Records management is crucial to all organisations: unless records are managed efficiently, it is not possible to conduct business, to account for what has happened in the past or to make decisions about the future, thus Records managers must manage organisational information so that it is timely, accurate, complete, cost-effective, accessible and useable. Better information, at the right time, makes better business.
