For years, microfiche technology has allowed organizations like yours to easily store its data in high volumes without taking up the same amount of space as a full sheet of paper.

Saving Government Dollars in Turn Saves Our Dollars

Let’s pretend and step into the shoes of one of our clients. You work in a large division of the Ontario Government and you need to make prints from microfilm. The only piece of equipment you have is a very old, very worn out, microfilm reader printer. Why not just have the machine fixed you ask? That would be a good idea, have our skilled technicians out to service the microfilm reader printer bring it back up to working condition. We could, but unfortunately toner for this machine is no longer available. The only option you are authorized to pursue, is taking the film to a different location to make the prints and not without a charge. $0.25/print and on average a file size of 400+ pages this adds up quickly. Not to mention the security threat of leaving the roll of film or prints left behind.

This is where MES Hybrid Document Systems stepped in. Working together we were able to determine the MES ViewScan would be the best replacement microfilm scanner for the client. With its new technology the ViewScan is a compact, fully intergraded roll film and microfiche viewer/scanner that digitally captures images and instantly projects them on a PC Monitor. Now up and running the client is able to produce prints or even email the images to all the required parties, without ever having the worry of the film leaving the office.
