The right information at the right place at the right time....... Information Faster


by Noel Rath 

HP TRIM enables organisations to meet their regulatory compliance obligations and facilitates the e-discovery process. But that's not all! 

A core goal of any organization is to improve productivity and free up staff to work on value-added tasks for the business.  However, a third of non-legal professionals and half of all legal professionals spend more than an hour a day searching for information.  But there is more at stake than just lost time.

Delivering information faster is of value when all corporate information is available for users where they need it, when they need it and without wasting resources in gathering the information. And importantly, it must be easy to access for all authorized staff. This is a necessary and important step towards making informed decisions and gaining insight into the business.

My last decade has been working in the vendor community with enterprise content management products and their precursors. During that time I’ve seen many implementations of information management products. The most impressive experience was on joining Tower Software when I entered an organization that embraced records and documents as core to their complete business. The culture was impressive to see. A culture that had the confidence that anyone could find the right information needed to do their work easily. With no need to chase people to find that critical document and no need to recreate what was already there, the productivity benefits were obvious to all employees.

How was this done? With all corporate records and documents accessible through a well planned, structured classification system, finding the right information became so easy.

So the right information in the right place at the right time and without wasting time getting to it means improved productivity, ensures decisions are made on all the information thereby delivering improved organisational effectiveness.

What are your experiences?  We are keen to encourage dialogue on this subject.
