Update Your Office: Welcome 2018 with Microfiche Scanning

Ring in the New Year and bring your office into 2018 with microfiche scanning from Resource Data Management. Since the mid-1800’s, Microfilm and Microfiche have been a reliable way to create a hard copy file for storage and saving documents. In fact, over the centuries they have proven essential to efficient information management. But with the advances in technology in converting data from Microfilm to a more serviceable format, such as TIF or PDF images, microfiche has become obsolete. Therefore, it is essential to your business and for all companies and government organizations to invest in microfilm and microfiche conversion. RDM offers microfiche conversion for New Jersey and the entire Tri-State area of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Convert Microfilm and Microfiche to Digital

Why the need to convert old microfiche documents to PDF?

It’s almost 2018! In many instances, old rolls of microfiche are not easily accessible and cannot be shared between various people within the organization. In addition, as time passes, the equipment, known as a Microfilm or Microfiche Reader, used to search for data on these rolls is damaged or unavailable, making access to the information nearly impossible. Microfiche conversion allows your employees to not only access documents more easily, but in some cases; it allows them to access them for the first time. Many employees these days are no longer trained or able to use old, antiquated machinery and are unfamiliar with microfiche in general. This is another reason microfiche conversion is necessary.

How does microfiche conversion work?

It’s easy! RDM helps clients to convert rolls of Microfilm and Microfiche jackets to images on CD, DVD, or online. We will index the Film or Fiche with keywords or index values, to help users to quickly locate and access the data for which they are looking. As the demand for immediate, shared access to information increases, RDM offers clients an easy method of changing this information to TIF or PDF images.

The results.

In short, when you provide immediate access to information that was once stored on Microfilm or Microfiche, your organization will be better equipped to address the needs of your end-user. Information can be searched and retrieved in seconds, without needing any specialized equipment. Additionally, data is more readily availability to help with audit and compliance requirements, such as the Freedom of Information Act.

At Resource Data Management, it is our goal to help you have the most efficient and effective office possible. So, welcome 2018 and look into microfiche conversion for your New Jersey business. We serve not only New Jersey but the entire surrounding tri-state area.

X-Ray Recycling: The Process and Why It’s a Good Idea

X-rays are the most common form of medical imaging today. And, since X-ray technology is such an ever-present part of 21st century life, the waste produced by it is abundant both for companies and institutions. At Resource Data Management, we handle X-ray recycling so that our community can continue to enjoy the benefits of this type of technology safely and efficiently.RDM Inc X-Ray Recycling

Are you considering x-ray recycling? Harrisburg, Huntingdon Valley and other Pennsylvania offices can greatly benefit from these services. But why is X-ray recycling such a big deal these days, and why are so many businesses choosing this type of service? RDM has been a trusted X-ray recycling service for years now, and we’d like to take some time to answer these questions.

Many Pennsylvania area medical facilities worry about the safe, secure disposal of their x-ray materials. Whether you have a large or small amount of X-rays, they need to be recycled rather than thrown in the trash. The main component of an X-ray film is PET plastic, and it is coated with silver, a rare earth mineral and the precious metal we are all familiar with. So, throwing away an X-ray means you are putting PET plastic and silver in the trash, which ultimately goes to a landfill. X-ray recycling is the right thing to do for proper disposal.

You can’t just stockpile your X-rays forever; they eventually need to be disposed of in an environmentally conscious, compliant way. At RDM, we provide several types of X-ray recycling services, including:

  • Effluent treatment systems – Metallic exchange and drain monitor systems designed to achieve and maintain environmental compliance, along with recovering silvers.
  • Scrap film recycling – We recycle film polyester base and reclaim all the available silver. All paper and envelopes are recycled.
  • Silver recovery – Terminal systems and recirculation silver recovery with state-of-the-art equipment and unique systems to assure environmental compliance.
  • Environmental services – Consulting, compliance surveys, composite sampling.
  • Fire room services – Digital scanning, purges, relocations and tightening up files.
  • Aluminum recycling – Scrap aluminum plate removal and recycling.
  • And more!
