The importance of information as an asset should not be underestimated. For organisations to operate effectively and efficiently, they must ensure that they manage their information in a robust and consistent manner. Our specialists can help your business to achieve a competitive advantage through slicker decision making and more accurate and complete reporting of key information.
The increased automation of business processes and electronic storage of data makes it easier for organisations to manage their information. However, without formal information management policies, procedures and structures in place there is a real risk that information is disordered or duplicated and information silos develop which fail to integrate. Where this happens, information may not be readily available or in a format capable of supporting management decision making.
Our consultants and IT assurance specialists have worked with numerous businesses to assess the effectiveness of and support the development of information management arrangements. We are also fully up to date with the relevant legislative, regulatory and best practice requirements.
Our objective is to ensure that your business implements and maintains information management arrangements that enhance business efficiency and effectiveness.
We will work with you to understand your current processes for managing information to assess the effectiveness of collection, storage, availability, retention, security and disposal of information.
For those businesses with multiple locations, we have developed review processes that allow us to efficiently gather data on the practices and operations at each site. This allows us to provide you with an evaluation of practices as well as potential options for ensuring consistency of practice and enhancing processes.
