Certified Record Management
This April, we attended the 2016 ARMA Southwest Region CRM conference. It was a fruitful experience, learning about the latest trends and practices in Certified Record Management. We thought we’d take a minute to explain what CRM is, and how it helps us keep your data safe.
Let’s start with what we do. We transport your documents, store them securely, scan and image them and provide you access to your data when you need them. We can transport documents, even across state lines. We deal in information. So naturally, we’re always staying up-to-date on the latest industry practices.
So how does CRM keep us sharp?
The Institute of Certified Records Managers is the leading authority on educating those in the industry about the best ways to handle documents from the moment they leave your hands to their destination and beyond. Records and Information Management, or RIM, comprises a number of different practices that all lead towards one goal– making sure your data stays safe for as long as it’s in our possession.
At the recent conference, one of the major focuses was on Information Governance. Information governance is a broad spectrum of protection for all different types of information, from intellectual property, to disaster recovery to mobile device management. Learning about the different challenges and solutions caused by the latest technologies affords us knowledge about the best way to secure documents not just right now, but so we can do it effectively in the future as well.
In our modern era, new and increasingly inter-connected technologies have made secure document solutions more important than ever. The Institute of Certified Records Managers agrees that the need for effective planning and implementation of information management grows each and every day.
At Armstrong Archives, whether it’s document scanning in Fort Worth, TX or document destruction in Dallas, TX or across the county, we believe that keeping your information safe is of the utmost importantance. We strive to stay up to date on every piece of tech and every solution so we can best serve you.
Secure document storage is just a click or call away.
