4 Reasons To Outsource Record Retrieval Services

Jun 24 2014 | posted by LORR Team

Record retrieval is an inherent part of the case-building process. Virtually any case you handle will need some form of document or record, and this means that you, your assistant, or someone else on your team will have to file forms, contact records custodians, and ensure that the papers are produced before your case goes to trial. This process is often time-consuming and tedious, but utilizing outsourced record retrieval services can alleviate these pressures and make it infinitely easier to build your case. If you have not yet utilized record retrieval services at your firm, consider the following four benefits of doing so:

1.  It produces records faster. Outsourcing to a professional record retrieval
services company can save you time. Record acquisition can be an extremely time-consuming process that requires you to fill out and fax or mail paperwork, call and follow up with different people, and send couriers to pick up and deliver everything. If you’re not highly organized, this process can take weeks or months to get a single record, which is too long for most cases. A professional record retrieval team comes with years of record experience and
they know exactly what to file, who to contact, and how to make sure your documents get produced quickly to shorten the process and get you your evidence for a successful trial.

2.  It allows you to focus on more important tasks. Outsourcing your record retrieval services saves you and your team time and resources, because instead of having to take hours out of your day to file forms and call up records custodians, you can spend your time working with clients, building cases, and marketing your firm. Outsourcing relieves you of having to worry about record retrieval at all, because you have a team that is fully dedicated to producing your records accurately and on time.

3.  It ensures that it’s done correctly. Making a mistake in the record retrieval process can be hugely detrimental to your case. If a form is filed incorrectly, sent to the wrong place, or forgotten altogether, you may have to start again from the beginning, which can result in serious delays that affect the outcome of your case. And if you make too many mistakes, you won’t have time to get the records you need and your case will be short on evidence once it comes to the courtroom. With professional record retrieval services, you can avoid this risk entirely. Record retrieval employees are experts in their field who know how to
proceed with virtually every type of record, be it Social Security, medical, employment, business, payroll, or any other type of record. With their help, you can avoid mistakes in the retrieval process and ensure that your records are delivered quickly and easily.

4.  It saves you money. It costs you money every time you or an in-house staff member handles a record retrieval, because you’re paying for things like the employee’s salary, benefits, desk, office, equipment, and the paper and printer ink they’re using to carry out the task, and you’re also taking them away from other, more important tasks that could influence firm revenues. When you use outsourced record retrieval services, you don’t have to worry about these costs, because you pay a one-time fee for the retrieval and your expenses are done. This makes it a much more cost-effective choice for your company.
