Pharmaceutical sales representatives face a unique challenge: they work remotely, often from their cars, and traverse the nation, fostering relationships with healthcare professionals. While their hard work drives success, it also drives paperwork – much of it containing the kind of sensitive information that demands secure disposal. Metrofile, with its rich experience and in-depth understanding of information governance and management, identified a way to address this challenge.
