Five keys to success when making the move to electronic records

The year’s most popular records management resources so far – Part One
Our records management resource center is chock full of helpful white papers, assessment tools, case studies and presentations.

This is often a result of misconceptions about the nature of records management that persist today, particularly that RIM is strictly about the management of paper records.
