VANCOUVER, BC—(Marketwired – March 16, 2018) – Digitization and scanning seem like a relatively straightforward process. But according to a newly published blog, sometimes digitizing old documents can be laced with challenges and surprises. For more go to: http://www.microcomsys.com/blog/
As a fully–scalable scanning and digitization centre in Vancouver, Micro Com Systems is often called on to do jobs for government organizations and libraries, as well as private companies. As long–term employees Kathy Di Tomaso and Shelley Vogt can attest, consistently delivering high–quality results takes a little extra effort — and considerable expertise.
Often clients have procrastinated on important digitization projects a little longer than advisable. As a result, team members have to be prepared to negotiate a number of challenges when sorting through thousands of boxes that have, on occasion, contained documents dating as far back as the 1800s — as well as other surprises.
Of course, dust is a regular occurrence. But occasionally there are documents that have been exposed to fire and flooding. This might mean removing burned bits of paper or separating documents that are gummed together with mould and mildew. There's even been the occasional post–mortem mouse found, which one can only hope expired peacefully after a long and fulfilling life nibbling on select documents.
Sometimes important documents are on the brink of disintegration, and it's up to the team at Micro Com to capture the important information that's contained before it's lost forever.
Today, most team members are prepared for anything. And they have access to protective gloves and lab coats when it comes to negotiating the occasion biohazard. Because whatever the job, every single sheet of paper must be separated, smoothed, and prepared for scanning.
There have even been jobs that require handling rare and valuable books and scrolls printed on exotic materials like cotton, onion skin, and linen, which requires special equipment and management to preserve their integrity.
The point is, whatever's brought into the office, reliable team members like Kathy and Shelley have been there and done that. Document digitization allows business owners and managers to free up valuable real estate by disposing of a surplus of storage boxes — without ever worrying about the surprises that lay within.
