FileNet Corporation announced availability of the company’s newest ECM product suite, FileNet Records Manager. Built on the company’s FileNet P8 ECM platform, FileNet’s Records Manager suite offers customers a comprehensive records management solution that is designed to help enforce compliance by automating and streamlining an organization’s records-based procedures and reducing unnecessary end user participation in the processing of records. FileNet Records Manager, powered by FileNet’s ZeroClick technology, is designed to solve regulatory compliance challenges and manage risk by helping organizations: organize, securely store and quickly retrieve essential company records, automatically enforce records management policies, comply with records retention policies, ensure expired records are destroyed in a legally acceptable manner, and reduce discovery and storage costs. FileNet believes its Records Manager solution offers companies an evolutionary approach to records management. The key differentiator in FileNet Records Manager is its FileNet ZeroClick solution, which is designed to enforce records management policies at the technology layer. The underlying functionality of FileNet ZeroClick is “Active Content,” whereby content and business processes work together to facilitate and accelerate information exchange, and respond to business or transaction events. FileNet Records Manager is now shipping. www.filenet.com
