Information Management and Governance (IMG) specialist, iCognition Pty Ltd, announced today a 5-year partnership with Rous County Council in Lismore, NSW to design, build, implement and manage an enterprise electronic Document and Records Management System (eDRMS). The eDRMS product suite will consist of Micro Focus Content Manager, as well as iCognition products; RM Workspace, RM Workflow and RM Public View.
“We are excited to kick off this long-term partnership with Rous County Council’s Group Manager Corporate and Commercial, Guy Bezrouchko, and his team”, said Mr Nicholas Fripp, iCognition Principal Consultant. “We will be working with Council staff to design a user-friendly enterprise grade system to simplify and streamline the way Council staff capture, find and use information from any device, anywhere at any time.”
iCognition was chosen as the implementation partner though a vigorous tender review and evaluation process, enabling Council to not only chose the system that best met their needs, but also an implementation partner that will guide and assist Council through the implementation and long-term management of the system.
“Having been through the process of choosing a SharePoint-based eDRMS in the past, and then discovering during the implementation that the solution was not fit for purpose, it was important this time round that we selected a system and implementation partner that had strategic long-term fit with our direction, team and goals of the organisation” said Mr Bezrouchko.
Content Manager will provide a strong records management engine for Council, while the iCognition product suite will provide users with core system functions and features on their chosen devices, both in the office and out in the field, to not only capture information but also make accurate and efficient decisions and approvals. The solution will provide fast, agile outcomes with the flexibility to make changes and simple upgrades, all while providing strong information governance for Council.
