files require storage space, and lots of it. A four-drawer file cabinet
(about 10,000 pages) fits on a single CD.
Further, a DVD can hold approximately 70,000 pages which is equivalent
to 7 CDs OR 7 four-drawer file cabinets. MicroImage can even digitize
your documents onto the new DVD+DL medium. A DVD+DL can hold approximately
15 CDs worth of documents. In simplistic terms, a storage room containing
15 four-drawer cabinets can now be contained on a single DVD+DL.
Retrieving a paper file requires footsteps and thumbing through files
you don't need. Digital files are literally at you fingertips, with
searches conducted and files retrieved all at your computer.
Paper files are stored in one place. The possibilities are almost unlimited
with digital files. They can be stored on a CD or loaded on a personal
computer. They can be e-mailed. Digital files can be shared with users
in your office complex on a Local Area Network, or around the world
on a Wide Area Network.
Paper deteriorates with age. We back-up all of your digital files so
they last indefinitely and never age.
This happens with paper files. Digital files can never be misfiled or
lost with a properly designed index.
Recently www.ClickonDetroit.com (6/21/05) reported a five alarm fire
raging in a downtown Detroit community known as the New Center Area.
According to this article, the five alarm fire was adjacent to a building
that "contains millions of medical records that are stored in the
building for Henry Ford Health Systems." Thankfully, according
to www.ClickOnDetroit, "no health records were damaged in the fire."
