White Paper: Understanding and Selecting the Right Tool for the Job


Capturing, managing and protecting corporate records has become serious business. New laws, tighter industry regulations and increased scrutiny have prompted development of software systems to manage various problems. Finding the right product to meet your records management needs requires an understanding of the various options available.

Content (documents) and records are fundamentally different and can’t be effectively managed the same way. Records are official versions of the facts, and generally need to be preserved, unchanged and uncompromised.

Records management systems, unlike document management software, enable you to manage both paper and electronic documents throughout their mandated lifecycle. This white paper clarifies the alternatives and provides a process for evaluating records management solutions vs. enterprise content management (ECM) systems and enterprise information portals.
