Colligo Contributor included as email management component of innovative GimmalSoft Compliance Suite

Vancouver, BC and Houston, TX – March 17, 2011 – Colligo Networks and GimmalSoft today announced that they have entered into a partnership agreement to integrate Colligo’s industry-leading email management software, Colligo Contributor, into the GimmalSoft Compliance Suite for SharePoint 2010. The GimmalSoft Compliance Suite is a native SharePoint 2010 records management solution for which GimmalSoft is currently undergoing DoD 5015.2 certification testing. The partnership enables GimmalSoft to offer Colligo’s email management software as part of their innovative SharePoint-based records management solution, targeted at both federal government and commercial customers requiring a DoD 5015.2-compliant platform.

DoD 5015.2 is the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) Design Criteria Standard for Electronic Records Management Software Applications. Endorsed by government agencies worldwide, including the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), its standards have been used as a basis for global records management benchmarks, including the United Kingdom’s Public Record Office (PRO) standard and the European Union’s Model Requirements (MoReq). Following its adoption by the public sector, many private sector businesses now routinely use the certification as the “Gold Standard” for records management solutions.

“To fulfill the integration requirements for true email records management functionality required by DoD 5015.2 in a native SharePoint application, we naturally turned to Colligo,” says Brad Teed, VP & CTO of GimmalSoft. “Colligo Contributor is recognized as the “best of breed” solution for integrating Microsoft Outlook and SharePoint, so they were the obvious choice to provide this critical component. By extending the functionality of SharePoint 2010 with email management and other requirements for DoD 5015.2 certification, we are offering both government and commercial customers a transformative opportunity to consolidate systems and improve information management on an enterprise-wide scale.”

“We are very pleased to be chosen by GimmalSoft as an integral part of the GimmalSoft Compliance Suite,” says Bill England, Director of Strategic Alliances at Colligo. “There is a clear need in the market for a DoD-certified solution, both for government and for companies who want the validation that this certification provides in order to move forward with deploying a native SharePoint 2010 solution for records management. Email records management is not only a critical requirement for DoD 5015.2 certification, but a capability that organizations need for a successful and comprehensive SharePoint 2010 deployment.”

Colligo and GimmalSoft will be demonstrating the solution at the upcoming AIIM/Info360 conference in Washington, DC, from March 22nd to 24th.
