Business as usual is no longer an option
In such a highly regulated, ultra-competitive and rapidly changing industry, it is imperative that you partner with someone who can meet the changing requirements of banks.
The banking industry is continuously evolving due to challenges stemming from regulation, legacy systems, disruptive models and technology, increased competition and a drive for improving the customer experience. As a result, the way your bank identifies, accesses, monitors and protects different types of information has to evolve as well. It is essential that you adapt your bank records retention and internal audit requests, while also ensuring the security of your customer’s information.

Banking Use Cases
A major US bank was experiencing a high level of check fraud. As a result, it became necessary to review a very large number of previously processed checks in a very compressed time frame. The bank did not have the equipment, manpower, or data capture expertise and technology to process these checks within the deadline.
Iron Mountain quickly configured a solution to receive the previously imaged checks, capture the required metadata using both automation and manual techniques, and then fed that data back to the customer.
- Met required deadline and completed necessary analysis to inform their fraud system
- Leveraged the Iron Mountain solution for incident management and day-forward monitoring
A global financial services company was consolidating facilities nationwide, looking at how to best utilize available space. The company struggled to manage physical files, which at the time were being stored in cabinets located near specific employees who needed access to those particular files. The goal was to simplify access to these files for authorized employees as the company transitioned to a more mobile and remote workforce.
Iron Mountain partnered with the customer to create and execute a holistic solution to back file highly active images and store, microform and deploy an image on demand solution for the less active files. A day forward plan was put in place for image capture and born digital documents to optimize business processing and enable employee access to information.
- Lowered operating expenses
- Reduced cycle times
- Greater control and visibility into processes
- Optimized spend with day-forward process
- Uniform indexing scheme to manage older documents

- Reduced duplicate and ghost files
- Reduced costs for processing incoming documentation
- Greater compliance with up to date paperwork for employees
