Why outsource your document storage and records management to EDM?

The experts at EDM work tirelessly to stay at the forefront of security, compliance and innovation within the offsite document storage industry. They work tirelessly to stay abreast of trends, help you build secure processes and, in turn, mitigate risk. Routinely consulting with businesses and partners to understand the needs of the marketplace and ensure that our service is innovative and fit for your needs.

Ease of Access

Think of EDM’s state-of-the-art facilities as an extension to your workplace. Do as you would normally with your documents through our same-day retrieval process… without the associated onsite filing footprint.

Our scan-on-demand service allows you to access your documents digitally, wherever you are, through our hosted document management platform, EDMonline™.


Choosing to go offsite with your record management brings the question of security to the forefront. EDM’s document storage facilities contain advanced fire detection and prevention technologies.

All on-site movements are tracked, monitored and collected in a secure audit trail ensuring we know where everything (& everyone) is at all times.


With property costs and management such a substantial part of business outgoings, freeing up space with offsite document storage can have a major impact on the bottom line.

Additionally, EDM’s proactive approach to client relationships extends to delivering regular updates on your account and activities. This consistent visibility and communication enables our team to identify potential cost-saving opportunities within your account and notify you promptly to make sure you’re always getting the best deal.


Compliance is at the heart of how EDM operates. With so many organisations handling personal and private data on a daily basis, the risk of non-compliance grows significantly. Without a robust document storage process, you could leave yourself open to hefty fines or worse.

In order to mitigate these risks and minimise potential human error, the EDM team proactively manages your records. Informing you when records no longer need to be retained and can be destroyed.
