Enable a home-based workforce

Your remote employees need a way to safely and securely share and access critical information from their home offices, while remaining compliant through this COVID crisis. We offer digitization and storage services that allow them to easily and securely store, access and transmit important documents.

  • Digitization Solutions: Maintain continuity of paper-based processes by having your records digitized and accessible online. Whether you need to access records in your archive, or inbound new paper documents daily, we can convert them and get the digital copies to the right people quickly and securely.
  • Inventory Audit Services: If you are scheduled for an audit, we can do the work for you. Iron Mountain employees can pull your boxes from their storage location at our Records Center and research the contents. We can also capture metadata and update the box information in Iron Mountain Connect™.
  • Clean Start: Consolidating space or adjusting your real estate portfolio? Iron Mountain can conduct a virtual assessment to help you determine what can be stored or destroyed to free up space. Through this virtual assessment, we can also help you identify records that could be digitized to support your remote workforce.

Manage new supply chain demands

New Supply Chain

The supply chain has been disrupted. In some instances, demand for goods is exceeding supply chain capacity. In others, there may be inventory accumulating as production slows or is diverted to essential products. Businesses may not have enough drivers, warehouse workers, or space to store inventory. We can help you manage critical inventory with security, scale and speed. By leveraging our Secure Business Storage solution, we can receive stock directly from a supplier, pick up and deliver inventory to and from your sites, and store your excess inventory in a secure offsite location nearby until you need it.

Secure Business Storage for Retail, Wholesale & Distribution: Minimize disruption to your supply chain. Iron Mountain can manage the logistics of securely storing and delivering a range of goods and inventory so that you can keep your supply chain moving.

Storage and services include*:

  • Boxes or pallets of goods
  • Floor-loaded containers with services to unload, sort, and separate
  • Pick and pack
*Iron Mountain cannot store biohazards, material that is flammable, material that is regulated by laws and/or regulations relating to the environment, items that may attract pests, items that are dangerous or unsafe to handle, or hazardous materials.
