TRIM Context electronic document and records management (EDRM) system to improve information management

Wokingham, Berkshire – 22 October 2007 – TOWER Software, the leading enterprise content management company, today announces that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is to improve its information management practices with the deployment of a TRIM Context EDRM system to 3,400 users across 28 office locations. LogicaCMG will incorporate this implementation as part of its 10 year outsourcing agreement with HSE and will simultaneously undertake an enterprise migration to Microsoft Office 2003 and Outlook that will encompass all text-based files, including e-mail.

Richard Lewis, Head of Information Management at HSE explains: “Whilst we are very mindful of the e-government agendas and compliance requirements, this EDRM project has been driven by a desire to manage information better across HSE. The rising popularity of desktop tools has led us further away from print and a traditional records management culture. As a consequence, information silos had started to appear. TRIM Context will allow users to find the information they’re looking for far more easily and derive intelligence from it. It will also help us handle the large volume of incoming Freedom of Information (FoI) enquiries we receive.”

Juanita Taliadorous, Managing Director of LogicaCMG’s public sector business, comments: “LogicaCMG’s partnership with HSE goes beyond the provision of IT and IS services and focuses on delivering business change through more effective sharing and management of health and safety risk and regulatory information. Having greater access and more readily accessible information will be key in helping HSE achieve the goals of the REFIT – Refresh IT programme.”

Paul Brenchley, Vice President for TOWER Software in EMEA adds: ”TRIM Context was selected following a full comparison against other products as well as the Public Records Office (PRO) standards. According to the HSE, it was considered the most easy to use for the staff and better at handling records.”

The system is already in use by around 3000 users at HSE’s headquarters locations in London and Bootle, and in field offices across the UK. Completion of roll-out to 29 sites in total is scheduled for November 2007.

About The Health & Safety Executive

The Health and Safety Commission is responsible for health and safety regulation in Great Britain. The Health and Safety Executive and local government are the enforcing authorities who work in support of the Commission. Our mission is to protect people's health and safety by ensuring risks in the changing workplace are properly controlled. We look after health and safety in nuclear installations and mines, factories, farms, hospitals and schools, offshore gas and oil installations, the safety of the gas grid and the movement of dangerous goods and substances, and many other aspects of the protection both of workers and the public. Local authorities are responsible to HSE for enforcement in offices, shops and other parts of the services sector. The HSE is sponsored by the Department of Work and Pensions and is ultimately accountable to Parliamentary Under Secretary (for Work and Pensions) (Lords) Lord McKenzie of Luton.
