Microfilm and Microfiche have been a reliable alternative to hard copy file storage since the mid-1800s and have a long and storied history. Both are considered Microformats and have proven essential to efficient information management for nearly two centuries.

Many companies and government organizations have significant amounts of information stored on Microfilm rolls or fiches. Some of the challenges of storing these files are:
Shoreline helps clients to convert rolls to digital images and saved them into a Document Management Solution or into any portable media. With an increasing demand for immediate access to information, Shoreline offers clients an easy, outsourced method of converting this legacy information to any kind of format.

Information can be searched and retrieved in seconds without the need for any specialized equipment.
