As the volume of information managed by your organization grows, it makes sense to reevaluate whether your current information management tools are keeping up with your needs. Whether it is for email management, electronic documents, and/or physical records and assets tracking, here are the 5 most critical tools that the best information management solution for your organization should have.
At this time, physical records were king and office after office were flooded with records that needed to be organized and controlled. Records Managers were then heralded in to create structure out of records chaos.
Now, 30-40 years later, records have, for the most part, become digital and the drive towards paperless records looks ever more likely. Physical records still remain, but they have significantly decreased, particularly with the advances in digitization technology. These digital records encompass, but are not limited to, emails, electronic documents, databases, and digital media. With this dramatic shift and ease of digital storage, Records Managers are now in charge of more records than ever before.

These days, information governance for law firms is a major topic of concern across the industry, which explains why Legaltech News published it on the front page of its newsletter.
