Today’s document/image capture and management technologies provide organizations with the ability to reduce costs, make dramatic improvements in productivity and more effectively service and support their customers. for over 40 years, western micrographics has committed to a leadership role in document management solutions, specializing in the conversion of microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards, and all paper formats into digital images.




The use of microfilm dates back to the 19th Century. These days, microfilm is still the safest & most economical method of storing records and remains the bedrock of the data imaging industry due to its longevity (there are examples of microfilm which remain perfectly usable despite being over 100 years old) coupled with its ‘technology proof’ format which is oblivious to continual changes and improvements to the operating systems and software used on modern business machines.

We convert images and data from all types of media from rare books to existing computer files. Methods range from single page processing with manual data entry to high-speed OCR/ICR, forms processing and media conversions. A growing number of clients use our conversion expertise and fax to email to integrate and deliver content into their own web sites. Our successful project management and data conversion experience is backed up by outstanding references in government and almost every paper-intensive industry.

Did you know that all permanent government records are required to have a legal archival backup? Digital files are subject to lost corruption or hacking. Hardware data bases and cloud base storage is also vulnerable. Microfilm is forever, digital is not.




Digital scanning is the answer to your paperwork storage nightmares. Western Micrographics provides document scanning, indexing, and archiving and retrieval services for a wide variety of applications. Scanning documents can be a cost effective alternative to the long-term storage of paper.

Scanned images properly indexed can also become an electronic filing cabinet accessible via a local area network, intranet or Internet. Simply send us your documents and we will send them back to you via FTP or on a CD. On site scanning has become our biggest growing service in the last two years. In simple terms, we bring our office to yours. Many companies utilize the combine benefits of microfilm and scanned images. Let Western Micro set up a custom Designed System for your company.

We have scanned on-site for some of the largest companies in USA. This service does cost more then in-house scanning, but the need for maintaining highly sensitive documents at the customers location sometimes must be done. We have been on numerous on-site projects across the US. So, if you have several thousand to a million pages, our on-site service can handle your project.




Western Micrographics offers complete technical support on all the products and services we offer. Our trained staff can handle any troubles that might pop up; from one time setup and training to extended comprehensive support contracts, we are here to help you solve any hardware or software problems that might arise and get you back on track fast.
