Business Challenge

You may have elements of a formal Records and Information Management(RIM) program in pockets across your company, but still you’re struggling with consistency and enforcement across the U.S. or even worldwide. You’re not confident in your ability to face regulatory or legal scrutiny because RIM is an after thought in much of your organization. And when you lack a comprehensive program that addresses both your physical and electronic records,complying with the regulations that govern you is impossible.

The biggest challenge you’re facing may not be policy or process, but people.

You need to connect people to the right behaviors and infuse RIM into the DNA of your operations.

How This Affects You

  • Your organization is at risk if you lack a defensible records management program.
  • You need help consistently enforcing compliance company-wide.
  • You want to secure resources and funding needed to drive broader adoption of RIM.
