Microfilm: Snapshot of a Document Management Lifesaver
In an age of information inundation, one can find that library catalogues, back issues of company brochures, receipts, administrative files, and even blueprints clutter work and office space. Major academic institutions and cutting edge corporations are finding that they possess valuable documents and priceless records, yet face increasing problems with storage space.
Imagine the hundreds of blueprints an engineering firm might retain! Consider the over-flowing amount of periodicals of weekly papers that daunt public libraries or other similar locales! Although the scope of these industries varies, they share the same pivotal need for efficient CMS (Content Management Systems).
While it might be highly important to keep a blueprint for an antiquated aluminum casting on file in case patent concerns arise in the engineering world, is it necessary to keep sets of potentially useful documents in a disorganized office closet? Management and administration would wholeheartedly agree that space poses the most immediate threat to maintaining appropriate documentation. Piles of paper are very unsightly.
