Today, business is more competitive than ever. The need to provide employees with the best tools to do business in a financially limited environment is a constant challenge. The debate over “going in-house” versus “outsourcing” has run on for years with companies doing one or the other, or both. For your business, the decision is even more difficult if you have an existing set of records and no equipment or expertise left in the office to handle the responsibility.
If you have documents that you need to keep for regulatory or compliance reasons, you might have considered storing them off site or getting them scanned. Having a framework to help you make the decision as to which is best in what cases can be helpful in understanding when you should continue to store your documents and when scanning them would produce a return on investment.
