Gain Efficiency, Cost Savings and Compliance with Iron Mountain’s Portfolio of Services

In today’s world, information — whether in paper or digital format — is your company’s most important asset. One that’s vital to serving customers well, making sound business decisions, capitalizing on new opportunities, fulfilling regulatory mandates and more.

Are your information assets really delivering the value they should? Are you able to turn paper and digital records to maximum advantage? Or is this an area of opportunity — where better information management practices could help your business realize cost savings, improve efficiency and reduce risk?

You may be wondering: how can your business get more value from its physical and digital information assets?

The key is taking a consistent approach to information management — one that includes:

  • Identifying what paper and digital records to keep and for how long to avoid the costs associated with storing records longer than required for operational and regulatory requirements
  • Knowing how to organize and secure information, while ensuring usability and accessibility by optimizing workflows and applying technology
  • Determining when and how to securely destroy records at the end of their useful life to protect privacy

These concepts may be simple to grasp, but they’re not so easy to put into action. And, that’s where Iron Mountain can help.
