Once the decision has been reached to update your current archive storage solution, the final consideration is to confirm how much benefit you can achieve from a file store audit.
However efficient you deem your current solution to be, with professional advice, improvements can always be made.
Archive Acumen regularly undertakes large scale audits of various formats of archived material, which permits the reduction of wasteful and unnecessary storage of material which no longer requires retention; we have achieved reduction rates as high as 83% of the stored volume.
During the process, out-dated material is identified and securely destroyed, before the remaining material is installed into your new archive management system. For complete audit traceability, the defunct material can also be catalogued before destruction.
