History of Record Nations
1977 – TRI-R Systems was founded by David Powelson as a limited partnership to engage in recycling of paper, aluminum cans, and metal. At that time one-stop recycling was revolutionary.
Scrap metal, waste paper, and containers were all recycled through different entities. Even the word, recycling had not yet been printed in dictionaries and it was not a category in the Yellow Pages.
1980 – Document management for confidential records started as a service to help companies comply with privacy requirements.
1994 – DataGuard USA was formed when it became clear that document management was an extension of corporate security and required a higher level of oversight than our existing recycling customers.
1999 – The first Shred Nations website is launched to help customers across North America.
2003 – Shred Nations was registered as a trade name. Regional and local providers joined the Shred Nations network to offer secure document management services across North America. Steven Hastert assumes the role of President of the company.
2006 – Scanning and Records Storage services offered through Record Nations.
2013 – Shred Nations serves document management customer 200,000. Opens network of drop off shredding locations to better serve homes with limited volumes to shred.
2014 – Shred Nations serves document management customer 300,000.
Custom Document Management Solutions:
Records storage is the foundation for information storage at every business. There are records that need to be maintained for business reasons, and others for regulatory requirements.
An off site document storage service takes the headache and costs out of onsite storage. Records are stored in a secure, climate controlled facility, and documents can be delivered to the office when needed.
Off site storage saves money on office real estate costs and provides security that might be unavailable at a self storage unit.
A ‘paperless office‘ is something that is becoming a reality for many businesses. Medical practices are leading the way due to the requirements of the HITECH act, but more and more small to medium sized businesses are recognizing the benefits of having hard-copy documents available electronically.
Businesses are using document digitizing to convert paper records to electronic files to reduce their storage costs and increase their accessibility.
The move toward cloud storage for data is a reality, but storing data on magnetic media will be a viable alternative for years.
The mistake many businesses make is to either keep the backup tapes next to the server where they will prove useless if the disaster happens at the business or to allow employees to transport the tapes.
Tape storage not only provides a safe environment and a secure chain of custody when the tapes are being transported.
