Not only has Records Studio joined an exclusive group of products that fully comply with stringent government standards, it has set a new benchmark as a premier enterprise content management software suite.
Miami, FL (Vocus) July 1, 2010
A leading enterprise content management (ECM) solutions provider, WareITis Technologies announced that its Records Studio software has been certified as DoD 5015.2-STD compliant, having met the rigorous requirements established by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for electronics records management.
WareITis is one of only 19 companies in the world that meets this standard, and Records Studio is the only software certified by the DoD for the latest Microsoft platforms: Windows Server 2008 R2 and MS SQL Server 2008 R2.
Awarded by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), a division of the Defense Information Systems Agency, DoD certification is internationally recognized as the highest government and industry standard for electronics records management and security of proprietary and confidential documents and data. This certification, endorsed by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), also ensures that organizations and agencies using Records Studio will comply with federal, state, county and municipal regulations, including Sarbanes-Oxley, SEC Rule 17a-4, HIPAA, and the Patriot Act.
“Not only has Records Studio joined an exclusive group of products that fully comply with stringent government standards, it has set a new benchmark as a premier enterprise content management software suite,” said Andrew (Andy) Blank, President of WareITis Technologies. “All of its records management components have been DoD-certified and the entire software suite was developed on the latest generation Microsoft .NET platform, which delivers the most powerful, flexible, compatible and user-friendly experience in the content management industry.”
The 5015.2 standard specifies mandatory functional requirements based on operational, regulatory and legal needs that must be met by records management application (RMA) software used by the DoD and other government agencies for managing classified records. Certified software products must meet stringent requirements for system interfaces, search criteria and the creation, capture, use, management and disposal of records.
“Essentially,” says Blank, “Records Studio has all the enhancements that come with being a DoD-certified product, including the highest levels of security and complex retention scheduling capabilities, allowing companies to achieve regulatory, legal, and corporate compliance goals. Records Studio gives users the highest levels of protection and functionality and is incredibly easy to use and implement. It also integrates seamlessly with existing ERP applications.”
The Miami Parking Authority (MPA), a government agency that develops and manages public parking in the City of Miami for approximately 6 million vehicles annually, uses Records Studio as a central repository for its content management needs, including imaging, document and records management, and collaboration. By implementing Records Studio as a hosted, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, MPA did not have to incur hardware expenses or hire additional IT personnel to manage the application. Rolando Tapanes, MPA Director of Planning & Development, says, “We manage more than 31,000 parking spaces, and we generate and handle large amounts of paper documents as a result. By using Records Studio, we significantly streamlined our operations, enhanced the ability of our employees to find critical information quickly, and reduced our information management costs. We are excited about the potential offered by Records Studio and we plan to expand its use to other areas of the organization.”
