Jersey City, New Jersey (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
GRM, a leading provider of lifecycle records management solutions today announced the official launch of GRMpedia, a web-based, on demand subscription service that helps businesses identify regulatory risks and stay in compliance. What GRMpedia provides is an easily accessible, continuously updated one-stop source of Federal and State retention and reporting regulations.
Fred Diers, Vice President, General Manager of GRM’s Solutions Group, stated that the GRMpedia name draws from the suffix for ‘encyclopedia’ and the popular online resource, ‘Wikipedia’ to help convey what the service is about, namely that it is an informative, web-based compendium of knowledge. Mr. Diers, who has played a key role in developing the new service, went on to say, “GRMpedia is ground-breaking because it answers a critical, underserved, organizational need in the area of compliance. It provides the defensible criteria for realistic and compliant retention periods for organizational record categories. The service can provide virtually every business with an easy-to-understand, codified resource of regulations directly relevant to a company’s operations and the preservation of its information.”
GRMpedia is unique in its around-the-clock, online accessibility, ongoing updates and delivery of original, rather than interpreted data. “Interpreted data,” explained Mr. Diers, “is susceptible to misinterpretation. That’s why GRMpedia offers only original, credible regulation extracts and quotes, which are derived from the hundreds or thousands of pages comprising a specific regulation” Additional GRMpedia features include, Key Word Search, a ‘See More’ option that allows further investigation of a regulation, an At-A-Glance Risk Matrix and a variety of flexible customization capabilities.
The service is available to any organization on a subscription basis and is included when GRM’s Solutions Group is engaged to create a Records Governance Package and Retention Schedule. For more information about GRMpedia, contact: grmpedia(at)grmdocument(dot)com
