in the industry. We believe in doing the job right, the first time. Greater care and effort up front saves our clients trouble in the end, and wins us the kind of appreciation and loyalty we strive to cultivate.
Because our years of experience, we have developed an efficiency and expertise that can benefit you. We combine excellent turnaround time with free pickup and disposal of documents after filming, to make the client’s part of the process easier. If requested, we can transfer original documents to our storage facility for archival keeping. Due to our speed and accuracy, we actually do jobs at lower cost than in-house microfilming departments.
