AvePoint has successfully wrapped up our inaugural Records Roadshow across four cities in Australia. 

The dynamic Records duo Alyssa BlackburnInformation Management Director, and Paul OlenickProduct Strategy Director, traveled to Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane to meet with customers and record managers to discuss “How to Develop Your Information Management Strategy for SharePoint and Office365.”

Since launching in 2016, AvePoint Records solutions have continued to make noise in the market and earn a reputation as “the bridge” between Record Managers and SharePoint.   

AvePoint Records can be deployed on-premises or in Azure, giving customers flexibility in their preferred deployment method. 

Alyssa and Paul highlighted the common challenges for Record Information Management (RIM) in SharePoint, Office 365 and hybrid environments, and explained how AvePoint Record solutions can help address those concerns and simplify the RIM process for highly regulated-industries and organizations. 

Agenda presented by Alyssa and Paul

 Top 3 Takeaways from the Presentation 

  1. Microsoft has made great strides in records management with the introduction of labels, AI and more. 
  2. Organizations must perform a gap analysis of any tool (including Office 365) to make sure it meets their minimum requirements and unique specifications. 
  3. AvePoint can help streamline the RIM process with an intuitive, single-pane-of-glass interface that features built-in reporting and auditing, tools that improve information quality for users, and controls that strengthen compliance for privacy, security and records teams. 

The feedback we received from customers was overwhelmingly positive.  “My personal experience with the information sessions run by AvePoint is that I walk away with an expanded knowledge of the subject in question, and the session on records and information management for SharePoint and Office 365 was no exception. Yes, there was a sales component, but in context.” said Rob Milne, SharePoint Online Intranet Project Manager at Fair Work Commission.

Rob also found the networking opportunity beneficial, stating “Equally valuable is the networking with other IT professionals and the ability to build & expand professional relationships. Keep up the good work. I can also recommend O365 Saturdays,  which AvePoint is an active sponsor of.”

As part of the presentation, Alyssa did a live demo on how to use AvePoint Cloud Records to manage the content life cycle in SharePoint and Office 365.  If you are interested in seeing a demo or want a copy of the slide deck presented, please contact us here.

Due to popular demand we are looking to host this event in Canberra and Perth, so stay tuned!
