Inside TDV - The Data Vault Blog
With the official first day of spring arriving this past weekend (though in some areas of the country it certainly didn’t feel like it!) many people are turning their minds towards some much needed clean up and organization of their offices. There’s no better time to get a fresh start on your records management program, and with some quick updates your organization can be running more efficiently than before.
An important first step towards this goal is determining what you actually need to keep around. Many companies unknowingly end up with duplicate or redundant paperwork in storage, putting them at risk for future liabilities. While the prospect of a full scale audit can seem daunting, using your records retention schedule to determine what documents are disposable (and therefore ready for destruction) can cut down on both clutter and costs. Even if the information takes the form of magnetic tapes or hard drives, it can be wise to either go through and examine the data contained within or consider having them shredded for the sake of tying up loose ends.
If you see a need for your organization to engage in some of this kind of cleaning but don’t know where to start, The Data Vault can help! Our team of experts can assist you in everything from setting up a basic schedule for when documents can be shredded to the actual pick up and disposal itself.
