Benefits of Records & Information Management

Records & Information Management is the systematic process of managing information through its lifecycle. This involves managing records and information from the point of creation or receipt through to final disposition, which could be either permanent destruction or permanent archival preservation.  

Organizations that invest in developing and maintaining solid records and information management programs often achieve the following benefits:

  • Increased staff efficiency due to decreased time needed to find information, improved workflow processes
  • Increased protection of personal information and privacy
  • Decreased storage, office supply and equipment costs
  • Decreased legal and e-Discovery costs
  • Demonstrated compliance to applicable legislation and regulations
  • Prevention of pre-mature or unauthorized destruction of records
