I would have thought most records management systems contain that functionality.  I know TRIM and several others do.

Having to manage a separate application that may not even be able to be integrated with an ERMS and is basically duplicating the functionality of an ERMS seems to me to be inefficient waste of time and money.

Have a look at the purpose "built" applications for recordkeeping which contain the functionality to manage records disposition.

I created a prototype database in Microsoft Access.  Once the design and
proof of concept were acceptable, my "techies" coded it in SQL and we
enabled the program.  I control the permissions, but the basic data
including a strong keyword search, are used by the entire Agency.  If
you are interested in more detail, please contact me.

If you're using Microsoft Office and already have the information in
Excel you could import it directly into MS Access.  I've used it
successfully to manage active and inactive (off-site storage) records.
Your IT support may already have someone on board who could assist in
setting up the system and supporting it.

Subject: [RM] Software to manage record scheduling information

Hello,
We have been looking at our options for managing the record series level
information contained in our record retention schedules as well as to
track the record transfers we make to an offsite storage facility.  We
have no plans at the moment to introduce an electronic records
management system to our organization so what we basically need is an
inexpensive alternative to recording this information in Excel
spreadsheets as we do now.  We are hoping to avoid having to create our
own database if possible.  I have spoken to some of my colleagues and it
appears that others in a similar situation still rely on spreadsheets to
manage this information.

I would very much appreciate hearing from anyone who could suggest an
inexpensive and quick to implement alternative if one exists.  
Thanks

Annemarie
