Ascertus Limited has entered into a partnership with Legal RM, a specialist in records management consultancy and software development; to help customers effectively manage electronic and physical records for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.
iManage technology partner, Legal RM will support Ascertus and help the company implement the iManage Records Manager system for customers as they ready their businesses for GDPR compliance. Consultancy from Legal RM will primarily focus on records audit and analysis, records management policy development and process design. The partnership will also allow iManage Records Manager clients to benefit from Legal RM’s Mobile Records Center and Lifecycle suite of applications to further enhance their compliance obligations as well as accrue efficiency gains.
Roy Russell, CEO of Ascertus Limited said, “GDPR compliance isn’t a one-off activity, it will need to be a core component of law firms’ information governance programmes for the foreseeable future. Therefore, it’s vital that records management is tailored to the specific requirements of individual firms. We have an in-depth understanding of iManage Work and iManage Records Manager, and with Legal RM’s expertise and experience in the consultative analysis of records management applications; our customers can be assured that their solution will be geared to their way of working. We are not shy of reaching out to industry leaders for specialist skillsets that we don’t have internally, delivering a quality service is of the utmost importance to us.”
Christopher Giles, Managing Director at Legal RM, added, “Ascertus is a well-respected name in the industry, with a growing reputation for understanding clients’ needs. We are partnering with them to help customers towards their GDPR compliance whilst streamlining business processes. Both organisations are also like-minded – Ascertus lays the same emphasis on quality, customer service and support, as we do.”
Ascertus customers implementing iManage Records Manager in conjunction with their iManage Work email and document management systems will gain complete visibility and control of electronic and physical client records. Administrators at law firms will be able to set governance policies, including trigger events, retention periods and disposition rules, as well monitor and enforce compliance on both records and non-records.
