What are the benefits of going digital?

There are many benefits to going digital.

First, unlike microfiche digital records do not age and become brittle over time. Everything from paper to microfiche is affected by the passing of time. It becomes dry, brittle, yellow, fades, etc. It becomes hard to read and handle.  Digital on the other hand you do not have to worry that it will fall apart when you look at it because you do not touch it physically.

Second, digital takes up less room to store. Your digital records can be stored on the cloud and also on a thumb drive as a backup. That means you can utilize the space you have been using for file cabinets or other items for storage. You can turn it into space for a waiting area, restroom, add desks for more workers, etc.

Third, you no longer have to worry about fire as much. The old dried microfiche film will not add fuel if a fire happens. You also won’t lose those valuable records as they will be stored on the cloud.
