Business Challenge

Establishing how long to retain various records requires the development and implementation of a credible retention policy. However, maintaining a retention schedule through traditional methods is labor-intensive and expensive.

As the volume of retained business records continues to grow, so do the associated costs and risks of not having a retention schedule. The more information your business retains, the greater the burden of identifying and locating records when you need them for reference purposes and legal compliance. It’s a challenge to ensure your organisation is compliant when staying up-to-date on the ever-changing rules and regulations can be a full-time job. With limited resources, it’s a struggle to create a culture of compliance within your organisation.

How This Affects You

  • You’re keeping records longer than required for legal, regulatory, or business reasons
  • You have inconsistent regulatory citation and change tracking which impacts legal defensibility
  • You find it difficult to stay up-to-date on the latest records keeping rules and regulations for your industry
  • You want to build, curate, and update a legally defensible, global retention schedule, but have limited resources

What If You Could…?

  • Purchase and maintain a prebuilt records retention schedule that reflects your business operations, without a large, upfront project fee
  • Grow beyond manual, timeintensive processes to research, update, and communicate changes to policies
  • Keep your Record and Information Management (RIM) programme’s retention guidelines current and compliant with annual regulatory updates backed by high quality legal research
  • Confidently destroy information and store only what you need, so you can easily and quickly find what you need, when you need it
  • Manage risk by empowering employees to understand what is required of them from a regulatory compliance and organisational perspective
