Experience - Integrity - Vision

Preserving historical, legal, and accounting records for your company is a key requirement.

When you consider the possibility of losing vital information due to physical damage, deterioration, media contamination, obsolete or incompatible equipment, it seems only logical to find a way to solve these problems.  The solution is to convert your obsolete formats to current technology.

Reasons for Keeping old data

  • LEGAL MANDATES - State and Federal regulations provide severe penalties for failure to preserve certain information (ex. HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm Leach Bliley)

  • HISTORICAL RESEARCH - Business analysts need long-term information to evaluate company or industry trends.

  • ELECTRONIC EVIDENCE - Companies need to deliver historical computer data as part of their defense or in response to the discovery process. Pro-actively defending that data now can save immeasurable grief in the future.

Reasons to convert old data

  • Improve archival quality - Old media eventually degrades physically, chemically, and magnetically - even under the best conditions.

  • Reduce physical storage space - For example, you could convert roughly 7000 tapes to as few as 35 CDs! (Your actual results will vary depending on format and data.)

  • Eliminate unproductive work - Down-sizing or job-hopping programmers can lead to undocumented programs and files that are undecipherable.

  • Remove uncertainty about original formats - Every piece of media that we convert is tested to ensure that the data exists and is usable in the required format.

  • Lower maintenance costs associated with obsolete hardware - Inevitably, you’ll need to migrate to new computers, software, or media which renders older electronic records incompatible or unusable. Converting means making that data available when you need it.

  • Preserve the integrity of data - Fragile storage media can cause valuable records to "decay" on the shelf

  • Provide Substantial Cost Savings - Money can be saved in terms of employee time and effort, storage fees at vaulting companies, increased costs of purchasing or restoring obsolete data, etc.
