Banks, Credit Unions, mutual fund companies and other financial services firms need to capture critical information from a large variety of forms and documents. These forms include credit applications, enrollment forms, change of address forms, and correspondence, just to name a few.
The banking industry is records intensive. In North America alone, banks have over 50 million boxes of paper in storage, enough boxes to measure 5.3 miles high if stacked tightly on a tennis court. Bank computers churn out tens of billions of pages of stock print. Employees produce hundreds of millions of emails. Bank records of all kinds take up countless terabytes of electronic storage.
It is no surprise, then, that the banking industry is at the forefront of the records enforcement movement. Banks are moving aggressively to develop enforceable records retention programs, and for good reasons. The potential for savings is huge, and banks are acutely aware of the legal risks posed by inconsistent record destruction practices, and from retaining records beyond current requirements.
Banks who have yet to systematically attack records control issues can easily benchmark themselves against their peers. They may see that 50% savings in any of the areas of records control and retention are ready and waiting – just by doing the right things.
The Insurance Industry creates and retains billions of policy and claim files, along with millions of boxes of corporate records that may have been archived to microfilm or microfiche. Electronic records are bursting through their server seams. Electronic storage devices are littered with multiple copies of obsolete records. Highly-public legal troubles, caused by inconsistent and poorly controlled records destruction, have plagued major players in recent years.
Major insurers are searching for ways to create enforceable record control programs to protect themselves from legal risks. Insurers who partner with USAIS can leverage methodology to create a disciplined and consistent approach to records control. These firms typically find that they can destroy a large percentage of records that are past their useful life, and past the legal requirements for retention.
