This is evidenced by the fact that there are still many agencies that still manage their archives manually so that it takes a long time for the processing to reach the information retrieval process. One agency that has not yet managed its archives electronically is the Wali Nagari Dilam Office, Solok Regency. Therefore, there is a need for training related to managing records electronically using the ARTERI application to make it easier for village officials to manage their records.
