The Case for Information Management

Use your data to improve how you run your business

Your business, like any other, is swimming in data. Payable and receivable invoices, bank statements, employee files, the list goes on. As a business owner, you know this information is important, but how do you manage it?

Applying information management principles to your business will help ensure that business data is accessible, protected and put to good use, and that information with little or no value is safely and defensively destroyed. This will help you get the greatest value out of your data, at the lowest cost, all while meeting legal and regulatory obligations and operational needs.

  1. Grow your company through better decision making – By having greater access to your business data, you can better understand your revenue streams and make smarter decisions for your long-term business health.
  2. Boost profitability – Greater data visibility allows you to better identify your most profitable products/services as well as those that are underperforming.
  3. Lessen risk – Established information management practices ensure your business (and the data it creates) remains secure and compliant, enabling you mitigate risks and better manage your risk exposure.

The Case for Information Security

Protect your business by properly disposing of obsolete IT assets

All business data has a shelf life. From employee records to tax returns, there comes a time when data has served its purpose and needs to be destroyed.

And while traditional paper records can be shredded as a means of destruction, obsolete IT assets like hard drives and computers can't merely be erased and thrown away, as this creates numerous business risks - including the potential for data breaches, fines, and even damage to your brand reputation.

Instead, a defined secure ITAD process should be created that safely disposes this information in a way that protects your business, your customers and the environment.

  1. Ensure compliance – As the SEC has introduced numerous laws and regulations regarding the destruction of IT assets, those that are improperly disposed of expose your business to compliance risks and possible fines.
  2. Protect your brand – By securely disposing of your IT assets, you can be assured that all relevant data is properly destroyed, reducing the risk of data breaches and cyberattacks.
  3. Protect the environment – Properly disposed IT assets can often times be repurposed or recycled, effectively mitigating their environmental impact.

The Case for Physical to Digital

Ensure smooth business operations with efficient and accessible data

Think about all your business data and where it currently lives - personnel files, invoices, receipts - the list goes on. How you store and access this data directly impacts your business. For example, having multiple versions of the same document – or even slight variations – exposes your business to security risks and unreliable information. Likewise, storing data in a variety of locations makes it hard to find and not at all useful.

For today's business some level of digitization is essential to streamline workflows and processes, enabling effective collaboration among remote employees and to free up valuable office space necessary for today’s socially distant office configurations.

  1. Reduce costs – When finding and using information is easy - less time, effort, and material resources are wasted - leading to greater productivity.
  2. Decrease storage needs – Streamlined data takes less filing cabinet and digital storage space. When converting from paper-based to a digital record storage system, you can reduce and reallocate storage space – saving money associated with storing physical copies and the paper that makes them.
  3. Ensure compliance – Data organization helps you comply with rules and regulations, and enables you to efficiently gather information if audited.
  4. Improve usability – With more advanced document tracking and categorization, data becomes more valuable to your company, allowing for easier accessibility and greater use in road mapping and strategic planning.
