Why Scanning Records is Essential for Business

Piles of records taking up too much space in your office? Tired of wondering where your records are when you need them most? Scanning, or digitising, your records could be the answer.

According to an AIIM whitepaper, 75% of organisations feel that ‘business at the speed of paper’ will not be acceptable in five years’ time. You don’t want your business to be left behind. And although there are some tasks that will still require paper over the next several years, most have moved on. It’s time for your business to move with them.

What if you could have access to any record, any time, with the click of a mouse? It sounds like a dream, but with Iron Mountain, this could be your reality. Outsourcing your records management processes is the beginning of your paperlight journey, one that turns the anxiety and expense of records management into a sense of calm security.
