Lack of efficient records management is likened to having a disorganized but brilliant brain in a dead body; it is no good at all. Record management is a key management function that can make or break an organisation. It improves efficiency, increases traceability and ensures regulatory compliance. It is paramount to ensuring that staff has easy access to information in the most cost effective way.
So, why have a concrete records management system?
A good records management system allows you to control the creation of new records for storage. It eliminates duplicate files and merges those in the same context for easy accessibility. It also sifts through the documents and only retains the important records and therefore reduces the need for huge storage space.
