Atlanta Shredding Company, A Shred Ahead, Highlights Importance of Records Retention

The Atlanta shredding firm, A Shred Ahead, wants to remind businesses that a failure to retain important records can lead to legal issues if they find themselves involved in lawsuit or investigation.

    NORCROSS, GA, April 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The document shredding firm, A Shred Ahead, wants to stress the importance of records retention to business owners. Many companies have found themselves in the hot seat when it comes to being investigated for fraudulent practices or when involved in a lawsuit by not producing documentation that could reveal the truth. To protect your company from potential harm, implementing an effective corporate records retention policy is critical. The Atlanta shredding company notes that consistent and orchestrated efforts are necessary to ensure your business is in line with government regulations. According to Tom Hanlon, "We do our best to educate clients about records retention. Many business owners fail to realize that shredding documents is only one component. Although important, maintaining records for a set period of time and educating employees about the company's policies matters just as much." It cannot be overstated that paper shredding in Atlanta is critical for preventing identity theft, but discarding documents too early can lead to far greater problems.

Log all Suspension and Destruction Dates, Notes the Atlanta Shredding Firm
By keeping a detailed inventory of every piece of documentation that comes and goes and when this information was stored, retrieved and destroyed is the only way to guarantee proof of regulatory compliance. A Shred Ahead does note that strict retention periods are necessary to reduce waste build-up and to keep operations running efficiently. There are many records management software programs that can be used to log data and keep track of retention deadlines.
