When you’re in business there are many every day details to consider and decisions to make. Archiving and history preservation may be on the bottom of your list; however, this is just as important as planning for the future of your company. Here are just a few benefits of archival consulting:
Ensures your company is in compliance for audit trails, data immutability and data retention: If you ever get audited or otherwise need to access records, you’ll be able to do so easily and conveniently.
Improves the performance of current business applications : This results in increased productivity across all departments within the company
Makes accessing archived records readily available for retrieval by authorized users
Having an archive system allows you to phase out obsolete systems used strictly for data.
The process of archiving can be a complex one, particularly if you don’t already have a system in place. Companies such as History Factory have skilled and experienced consultants that can help your organization with all of its data, including archiving. Consultants will work with you to create not only an archive of your history but to tell your organization’s story, from inception to the present-day.
Data archiving is not just about a history of stats and numbers; it’s about preserving the past and looking to the future. Without past knowledge, your organization will have difficulty moving forward.
So where do you even start? That’s a tough question and if you were undertaking the project on your own, it could be so overwhelming that the project wouldn’t even get off the ground. You need professional resources and consultants to help you sort through the information and put it together in a logical manner.
The History Factory understands the value of heritage, and integrates this with a storytelling approach that can provide an insight into your company for years to come. Contact The History Factory for more information and follow us on Twitter.
