Case Study

The Organisation

Calibre is a diversified professional services, construction and maintenance specialist turning knowledge into value across multiple industry sectors and geographies.

The Challenge

Calibre Group wanted to digitise aperture cards with microfilm to create back-up copies to comply with company’s document security policy. The aperture cards contained large format plans, maps, engineering drawings and documents for construction projects. 

The Solution

Formfile collected the 14500 aperture cards which were group by project in card drawers and scanned. Some cards had loose images in film pockets and these were individually scanned.

The aperture cards were scanned in CCITT Group 4 TIFF, indexed and converted to searchable PDF-A. Each record was indexed with unique fields using scanning software that allows for OCR searching; enhancing efficiencies and ensuring that the back up copies complied with the companies document security policy.

 The resulting data was supplied to client on portable drives for upload to their document management system.

Anne from Calibre Consulting: We found Formfile very accommodating of our needs for the digitising of our aperture cards, the job was performed in a highly professional and timely manner. We would definitely continue using Formfile and would highly recommend them to others. We have been using the facilities provided by Formfile for over 10 years and cannot fault the service they provide.
