Interwoven Introduces Integrated Records Manager, Enabling Enterprises to Manage Physical, Electronic and E-mail Records within a Single Unified System

  • 21 October, 2004 13:01

<p>Interwoven Records Manager Helps Companies Improve Productivity, Reduce Records Management Costs, and Ensure Regulatory Compliance</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, October 21, 2004 – Interwoven today announced Interwoven Records Manager, providing enterprises with a single, unified and integrated records management (RM) system to improve productivity, reduce records management costs and ensure regulatory compliance. Interwoven Records Manager encompasses the complete content lifecycle, from creation to archiving and retention, enabling companies to manage paper documents, electronic documents and e-mail under a single system. The availability of Interwoven Records Manager follows Interwoven’s acquisition in August 2004 of the assets of Software Intelligence, Inc., a leading provider of records management systems.</p>
<p>Interwoven Records Manager is initially integrated with Interwoven WorkSite 8 software, the leading collaborative document management solution for the legal, accounting and professional services industries. Over 1,200 organisations and 600,000 professionals already rely on Interwoven WorkSite for document management and collaboration.</p>
<p>“In today’s business environment, companies are increasingly looking for a more effective way to manage records retention across a growing array of electronic media and physical records,” said Richard Collins, managing director of Interwoven. “Until recently, many companies have relied on RM strategies designed for paper records, which are based on labour-intensive manual processes for classification and administration. Businesses are now hard-pressed to keep pace with the explosive growth of electronic records and e-mail. This fundamental inability to scale is compounded by the lack of an integrated solution encompassing paper, electronic records and e-mail, forcing companies to maintain separate silos, which are often spread over geographic locations.”</p>
<p>Interwoven Records Manager addresses current RM challenges by allowing for centralised control over decentralised content, bringing all forms of records throughout an organisation into a single, seamless environment. Providing easy-to-use RM capabilities at the desktop level, Interwoven Records Manager helps companies enforce consistent RM policies which reduces risk and lowers the cost of discovery in the event of legal action. And, built on an enterprise-class architecture, Interwoven Records Manager scales to meet the functional needs of small and large firms, as well as distributed organisations.</p>
<p>“With the volume of electronic content growing exponentially faster than physical content, it’s becoming increasingly clear that existing records management systems and methods are no longer meeting companies’ evolving RM needs,” said Dan Carmel, vice president and general manager, legal solutions at Interwoven. “Organisations can no longer rely on existing disjointed systems, or on individuals to manually classify up to millions of pieces of content. Interwoven Records Manager is addressing these critical challenges by providing organisations with a unified, scalable records management system that enables them to make integrated RM a seamless and efficient part of their daily work processes.”</p>
