Pension and Policy Document Storage and Retrieval in Microfiche Format

Traditionally, organisations, including pension management firms, relied heavily on microfiche and microfilm formats for storing records. This method, once considered cutting-edge, allowed for the compact archiving of vast amounts of information on film, offering a space-saving solution compared to paper files. However, this traditional approach to document storage has become outdated and carries significant drawbacks. Not only is it expensive due to the specialised equipment required for both viewing and maintaining the records, but it also falls short of modern standards for data protection, such as those mandated by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and record-keeping. The physical nature of microfiche and microfilm makes them susceptible to a range of risks, including loss, misfiling, and damage from environmental factors like fire. Moreover, these formats do not offer the robust backup options available with digital storage solutions, making it challenging to safeguard against data loss and ensuring data security is more complicated.


Digitise Microfiche Archives for Enhanced Security and Efficiency

In the era of digital transformation, pension management organisations are recognising the imperative need to move away from traditional microfiche and microfilm storage methods. Historically, these formats were the cornerstone of document storage, offering a compact way to preserve vast amounts of data. However, in today’s digital age, such methods are not only outdated but also pose significant challenges in terms of cost, compliance with GDPR, data security, and the inherent risks of physical damage, including loss, misfiling, and fire hazards. By scanning and converting pension records from microfiche to digital formats, organisations can revolutionise their document management systems. This transition not only enhances data protection and retrieval processes but also safeguards critical business documents against the vulnerabilities of physical storage.
