Records Management

Records management is the ability to manage your information and records. Effective records management is crucial in supporting your business, and being able to meet your regulatory and compliance obligations.

The lack of robust records and information management can cause your organisation many problems. When information is poorly organised and hard to find, staff will lose time searching for information which may be out-of-date or incorrect. And by keeping all your information forever, you increase costs, risks and confusion for people trying to find the ‘right’ information.  Without implementing a process for management and disposal of information, not only do you run the risk of poor decision-making based on low-quality data; you may also be in breach of data protection legislation by keeping personal information for longer than you need to.
