For many years, Records Management (RM) was seen as something that was effectively hidden behind the scenes. However, changes in regulation, legislation and technology mean that RM is now part of mainstream business, with good RM practice seen as vital in avoiding regulatory fines, litigation and reputational damage. It is no longer seen as something isolated as it impinges directly on areas such as Data Protection, Freedom of Information, Information Security and risk mitigation.
IFC has helped numerous organisations set a strategy that includes either upgrading or establishing an Electronic Document and Records Management Solution (EDRMS) and all its related components including;
- Policies and Procedures
- Identification and classification
- Retention and disposition
- Execution and management
From gathering requirements and translating them into software features through to installation and configuration of software IFC is there at every stage.
