KOMpliance software solutions allow manufacturing and retail companies to meet their regulatory requirements for securely storing records. Retail businesses need to store and protect the privacy of large amounts of customer account data. Manufacturers are required to retain records related to plant and equipment maintenance as well as the production of goods, pharmaceuticals, and food stuffs. In some cases manufacturers also need to document and retain records of sources of raw materials. Both retail businesses and manufacturers must securely store large amounts of records from a variety of ECM, ERP, HR, EMail and collaboration applications, while protecting data privacy and storing records for the life of their retention periods.
