What is ERM?

Electronic Records Management (ER) software

is a program, or a set of programs, used by organizations to manage documents and records throughout the document life-cycle , from creation to destruction. This typically involves retention (and protection from change), until some events occur which relate to the record and which trigger the final disposition schedule to apply to the record. Eventually, typically at a set time after these events, the record undergoes destruction.

AASA’s Electronic Record Management solution offers a simplified and standardized records retention schedules that is compliant with Presidential Directives such as M-19-21 and NARA Strategic Plan.

The solution features capture, classify, recall, redact, produce, and disposition of the subject records including e-mails and documents archiving, auto-categorization, litigation hold definition and application, and FOIA requests (among other features) in an electronic format that is certified by the DOD 5015.02 and Secure Cloud Ready (IL-62).
