We often speak with companies who have archives full of microfiche, microfilm and aperture cards and want to utilise their storage space more efficiently.
Not only can these types of microform take up vast amounts of space, but they must be stored in strict climate and humidity conditions to avoid damage. Corruption from heat and light exposure could result in historical information stored in microform being lost forever.
Within our storage facility, we have created a dedicated storage area for such types of records. As part of our specialist storage service, we also store magnetic tapes, hard disks and flash drives.
As part of the service, we provide specialist account management which includes advice and guidance on the best way to store delicate documentation.
Our logistics team will arrange the collection of your archive boxes from your office location, whether you're based in the UK or internationally. Flatpack boxes & packing services can be provided.
All boxes will be booked into our goods inwards area where barcoding and weighing take place. Boxes are tracked onto Storetec's internal records management system, i-Trac.
Archive boxes are transported to their dedicated storage bay where they will likely remain until their retention period ends and secure shredding can be authorised.
On an on-going basis. your boxes in storage can be effectively managed using our cloud-based records management system, i-Trac.
We take extra precautions to ensure that delicate records such as microforms that have strict temperature restrictions are stored in the correct environment.
All operations are regularly audited, and we're accredited to a number of frameworks including ISO 27001 for Information Security and ISO 9001 for Quality Management.
