Outsourcing is a big industry. Organizations outsource HR, Customer Service and even Virtual Assistants.

This enables the organization to not hire staff in the department, but rather use the RIMEA staff to run the department.


Design, Re-design & Improvement of Records & Information Management Policies

The purpose of policy is to establish the framework needed for effective records management in your organization.

This policy provides advice to employees on the creation and use of records, and sets standards for classifying, managing and storing those records. It therefore provides a framework for the management of information consistent with the Strategic Plan.

Organizations require policies to enable the organization set guidelines in management of various aspects in an organization

Policies and procedures also provide clarity to the reader when dealing with accountability issues or activities that are of critical importance to the company, such as, health and safety, legal liabilities, regulatory requirements or issues that have serious consequences.


Scanning and Indexing of Records

Digitize only what you need

We work with you to develop a solution that converts only business-critical documents to digital, resulting in reduced costs and a strong ROI.


Feasibility Study for Implementation of a Document Management System

The feasibility study focuses on helping answer the essential question of “should we proceed with the proposed project idea?” All activities of the study are directed toward helping answer this question.


Disposition of Records

Disposition of Records is the last stage in records management and covers the aspects of disposal and archiving. Final stage of record management in which a record is either destroyed or permanently retained

Here are questions we aim to help you answer/resolve?

What does disposition mean?

  • What is a records schedule?
    • What is a customised schedule?
    • What is a General Records Schedule?
  • How do I develop a records schedule?
  • When should I update the records schedule?
  • What are the benefits of using records schedules?
  • What is the records schedule review process?
  • Appraisal and Scheduling Work Groups
  • Tips for Scheduling Records
  • Tips for Scheduling Electronic Databases

Understanding what information to keep and disposing of information that is no longer needed is an important part of effective information management.
