Export Retention Schedules to your Content Management system
Retention Manager enables you to keep your electronic content systems synchronized with your records retention policies.
Retention Manager keeps your CMS compliant
Content Management Systems (CMS) provide many records indexing and management functions, while associated Electronic Records Management (ERM) software provides the capability of applying records retention rules to e-records and destroying them according to procedures defined in the records retention schedule.
CMS systems require legally-defensible retention schedules to be integrated in order to make the records retention functionality compliant and resilient to high-cost discovery risk.
Retention Manager allows you to export your retention schedule along with record series descriptions and retention periods to most major content management systems.
Information Requirements Clearinghouse (IRCH) has a strong working relationship with multiple major software companies who sell products that manage data as electronic records across the enterprise.
Electronic Content Management (ECM) systems provide much of the key records indexing and management functions, while associated Electronic Records Management (ERM) software provides the capability of applying records retention rules to e-records and destroying them according to procedures defined in the records retention schedule. All of these large vendor ECM products require defensible records retention schedules to be programmed into the ECM system in order to make their records retention functionality more compliant for their customers.
IRCH’s Retention Manager provides the legal requirements, i.e., the basis for legal defensibility of Enterprise retention schedules. As such, Retention Manager is highly complementary to these ECM products, greatly enhancing the system’s appeal to potential customers, and empowers these customers to use the ECM system to more effectively manage records risk in the enterprise.
IRCH currently offers a product compatibility certification program for ECM products. The following companies or their agents have compatibility certification with Retention Manger:

High performance, low maintenance. That is why I rely on the Retention Manager™ program to develop records retention schedules for clients. The prime feature is the program’s structure to select, organize and apply record keeping regulations through legal groups to broad categories of records, or retention rules.
These rules are where legal requirements and business needs are key elements of the retention decision process. Rules are easy to keep current, they promote consistencies throughout the organization and they document defensible retention decisions.
