With the advances in technology, such as TIF or PDF images, microfiche and microfilm have become obsolete. Therefore, it is essential to your business and for all companies and government organizations to invest in microfiche and microfilm conversion. In many instances, old rolls of microfilm are no longer easily accessible and cannot be shared 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 becomes damaged or unavailable. This makes accessing information on microfilm nearly impossible. Microfilm 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.

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.
Microfilm records also take up a lot of space, whereas digital files do not need separate storage space. Consequently, you can discover more office space that was previously storage for microfilm.

And, it’s actually much easier than you might think! 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.
