Not having a handle on your business information is scary stuff—it damages your bottom line, stifles productivity, and can ruin customers’ confidence in your organization. As 2017 approaches, beware of these information management nightmares.
Losing an important file is a nightmare, especially when it stalls your workflow. Unfortunately, searching for missing information is often the rule rather than the exception in a busy office. Most organizations simply do not have the systems and resources to manage files properly in-house.
When you store your documents in a records center, you never have to worry about files being misplaced, only to never be found again. Your information is indexed, barcoded and managed within an advanced software application. At any time, you can view your inventory online and initiate requests for:
- File pickup, retrieval and delivery
- Customized inventory reporting
- Final disposition of documents
Professional file systems and controls ensure you have seamless access to your files all the time.
Stolen documents and data can cause a ripple effect of financial and legal consequences for your business. That’s why it is important to have a secure information disposal solution. Partner with a NAID AAA Certified shredding and destruction partner to make sure your sensitive paper and non-paper information is disposed securely and in compliance with privacy protection laws. Your documents are destroyed onsite, at your facility with an unbroken chain of custody.
Sudden data loss can permanently paralyze your business. Data protection begins with regular data backup and continues with a media rotation and vaulting strategy. With a tape rotation service, your most recent backup media is picked up from your office and transported to a secure, fireproof, climate-controlled vault. Your backups are protected with the following technology:
- Heat resistant panels
- Self-contained climate-controls with monitoring
- Class 125, 4-hour rated fire protection
- Waterless fire suppression
- Controlled and monitored access
Each tape is barcoded and scanned for real-time tracking. If your business loses data unexpectedly, the correct media is retrieved and delivered to your office or hot site so you can begin the recovery process immediately.
