Featuring newly developed capabilities called Intelligent Retention and Content Federation Services, FileNet Records Manager now offers business users enhanced out-of-the-box flexibility to meet compliance goals across multiple content repositories and legal jurisdictions. FileNet also announced that they have entered into an agreement to acquire Yaletown Technology Group, Inc.

Records Crawler is designed to draw on the rules established in FileNet’s Records Manager’s File Plan. FileNet and Yaletown Technology Group have been marketing an integrated email management offering through an OEM relationship, offering customers email management capabilities integrated with FileNet Records Manager and Content Manager repository. The purchase of Yaletown Technology Group is an all cash transaction valued at approximately $11 million net of cash for all of the stock in the company.
