Best practice records management starts here

Modern Records Management is more than the ability to capture a record from a range of different sources and keep them safe and authentic. It includes the ability for end users to leverage those records to either respond faster, more efficient, or better informed, based on the trustworthiness of the record.

What’s your EDRMS?

Blurb about how these collaboration and modern working tools work with both ECM and Content Manager.

Extend governance beyond your EDRMS

We have a range of solutions that work with both Objective ECM and Micro Focus Content Manager that extend governance structure from your EDRMS to apps that business users rely on in their day-to-day work practices.

Secure external file sharing

Share documents with external parties, securely with governance extended from your EDRMS: Content Manager or Objective ECM

Maintain a single source of truth

Two-way synchronisation with your existing file plan keeps everyone up to date. Files received are automatically filed in the correct location, ensuring metadata is always accurate.

You are in charge of who does what

Existing permissions, classifications, shares and caveats from the EDRMS are applied automatically. You can then control the abilities of each user invited to a Workspace: download, upload, edit, share, add comments and invite participants.

For their eyes only

When your documents are extremely sensitive, set a Workspace to be preview-only. Documents can be shared, but never downloaded. Every page is watermarked with the participants’ email address and time stamped.

Comply with your records management obligations

Transactional audit reports can be produced at any time, providing the granularity that is required by records and information managers. Seamless integration to the audit trail in Micro Focus Content Manager and Objective ECM is always kept up to date.

Making governance easy
