  1. Micro Com Systems a Diverse Work Force Leads to Rich Corporate Culture at Vancouver Scanning and Records Management Company

    Leave a Comment

    It’s no secret that the strength of any business is its people. And service bureaus are no different. As a Vancouver-based company that specializes in document scanning and digitization services, many of the tasks are simple and repetitive. They range from pulling staples to preparing documents for scanning. And the people who fulfil these positions include students, retirees, and many new immigrants to Canada. In fact, the array of culture, diversity, and knowledge have added considerably to the skills and corporate culture of the company.


    In over 40 years of business, Micro Com Systems (MCS) has employed people from all around the globe. Many of these employees possessed high level education from their home countries, but needed to upgrade their skills and training in order to be recognized in Canada.


    Working at Micro Com helped bridge this gap while they attained the education and certifications necessary to practice in Canada. Here are a few of the standouts over the years:


    Fillip – Full ride scholarship in Political Science, Macedonia

    Veena – Master’s Degree in Economics, India

    Maria – Master’s Degree in Physics (was a nuclear scientist in Romania)

    Ferdinand – Philippines, had a CGA but liked the low-stress social environment of MCS better

    Alan S – Author, Business Executive in India. Ran for an MLA position locally.

    Steven B – Marketing degree, Ireland

    Bradley S – Dental Student, Australia

    Diana – Professor, Bulgaria


    Since 1975, well over 1100 people have been employed at MCS. In fact, there have been over 600 employees in the last dozen years alone. And from 2004 to 2006, nearly 180 were brought onboard for a particularly busy stint.


    Today, about 50 people make up the core team at Micro Com’s Burnaby facility. Many are long-term employees who have been with the company for ages (up to 40 years in some cases). However, it is the interplay of old and new, the unique combination of age, experience, and ideas that have truly enriched the business and culture.


    People bring a little part of themselves into the places they work. And these new ideas, skills, and the vast wells of knowledge are what has given Micro Com an edge when it comes to creative problem-solving and work fulfilment. All enterprises are defined by their team member, and people remain the number one reason that Micro Com is still a rich place to work and do business.

  2. Vancouver’s Document Scanning Expert, Shelley! by guest blogger Jay Phoenix

    Leave a Comment The inevitable daily commute: a monotonous necessity. Vancouver has their very own congestions issues of gridlocked highways, crowded routes, and confusing one-way streets that shames Coruscant’s diverse population. One single troubled driver causes a ripple in traffic that affects several kilometers of traffic on the highway, and affordable living in the city is becoming a dream. Every year, more families and young couples are pushed out into the boonies.
    Before the crack of dawn, at an hour that should be banned from existence, Micro Com’s public transit commuting veteran Shelley Vogt catches the West Coast Express on her daily commute from the Shire. Half-conscious and cranky, tales of the commuter train are as Groundhog Day as they come, and she has cars full. Everyday, the same people, the same seats, and the same friends – no Sonny and Cher.
    Still groggy? Try the quiet car. Just don’t make a peep or you’re liable to find a fist in your face. It’s an unspoken rule that daily commuters live by that one car is designated the ‘quiet’ car. Occasionally a loud-mouth construction workers with hangover cringing voices find their way on and are silenced with a chorus of ‘SHHHHH!’ And Shelley vehemently swears, that in that not quite lucid state of mind, discovering a stranger in the seat that carries your butt imprint completely throws off your day and leaves you a little dazed and confused.  

    Vancouver’s Document Scanning Expert with 23 Years Experience

    2014-07-29 10.05.40

    Head of Digital Imaging for Microfilm, Scanning, & Every Imaging Department

    At the end of her epic journey through Middle Earth, Shelly runs the production floor and sends her minions scurrying as the Imaging Supervisor. It would make The Overlord proud. With a whopping 23 years experience from every department – microfilm, processing, and scanning, just to name a few – on all shifts, including the loathed graveyard shift, it’s no wonder Micro Com boosted her from the ranks to take command of her own platoon.  

    Cracking Her Whip

    When Shelley’s not riding the rails and cracking her whip, she’s studying to become the next Dr Eleanor Abernathy MD JD with her adorable Bengal cat Benson and Seena, her faithful German Shepherd. Hopefully, when she reaches year 25, Micro Com will award her a plaque in honour of her years of dedication and service as she continues to ride the rails to success.
