Image processing is needed by many clients to convert paper-based documents, drawings or records on paper or film to digital or electronic data. These electronic records are easier to search and retrieve, can be viewed by more than one person at a time, and there is the added benefit of protecting the original copy from everyday use.
Metrofile’s range of image processing services include:
Document Scanning: On-site or off-site bulk scanning, or specialised scanning for projects of any size.
Archive Writing: A service used to produce a microfilm version of digital information for long-term preservation and safe storage.
Digitising: A service used to convert records stored as micro images into digital format.
