In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Canon Business Process Services Shares Records Management Best Practices to Improve Compliance, Reduce Risk in 2013

During the year ahead many enterprises will look for effective steps to better manage information in order to realize important business benefits. One area that can potentially improve efficiency, reduce risk and enhance compliance may come as a surprise to many businesses: records management.

Why a surprise? The reason is that while most organizations recognize the value of effectively managing information, many of them do not dedicate the necessary resources to an important subset of this activity. This occurs despite the fact that successful records programs are critical for effectual governance, risk management, reputation protection and strategic decision making. The good news is that records management best practices – whether outsourced or managed internally – can yield important business benefits. Canon Business Process Services, Inc., a leading provider of managed services and technology, spotlights six of these practices to consider for 2013:

  • Process analysis – Analyze current processes and procedures to create a benchmark between the current state and desired outcome.
  • Records classification – Either at creation or upon receipt, classify each record as such to ensure that it is recognized appropriately, and then separate the documents that have no value or are copies and can thus be discarded.
  • Retention and Disposition – Create a retention schedule that will help determine what data or information should be declared a record, and how each record should be managed throughout its lifecycle. This also includes the later stages such as disposition, when either permanent archiving or destruction takes place.
  • Electronic Records Management – Manage records electronically, which can dramatically reduce document retrieval time, freeing up staff to work on tasks of higher value than filing, storing and searching.
  • Physical Records Management – Establish a records center for secure access to physical records. This should involve rigorous electronic tracking to allow for more efficient archiving and retrieval. It is important to note that electronic and paper-based records should be managed in a similar fashion, not disjointedly as is the norm within many corporations.
  • Document Imaging and Data Capture – Utilize paper to digital conversion services and technology that includes scanning, coding, OCR (optical character recognition) and document discovery.
