What are the benefits of Records Information Management with QFI?

As a business owner, you’re always trying to find smart ways to reduce overhead costs and make your business more efficient. RIM services from QFI can help you achieve these goals by:

Reducing legacy records – storing paper records costs a good deal of time, space, and money. RIM services with QFI can help you identify which physical documents you no longer need so these documents can be disposed of in a compliant and legally defensible manner.

Saving valuable real estate – space used to store old files and documents is space not used for the purpose of growing your business. RIM can reduce or eliminate storage requirements and free up valuable office real estate for more value-added purposes.

Managing fewer vendors – using multiple vendors for RIM tasks creates opportunities for confusion and opens up opportunities for compliance failures. Let QFI be your single source for all your RIM needs so you can eliminate duplication, lower the cost of ownership, and avoid dealing with systems, contracts, and invoices from multiple companies.

Linking your physical and electronic records – a big part of what we do at QFI is add indexing information and meta data to all document conversions so they are easy to find at any time. This can help you administer common policies across all of your information regardless of format or location, making information more readily available to your teams.

Streamlining workflow to improve productivity – by removing paper from key workflows, you replace the need to dig up and retrieve files from storage with the ability to pull anything up in seconds, which can significantly improve business processes.

Improving companywide consistency – effective RIM can strengthen the foundation of your organization and increase the transparency of your records information.

Always Reliable Records Information Management with QFI

Effective RIM can save your business money and time and get you back to doing what you do best.

At QFI, our process is built around maximizing your efficiency and return. Our approach starts with a consultation with you where we determine exactly what you need and how you need it done.

Before the project starts, we will perform a small-scale sample conversion that helps us gain a detailed knowledge of your expectations and what the project itself will involve. Once you’re comfortable with the process, we will provide a detailed proposal outlining the scope of the project and how we will complete it on time, on spec, and within budget.

In our business more than most, the old adage “the devil is in the details” applies. The extent to which an organization and conversion vendor understand the requirement details will largely determine final cost, and, ultimately, the success of the project. At QFI, Inc., we manage every aspect of every document management job to ensure you get everything you need, every time.

Get it right the first time. Experience the professional workmanship and project management QFI provides, whether your project is large or small.
