Recently, Midwest was contracted to assist in a large scale records retention project for a large insurance company. A specific retention schedule was provided and applied to storage inventories for 11 different sites. The project involved reviewing the various descriptions that boxes had been given by personnel at the different sites and then determining not only retention requirements, but also categorizing them into their specific area within the insurance business. The project was originally scheduled to last 8 months and was completed in 6 months which included review of an estimated 50,000 boxes.
The presentation highlighted some of the new reporting systems available on the market. Please see the llink below for sample of data that Midwest can provide on data sets by using new Early Data Analyzer software. Contact Midwest for more information.
