Government regulatory industries still require that certain documents are kept for their life cycle. And if any of these records are in paper format, they need to be stored and archived properly. Storage of these documents is paramount, but also the scanning of these documents so that they remain beyond their legal life cycle may be important for your business as well.
In order to be safe confidential documents should be stored off site to protect against loss, theft or fire. The traditional “office” has been disrupted by shared office space or some staff even working from home. Some businesses may not see the need for more physical space and will save money on rent. So what happens to the paper documents that still need to be kept?
