Reselling microfiche scanning services is an excellent way for your company, organization, or you to have access to a stream of revenue without investing in equipment, labor, office space, training, or liabilities. For example, let us say you work for a litigation company and one of your clients- in addition to needing documents converted to PDF- also has a collection of microfiche containing payroll records. Let us also assume that the set of fiche contains 1,000 cards.
It doesn’t make sense to perform the microfiche scanning on your own for the following reasons:
- Cost. Why buy a new microfiche scanner for $65,000 to digitize something worth around $4,000?
- Inferior scanners. There are scanners that are cheap (like $10,000) but what type of quality would you expect from low level camera technology?
- Labor, training, workflow. Do you really want to incur money up front costs to expand your company just to handle 1000 COM fiche?
Anyway, after you spend some time investigating all of these options and have meetings about the feasibility of your company doing the microfiche scanning, you will realize that it is more efficient to outsource the microfiche scanning.
Since Generation Imaging is a wholesale service bureau you will get a below market conversion price, which will give you room to add on to the price to your end client, i.e. reselling the microfiche scanning service. After all you are the one responsible for taking care of your end client, you are taking the risk, and you will be the one servicing the end client.
Generation Imaging can be your silent partner for reselling microfiche scanning services, or if you totally don’t want to get involved you could simply have us go direct and we’ll give you a commission- it’s your choice. CONTACT US
