20 year old document scanning company in Chicago area

We protect your most important asset - your information

We all regularly backup information that is in our computers. We should also backup paper files containing mission critical information like personnel records, medical charts for electronic medical records, accounting records, financial records, brochures, R&D or technical records, training manuals, legal documents, religious records, engineering / maintenance records, OSHA records, etc.


Archive / Backup all your important business information on USB flash drives for the following reasons :

Safety - By scanning your documents you can keep one set of USB flash drives off-site to facilitate quick disaster recovery from theft, terrorism, fire or flood.

Be HIPAA compliant by scanning your documents and hence protecting personal information in your care against theft, loss or accidental damage.

Saving in Space - One USB flash drive holds 100 to 150 document storage boxes, hence by scanning your documents you can free up physical storage space.

Efficiency - Scanning your documents offers a huge savings in time, money and effort in retrieving and sharing information - You can access your scanned information on USB drives  from any PC within seconds. You can then print or share the same via fax or email. You can improve customer service by having critical information scanned in digital format on the computer rather than in boxes or filing cabinets.

Economical - Document scanning pays for itself in 2 to 3 years and can save you around $ 350 per box over full 10 year storage life.

Our mission is to provide our customers with value added solutions of unsurpassed quality for goodwill and profit.

Our objective is to work with our customers in defining and implementing an optimum solution that will enable them to efficiently archive, search, retrieve and utilize all the information they have.

          Barbara - Medical Practice Manager, Kankakee, IL

We have used Microfilm Enterprises on three occasions to scan office records and place them on DVDs. Microfilm Enterprises has always picked up the records when they said they would, they have completed the projects when they said they would, and they have been very accurate in the scanning of our records. I would highly recommend Microfilm Enterprises for scanning projects and plan on using them again when the need arises in our business.

As per HIPAA regulations "Security" of medical / personnel records is the ability of a company to control access and to protect private health & personal information from accidental or intentional disclosure, alteration, destruction or loss. It is a lot easier for a company to control access and protect medical / personnel records on USB flash drives.

Time, effort and cost of retrieval of  information on USB flash drives is close to zero as against having to go through boxes and boxes of files in a storage room to find a particular file. You do not have to pay anyone to store or get your own file out of storage.

By putting information on USB drive, a business can eliminate photocopying cost. Either the full file or selected pages from it can be printed, emailed, faxed and hence shared with no extra effort hence increasing productivity, improving customer service and eliminating paper cost.
