High performance, low maintenance. That is why I rely on the Retention Manager™ program to develop records retention schedules for clients. The prime feature is the program’s structure to select, organize and apply record keeping regulations through legal groups to broad categories of records, or retention rules.
These rules are where legal requirements and business needs are key elements of the retention decision process. Rules are easy to keep current, they promote consistencies throughout the organization and they document defensible retention decisions.
