Digi-Shred provides a full cycle Electronic Document Management (EDM) solution for your business, from planning and preparation of the digital transition of your records, to implementing a private online document repository for your documents, and to the secure destruction of paper records. Every business – financial services, retail, manufacturing, education, government, and others – will benefit from affordable technology that assists in capturing, storing and retrieving information.
For certain industries, such as health care, the migration to the electronic health record for each patient is mandatory, and incentives exist to help providers convert to digital form. Converting your records will take planning and an investment of time and resources to reach demonstrated use and achieve long term benefits. Scanning and storing electronic documents is the first step to the electronic record transition.
Document Imaging and Electronic Storage is a multi-step process.
Digi-Shred uses the DigiShred Systems suite of conversion software to capture and assure clarity, readability, and retrievability of your records.
A Certificate of Destruction (COD) is an important document that includes all the pertinent details regarding your shredding service. Following every paper shredding or media destruction service, you will receive a Certificate of Destruction confirming that your material has been securely destroyed. Beyond simply providing peace of mind, your Certificate of Destruction is proof that your information is no longer at risk and that your business is compliant with relevant privacy laws.
If your organization handles documents that contain sensitive and confidential information, you will need to securely destroy them according to proper document retention guidelines. Different industries have different information security risks regarding sensitive information. However, here is an overarching list of the types of information confidential documents can contain:
Information that can be easily overlooked (e.g., boarding passes, shipping labels, photos, etc.)
Digital information (e.g., hard drives)
To remain compliant with privacy and security laws in the event of an audit, your organization should receive a Certificate of Destruction after each service showing that your documents, hard drives, and media have been securely destroyed. A Certificate of Destruction provides proof that your material has been safely and securely destroyed.
This helps to ensure that your organization is meeting all required security laws and can be quite useful in the event of an audit.
A secure shredding service should provide you with a Certificate of Destruction that thoroughly documents the type of shredding service you received, when it occurred, the location of where the document destruction occurred, order number, and any other important details.
Certificates of Destruction are emailed soon after service is completed, no waiting for proof of compliance. However, for your peace of mind, we can also provide paper documentation.

A Certificate of Destruction contains all the essential information pertaining to your shredding service.
Our Certificate of Destruction also highlights the number of trees saved by your organization throughout the year because of your information being securely destroyed and recycled.
While protecting an organization’s confidential information would appear to be the main reason for the policy – and it’s certainly the most important driver – there are many other benefits too.
