Provides Records Managers with Invaluable Insight into Compliance, Going Green, and Costs

Archive Systems, Inc., a leading provider of records and document management services, today announced it developed the RIM Score to provide instant visibility into the health of an organization’s records management program. This powerful resource arms records managers with information they’ve never had available previously, enabling them to run a much more effective program.

“Records managers finally have a tool that clearly shows how to improve the management of their records collection, and the results are impressive. We first rolled the RIM Score out to our clients and they really responded well to it. The number highlights areas of strengths and weaknesses, providing them with invaluable insight into areas that can be improved. This is practical information they can use to boost the efficiencies of their program while cutting costs and ensuring compliance,” said Jim Farrell, Senior Vice President of Product Development at Archive Systems.

The RIM Score is based on three key components of a records management program: compliance, going green, and cost effectiveness. How an organization is performing in these areas is then compared to its peers, making the score a dynamic, living metric. These are then presented as one score to the Records Management professional, giving them a Key Performance Indicator they can track over time. The score is backed by a breakdown of the core areas so the Records Management professionals can clearly see areas that can be improved.

“By consistently measuring a variety of variables and calculating metrics against their peers and industry standards, records managers have essential tools and insight to run an efficient and cost-effective program. Our clients continue to prove this every day as they make adjustments to improve their score and achieve significant savings,” added Randy Sanders, Product Manager at Archive Systems.

The RIM Score is available as part of the ArchiveMetrics™ reporting tool in ASPEN Virtual File Room and ASPEN Virtual Records Center. This tool provides users with key information so they can stay compliant and control costs all while being progressive with their paperless initiatives.
