Iron Mountain and Hyland Team Up to Improve Back-Office Processes
Iron Mountain Incorporated® (NYSE:IRM), the global leader in storage and information management services, today announced a partnership with Hyland, a leading provider of information management solutions, to help reduce the costs and inefficiencies associated with manual, paper-based back-office business functions like accounts payable, contracts management and other back-office processes. Through the partnership, Iron Mountain introduces Iron Mountain Workflow Automation™ powered by Hyland, a set of solutions that automate the workflows for these functions, enabling organisations of all sizes to efficiently convert to digital ways of working, saving time and reducing costs. Removing paper is cited as the single, biggest improvement for workplace productivity by nearly half of information professionals, according to the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM, Paper Free Progress, 2016). By combining Iron Mountain’s records management and document imaging processes with OnBase by Hyland hosted workflow software, customers can work more efficiently by integrating physical and digital information.
“The mix of hard-copy paper and digital information flowing through organisations is a challenge when it comes to managing the regulatory compliance and efficiency of back-office functions that control costs and drive revenue,” said Steve Kowalkoski, vice president and general manager for the United Kingdom, Iron Mountain. “Solving this issue can unlock the value of all that information, including faster contract signings and payments, while also protecting an organization from the risks of ungoverned information. Partnering with a technology leader like Hyland helps our customers save time, cut costs and reduce risk by meeting current and future compliance requirements.” Iron Mountain Workflow Automation™ powered by Hyland solutions can provide the following benefits: • Accounts Payable – Streamlined A/P processing, reduced employee involvement to exception handling, reduced cost per transaction; • Accounts Receivable – Streamlined monthly financial close, improved controls, visibility, tracking and dispute resolution; • Human Resources – Freedom from routine tasks, process visibility with quantitative metrics and audit tracking; • Contracts Management - Faster turnaround, minimised risk of noncompliance penalties and missed opportunities for renegotiation.
“With General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) approaching, information governance is taking on a whole new meaning, becoming a fundamental business tool intertwined with workflow automation,” said Mick Heys, vice president, European Imaging, Printing & Document Solutions at IDC1. “With the addition of Hyland-powered document workflow solutions, Iron Mountain is in a strong position to offer market-leading document workflow optimisation and information governance under the same umbrella.”
