Our solutions are scalable and cost effective, encompassing clients with large data sets and complex file configurations, and smaller collections with limited source materials that require high quality attention.
Developing an appropriate preservation plan, plus calculating costs for digitizing, preserving and storing files depends on a number of interrelated factors:
- The type of source material
- The size of the collection
- If metadata needs to be added
- If an asset-management or content-management system is needed
- How the files will be stored
- The need to access the files once they are in storage
