The consistent management of all records — both active and inactive, wherever they reside — is a key to compliance. Many organizations currently rely on multiple systems to manage their onsite, active records and other systems to manage their offsite, inactive records. A centralized solution managing records throughout their entire lifecycle, from declaration through retention and finally disposition, can help you reduce the overall cost of storing and managing corporate records while mitigating legal and compliance risks.

Accutrac™ Software from Iron Mountain

Iron Mountain Accutrac software helps track, manage, and apply policy to your active and inactive records wherever they reside. Accutrac helps improve consistency and reduce risk through records classification, workflow management, retention, legal hold and disposition management.

  • Helps to mitigate legal, regulatory, and compliance risks providing clear audit trails
  • Provides control of all records inventory through a single interface
  • Offers real-time access for retrieval of records stored at Iron Mountain

Microsoft® Office Outlook® Integration

Native integration with Microsoft Outlook enables you to easily drag and drop email messages classifying them as records in the Accutrac repository. You can view any Accutrac records — including boxes, files, and email — directly from Outlook.

Automate Electronic Records Management

Today’s Records Managers are faced with a dilemma: “How can I achieve my compliance goal without throwing out our existing investment?” Many companies have already made significant investments in an Enterprise Content Management system. While these systems often excel at document access and workflow, many lack even the most basic records management capabilities required for compliance.

Accutrac can extend your Enterprise Content Management system by providing the full suite of compliance and retention management capabilities to electronic records already managed by those systems. Accutrac leverages existing technology investments with proven integrations to provide support for a wide range of content management systems and databases. This lets you consistently manage records regardless of format or location. This single view of all records provides consistent and accurate records tracking, access, policy management and enforcement across the entire organization.

Accutrac integrates with IBM® FileNet for consistent access and policy management.
