Leeds, (PressExposure) May 17, 2012 -- Collaboris, a SharePoint development company, has announced the latest release of their compliance management tool, DocRead. An add-on for Microsoft SharePoint allowing policies to be distributed to groups of employees within seconds, has just made a compliance officers' job much easier.
"This latest release not only improves the core product, but now also provides support for both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 Foundation," said Hugo Esperanca, Development Lead and Director. "The demand for 2007 has been amazing considering it debuted over 5 years ago, it proves that there's still a lot of big corporates still using it". Hugo also goes on to say, "If we didn't support 2007 and also 2010 Foundation we'd be saying good bye to a significant amount of sales, we simply had to make it work."
DocRead's main selling point is that it extends SharePoint in a way that makes using it feel it has always been part of the product. Employees can read and confirm they understand the contents of a document in just 3-clicks, making the overall process of staying compliant as painless as possible.
Mark Jones, Director, comments "SharePoint's explosion in popularity since 2007 has been staggering. It's now widely used in most organisations to allow staff to collaborate on documents, share information and is even taking the role of Facebook for the Enterprise". As CIO's move to centralise their files onto SharePoint, it makes sense to provide a compliance layer over the top of those documents without having to load them into another compliance management system. Mark also comments "SharePoint has most of what you need to tackle compliance, DocRead just adds the plumbing to make it happen".
With an integrated reporting tool, allowing publishers to track employees who have and haven't read key documents, DocRead could yet prove to be the medicine that organisations need to cure their regulatory compliance headaches.
