Best practice records management starts here

Modern Records Management is more than the ability to capture a record from a range of different sources and keep them safe and authentic. It includes the ability for end users to leverage those records to either respond faster, more efficient, or better informed, based on the trustworthiness of the record.

Enterprise Content Management

Effortless information management, with robust record management and powerful process automation

Information Everywhere

Maximise the value of your corporate knowledge by providing end-users with access to relevant information, regardless of the application they are working in or the location they are working from. Use this information to make better, more informed decisions.

Governance Everywhere

Ensure records compliance across all information sources (digital or physical) and ensure governance policies and procedures do not burden your end-users, allowing them to get the job done efficiently.

Sustainable Transformation

Create institutional memory to transform your business. Ensure you have a complete picture of your information, regardless of the application it was created in. Adopt a platform that caters to your information requirements now while being agile to accommodate to future needs.

Cloud First

Future proof your business with a cloud-delivered Modern Information Management platform providing continuous innovation in new features, integrations and end-user productivity.


Extend governance through your organisation

Whether you use Objective Nexus, Objective ECM or Content Manager, information governance is assured throughout your broader information ecosystem, with solutions that enable business users to go about their day-to-day work practices.

Secure external file sharing

Securely share documents with external parties, with governance extended from your EDRMS

Maintain a single source of truth

Two-way synchronisation with your existing file plan keeps everyone up to date. Files received are automatically filed in the correct location, ensuring metadata is always accurate.

You are in charge of who does what

Existing permissions, classifications, shares and caveats from the EDRMS are applied automatically (Objective ECM or Micro Focus Content Manager). You can then control the abilities of each user invited to a Workspace: download, upload, edit, share, add comments and invite participants.

For their eyes only

When your documents are extremely sensitive, set a Workspace to be preview only. Documents can be shared, but never downloaded. Every page is watermarked with the participant's email address and time stamped.

Comply with your records management obligations

Transactional audit reports can be produced at any time, providing the granularity that is required by records and information managers.

Making governance easy
