A few weeks ago, our team attended the ARMA Live! 2017 conference at the Orlando World Center Marriot. We were impressed with its forward-thinking theme, “Agents of Change,” which focused on the evolving roles of ARMA members everywhere.
We’re excited about the upcoming ARMA Live! 2017 conference at the Orlando World Center Marriott October 15th – 17th. The agenda promises many interesting sessions about the latest innovations in records management and information governance. Come by, say hi and sign up to win an Apple Watch or an Amazon Echo.
ILTACON 2017 was a huge success! FileTrail’s team met with clients, consultants, and law firms of all sizes throughout the conference. We were busy all day, every day, doing demos. Some people got to see FileTrail’s records management software in-action for the first time, while many dropped by to see a preview of our latest upgrades.
Firms today do not have systems that manage and process their retention policies or outside council guidelines (OCG) when it comes to disposition of old data. As a result, they continue overspending on of electronic documents and physical records past their destruction dates. Even worse, they are subject to unnecessary risk from the inconsistent application of their stated retention policies.
Disposition isn’t easy. Over the past few decades, a number of new federal and state regulations essentially forced law firms to get serious about document management. As a result, they invested in compliance, purchasing software solutions, like eDocs and iManage. However, these solutions failed to solve the disposition problem. Why? Because during this same period there was a dramatic growth in the volume and types of records that law firms needed to manage.
Now is the time to consider migrating out of your old and outdated records management systems into a modern and efficient information management solution. Upgrading your systems will improve productivity, minimize risks and reassess security needs. Choosing a new solution may be a challenge depending on budget, usability, and security requirements. Another challenge may be old legacy data or simply the hassle of migration when you’re talking millions of records. Before you take your next step, let’s focus on the top 3 data migration focus points your information team should understand well.
If you’re reading this, odds are you are looking to replace an aging records management software system. We’re hearing from most large firms that their software is either being sunsetted or it’s simply too clumsy and inefficient. As you surely know, both issues lead to high costs because aging systems require a lot of internal support. But we have it on good authority (our customers) that we can provide a better way.
Just as Tesla worked to create a solution for a greater number of customers, we engineered on to do the same. Keeping our core values in mind we wanted to stretch our reach and help more organizations. Now into the last phase of our road map, and bootstrapped the whole way, we began to dream about electronic document management without dropping our bread and butter, PRM.
