Film and other hard copy storage methods are becoming outdated in our increasingly digital society. If you don't want to lose the files you have stored, it would be a good idea to digitise them and Pearl Scan can help.

You can;

  • Update your storage method
  • Secure your data
  • Access information easier
  • Share your files quickly
  • Save space
  • Reduce storage costs

Scanning offers all of these opportunities and more so what are you waiting for? Future-proof your film before it's no longer possible.

Here at Pearl Scan, we can scan your microfiche, microfilm, aperture cards, photos, slides, negatives and x-rays to PDFs, TIFFs, JPEGs, DICOM and more. All you need to do is ask and we will tailor our service to suit your needs.

OCR process

Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Once we have scanned your microfiche, microfilm or aperture cards, we can apply OCR software to the scanned images. OCR recognises typed text within the image and makes it fully searchable and editable within its new digital format. Continue reading about our OCR services.

We also index all of your digital files by required fields to make them easy to find in a newly digital and organised system.

Halogen document management software

Document management software

If you don't already have a system in place to manage your digital documents and files, we can set you up with our open source document management software, Halogen. This software was designed to be sophisticated with powerful search capabilities yet easy to use with a small footprint. It will work regardless of which system you're on which is why so many of our clients are successfully managing their documents with Halogen on a daily basis.
