  1. Record Management Project Services

Put 65 years off information management experience on our team

Some ⅔* of organizations want to store records offsite, but don’t have the resources to handle the many dimensions and complexities of a records management project. Iron Mountain can help. Working as an extension of your organization, we can handle the end-to-end delivery of any records management project, in tune with the unique needs of your organization and in line with best practices gathered over 65 years. The engagement can be a one-time, periodic or ongoing basis that allows you to stay focused on what you do best -- running your organization.

  • Clean out records and other assets currently held onsite to free up space for workplace transformation projects and real estate changes?
  • Move and manage an entire file room offsite?
  • Clean and restore information assets damaged by disaster or environmental contaminants?
  • Defensibly destroy information as part of a one-time or unique business event, in compliance with industry and government regulations?

Our end-to-end services for records management projects include pack and prep services, offsite file room storage and management, inventory audits, document recovery, shred services and end-to-end management of documents, assets and more.

Once your records are securely stored offsite, you'll have on-demand access to anything your organization needs through our intuitive, cloud-based Iron Mountain Connect™ Records Management application. With just a few clicks, you can search through your offsite inventory, locate what’s required to satisfy an internal or external request and arrange for it to be quickly scanned or delivered, digitally or physically, by one of our vetted and trained employees.
