Proper Records Management Is More than Just Software

At Gimmal, we spend a lot of time talking about all of the cool things our software can do - and for good reason. Modern records management software can do a lot to make it easier to govern content and execute defensible dispositions. But despite that, we should also remind our readers that there's no such thing as a "magic bullet" when it comes to business processes - there is no panacea that will ever replace proper planning, measured project execution, and realistic change management.

Implementation Is Everything

Recently, Gimmal Director of Services Karen Goode wrote a blog post in which she explored our project framework, and why we believe this kind of framework is an organization's best chance at conquering the chaos that frequently manifests during project implementation. She writes:

Allowing chaos to promulgate unchecked is a bigger investment than building an execution framework. Complex dynamic projects that are uncontrolled can quickly become a dark hole, an immeasurable mystery with dubious outcomes.

We recently hosted a webinar that examined these risks in more depth and described how the Gimmal Professional Services team can equip your organization with the tools and frameworks you need to ensure continuous success in any information management initiative.

Because Gimmal’s Professional Services team understands that software is only as good as the processes it is supporting, they will work with you to identify where you are today, where you would like to go, how best to get there and how to sustain your strategic vision.

In this webinar, Gimmal’s professional services team shared their processes for identifying organizations’ current state, goals, and strategy.

Gimmal is Revolutionizing the Electronic Management of Physical Records and Assets

Physical records management has always been tricky, especially as complex systems have grown up around it. As more of our business information is created and stored electronically, physical records tend to become increasingly siloed. Normally, organizations need a segregated, on-premises system, or manual process that is not well-integrated with the electronic side of the business. Custom legacy platforms have a tendency to hamper the growth of an organizations infrastructure, and are difficult to replace.
