2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season Securing Business Documentation

Tim Nissen | 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season Securing Business Documentation.

IntelliChief ECM encourages businesses to prepare against any disaster recovery situations by including electronic document management as part of their business continuity planning, in light of 2016’s Atlantic hurricane season, spanning June 1 – November 30.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) statement, 2016 is expected to bring 12 named storms, with five hurricanes and two major hurricanes (Category 3 or stronger) this year.

With IntelliChief’s own offices located in Florida and Massachusetts, the company’s first-hand experiences are in-line with their ECM’s users’, encompassing the protection of critical strategic and daily-operational information.

Though all organizations experience fiscal losses due to business continuity interruptions, the U.S. National Archives & Records Administration states that 60 percent of companies that lose their data are out of business within six months of the disaster. With paper documentation in file drawers throughout organizations being vulnerable to wind, water and fire, it’s the business-dependent information contained in this format that forms the foundational loss in a disaster. This problem is easily eliminated through ECM’s ability to automate both paper’s capture/electronic file conversion, secure storage and access, as well as the daily interdepartmental processes workflow benefits provided. ECM is the informational cornerstone of a disaster recovery and business continuity plan for an organization.
