    A Document Versus a Record

    14 Apr 2020

    There can often be blurred lines between documents and records and sometimes some confusion too. 

    By their very definition, a document refers to a plan, a report or something that needs to be done. Records are a trail of something that has happened, like an email having been sent, or the minutes from a meeting. 

     

    Documents and records align to help organisations in everything they do, to plan and to record activity, and the effective management of all information of the utmost importance, hence the requirement of document and records management systems.
