Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 17, 2011
RSD, a leading provider of information governance solutions for the enterprise, today at ARMA International’s 56th annual conference and expo announced a strategic partnership with Fontis International, publisher of the industry’s first cloud service for international retention research.
“We are excited to announce a strategic partnership between RSD and Fontis International,” said Steve Formica, Fontis President and CEO. “Information governance is a growing concern for the enterprise. Organizations need a way to make informed decisions based on constantly changing international legal requirements. With fully integrated support for our legal research product, RSD GLASS™ customers can leverage the platform’s policy and content management capabilities across the entire organization with greater legal precision.”
The Fontis Legal Data Service (LDS) is the industry’s first subscription-based international retention research product available in the cloud. LDS Subscribers receive high quality legal information sourced from top law firms with local expertise that later goes through an extensive curatorial process by an in-house team to ensure consistent service standards across all jurisdictions. As new regulations become available and existing requirements are changed, updated regulations are delivered automatically, keeping the entire organization in sync with the latest regulations.
RSD GLASS helps organizations manage corporate risk and improve operational efficiency as they work to achieve compliance with regulations and laws governing enterprise information and records management. RSD GLASS is the first information governance platform to address all phases of the enterprise information lifecycle.
The partnership delivers an integrated solution whereby legal and regulatory content for any number of jurisdictions and areas of the law are provided by Fontis and fed directly into an RSD GLASS deployment, which is then implemented across content repositories. Components of the Fontis subscription are easily changed as a company moves in and out of jurisdictions and new or old lines of business. As a result, customers receive precise and up-to-date regulations within a comprehensive platform to enforce compliance across the entire organization.
“The partnership with Fontis brings significant value to our customers,” commented Pierre Van Beneden, RSD CEO. “Fontis is the expert in tracking the rapidly changing world of regulations and laws. RSD’s technology enforces the retention policy established by Fontis research across the multitude of content repositories a company may have in their organization. The pairing of these solutions certainly accelerates the deployment of an information governance solution within an organization, particularly those that face the challenges of operating in multiple jurisdictions. The products are a natural fit with one another.”
