  • 1. ARCHIVE WRITING:The Gold Standard for Document Preservation
  • 2. AGENDA CONTENTS ARCHIVE WRITING:With over 40 years of experience, MES Hybrid Document The Gold Standard for Document PreservationSystems provides organizations large and small withsolutions to manage their documents, efficiently andautomate daily processes by going paperless. Theseinitiatives help to improve customer service as well asassist with disaster recovery and corporate complianceprograms. In short, we provide Peace Of Mind, NotPieces Of Paper.
  • 3. 3 ARCHIVE WRITING• Archive Writing puts your digital images onto microfilm.• In more technical terms, it produces a technology-independent analogue back-up of your digital records. But why would you want an analogue copy when the world has gone digital?• Archive writing to microfilm preserves your documents and avoids technology obsolescence.• You can also eliminate storage costs for paper documents. Plus, it takes about 95% less space to store microfilm than it does paper. 3
  • 4. 4 ARCHIVE WRITING• Archive writing provides an excellent solution for disaster recovery.• Unlike paper or digital records, microfilm can survive a flood or hurricane, and retain your information for longer than any other format available –hundreds of years.• Archive writing also creates an admissible document format for legal proceedings.• With enhanced security of your information, your organization is also better positioned to comply with new government regulations. 4
  • 5. 5 ARCHIVE WRITING Preservation is Key! • Living  in  a  digital  world  means  information  can  flow  around  the  globe  in  seconds.  • Speed and ease have caused us the massive migration to digital information.   And  because  we’re  always  looking  for  faster  and  better, technology upgrades  guarantee records will become inaccessible in very short order.  • All  of  the  advancements  that  we’ve  enjoyed  in  digital  hardware  and  software  over the years have come at the expense of preservation.  • Critical information that must be accessed over the course of time can’t rely on  digital  formats.    Instead,  it  must  use  archive  writing  to  ensure  ongoing  availability well into the future.   5
  • 6. 6 ARCHIVE WRITING• Any valuable, historical document must be preserved through archive writing. • If you record these critical documents solely on digital formats, you will  eventually become obsolete.  You will lose them within a short period of time.• Just think about the short life span of digital media.  • In the last 20 years, digital data has been preserved on a variety of media:   floppy disks in 8”, 5.25 and 3.5” formats; tape cassettes; zip drives; CDs, DVDs,  Flash drives and more.   • For this reason and many others, archive writing makes better sense for  preserving documents well into the future.  • Transferring documents to microfilm avoids the issues with obsolete mediums  and proprietary technologies that would render access difficult and costly, if not  impossible.  6
  • 7. 7 ARCHIVE WRITING• Digital conversions also require constant maintenance.• As technologies evolve, you’ll need to regularly migrate to the latest hardware and software versions to ensure access of your critical documents, and there is also no way to predict how often or costly these migrations will be.• Archive writing allows your organization to have the best of both worlds.• You get all the benefits of the digital age with the security of an analogue format.• If a digital file is accidentally deleted or subjected to a virus, you have the peace of mind knowing you can retrieve your microfilm image.• With digital and analogue formats, your critical files remain safe, complete and easily accessible. 7
