"The ForeMost/Panagon integrated solution allows users to seamlessly manage all their content with robust records management, archiving and disposal capabilities and to more effectively capture the knowledge within their organizations," said Russ Stalters, president of TrueArc(TM).
"RMC/Tricilities excel in developing solutions to help government agencies deliver compliant and complex records management systems to their various audiences, and we are pleased that they've chosen ForeMost as a key component in many of their successful projects."
"The integration with TrueArc(TM)'s ForeMost Enterprise product once again demonstrates how Panagon's enterprise content management platform delivers solutions that provide real benefits in terms of instant access to information," said Michael W. Harris, senior vice president, Products and Strategy, at FileNET.
"Both government and commercial customers will realize the value of using a content management solution that meets the most stringent set of records management criteria to manage their mission-critical information."
"As we work with federal, state and local government agencies to design effective electronic records management solutions, we must ensure that the technologies we implement are DoD certified," explained Charles A. Colon, III, vice president of operations for RMC.
"Panagon and ForeMost are robust products that offer many benefits to our customers, so we were proud to assist FileNET and TrueArc(TM) in this certification process to ensure our joint solutions meet the needs of our customers and comply with the strict DoD standards."
