Records management (RM) is the supervision and administration of digital or paper records, regardless of format. Records management activities include the creation, receipt, maintenance, use and disposal of records..
Records Management ensures that institutional records of vital historical, fiscal, and legal value are identified and preserved, and that non-essential records are discarded in a timely manner according to established guidelines and identified legislation.
An EDMS (or electronic document management system) is a system to store, manage, and retrieve documents. Being able to access, edit, and distribute documents in one place helps to centralize operations and streamline processes.
