What is document archiving?

Document archiving involves placing inactive documents into long-term storage in any data medium, allowing these documents to be readily available at a moment’s notice. In addition to providing easy retrieval for older documents, document archiving provides security and legal protections to ensure all documentation is accounted for. It also helps save valuable space both in your office and on servers.

The benefits of secure document archiving

When business documents like invoices, employee applications, vendor contracts, facility documentation, sales presentations and more are safely archived and fully organized, your organization can protect itself against litigation, leaks and loss while realizing key benefits of digitization.


Achieve a paperless office

Digitized information stored in protected digital archives means no more paper in the office: no more lost documents, printing headaches and overflowing file cabinets.


Simplify audit preparation

Secure archiving not only means you know where everything is, but that it’s organized, findable and accessible for audit preparation and delivery.


Meet compliance standards

Regulatory compliance standards are designed to protect people and companies. When documents are organized and secured, achieving compliance standards is greatly simplified and expedited.


Prepare for disasters

Natural disasters or malicious attacks can destroy unprepared organizations. Secure archiving supports your disaster recovery processes to help you bounce back from unforeseen catastrophes.
