SharePoint for information management

Your requirement

  • Are you thinking of using SharePoint to manage your documents and records? Have you already installed some SharePoint sites but need to plan how to roll the system out further?
  • Are you worried about SharePoint sprawl and lack of information governance?
  • Do you want to know how to organise and configure SharePoint to create a manageable and sustainable corporate solution?
  • Do you want to use SharePoint in conjunction with an EDRM system for more serious records management?

Our solution

Cimtech has been assisting with SharePoint implementations since SharePoint 2003. With SharePoint 2010 we finally have an acceptable solution for document and records management.

With our background in ECM and EDRM we know how to organise, classify and index information and what records managers need to enable them to apply retention schedules and assure long-term preservation.

We can configure your SharePoint sites and draw up an Information Architecture to decide what goes where between SharePoint sites and other systems.

We can create a classification scheme to organise your site collections, sites and document libraries.

We can design corporate metadata and ways to automate its capture.

We can design workflow to make best use of SharePoint for business processes and document approval.

We can advise on the best use of SharePoint for collaboration and intranet purposes.

We can assist with the purchase of add-ons for email capture, scanning and other functionality beyond SharePoint’s current scope.

We can advise on the integration between SharePoint and EDRM systems and how to make best use of the strengths of each.
