RUTHERFORD, N.J., June 21, 2005 â AXS-One Inc. (AMEX: AXO), a leading provider of high-performance records compliance management software solutions today announced the free AXS-One Electronic Records Compliance Information Center (ERCIC). ERCIC provides an important single destination for anyone in the fields of IT, Legal, Compliance, Records Management, and the media, attempting to navigate through the complex and ever changing issues of electronic records management. The site provides comprehensive data, research and commentary on records compliance management and its implications for IT, regulatory and corporate compliance, corporate governance, legal discovery and privacy.
"Electronic records management is often seen through a very narrow lens: organizations tend to view it as the responsibility of one department to meet a few of their requirements or regulations," said Bill Lyons, CEO, AXS-One. "The reality is that successful electronic records management is a much broader issue that affects the entire organization and requires executive sponsorship to be successfully implemented and enforced. By utilizing the information freely available in ERCIC, organizations will be better informed to implement successful records compliance management strategies and systems based on sound advice and best practices."
ERCIC includes comprehensive cross-functional information on topics such as Records Compliance Management (RCM), E-mail and Instant Messaging Management, e-Discovery, Data Retention and U.S. Regulations segmented by industry, as well as links to other public information sources. In addition, it will feature archived presentations, case studies, FAQs, White Papers, interviews, tips, checklists and webinar transcripts from AXS-One. Information is presented in an easily accessible format, and includes contributions from analysts, media, the government and other constituencies. And as the regulatory, legal, technology and business environment affecting electronic records management evolves, so will ERCIC.
