Do you have records stored with insufficient or no descriptive data?
To properly manage your records inventory and make disposition decisions, you need to know what you have and potentially who is the rightful owner of each box.
Without knowing this, you can’t take action and will hold on to your inventory for much longer than necessary. You could spend the time and resources to manually review each box—a painstaking process, especially if your records are stored across multiple locations. Or you could choose Iron Mountain Smart Reveal. The solution combines your historical metadata with pictures of the outside of each box plus an aerial view of the internal contents, allowing you to make quick and defensible disposition decisions.

When boxes are filled with commingled records, it is difficult to make defensible decisions on disposition.
Iron Mountain's Smart Sort technology is used to sort and reorganize files by destruction eligibility date, category, association, or whatever you require.
