Bury St Edmunds, UK, October 23, 2017 – EASY SOFTWARE UK, Europe’s foremost supplier of document management solutions, has a new solution to help UK organisations prepare for imminent data privacy changes in the shape of local implementation of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The solution is from EASY’s German sister company Otris Software AG and allows the content management leader to resell fully-featured data compliance management software Otris privacy ®.

The longstanding co-operation will be further aligned with key EASY channel partner Fujitsu, a market leader in the document and data capture solutions arena.

Otris privacy for GDPR software solution has been enhanced for over a decade to address the stringent requirements of the incumbent German data protection law BDSG (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz Federal Data Protection Act), and has been successfully deployed by over 500 organisations within this area of jurisdiction.

UK Furniture Leader Fishpools Begins Digital Transformation With EASY

Bury St Edmunds, UK – September 11, 2017 – EASY Software UK is delighted to announce retailer Fishpools Furniture, the largest quality furniture store in the South East of England, has realised multiple digital efficiencies through use of its award-winning product suite.

Up until 2014, Fishpools stored all financial information and correspondence manually, which meant time had to be spent in paper-heavy business processes and workflows. The process had an effect on its ability to deal with queries, says the company.

Scanning and storage of Fishpools’ financial documentation with EASY’s technology has proven to be the answer, as Fishpools processes over 800 sales orders and delivery notes and around 400 invoices per week.

This now means team members are much more productive, as client, supplier and order information is far easier to store and search digitally as opposed to searching through filing cabinets.

Plus, it’s also hugely valuable for Fishpools to have all relevant sales, purchasing and financial information always available from an efficiency and regulatory point of view, as well as for immediate customer support and problem resolution.

Another benefit is increased physical space at the company, freed up by the ability to remove physical storage, says the company.

For Alice Norris, Fishpools’ Operations Director, “We got a return on investment from EASY, absolutely.

“We will continue to use EASY as the move to digital clearly benefits our business, and we expect our use of it to grow with us.”

EASY SOFTWARE UK Wins Important ‘GDPR Ready’ Recognition At 2017 Storage Awards

EASY wins key industry recognition for the contribution of its GDPR solution from sister EASY company otris software AG at the ‘Storries’

Bury St Edmunds, UK, July 6, 2017 – EASY SOFTWARE UK, Europe’s leading supplier of document management solutions, has secured important sector acknowledgement of its solution for the imminent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) pan-European data compliance standard.

As a result, customers who have not yet commenced their GDPR journey will have confidence that EASY can help them meet the May 2018 deadline for the regulation, which brings in a tough new sanction regime replacing the UK Data Protection Act (DPA).

EASY came top in the ‘GDPR Ready’ category at the June 2017 Storage Awards with its GDPR solution otris privacy from sister EASY company, otris software AG.

otris privacy is a support tool for helping organisations get ready for GDPR, offering proof of process and a way to show auditors what’s being achieved, says the company.

Howard Frear, Director of Sales and Marketing at EASY, commented: “GDPR is a huge issue for any organisation working with customer data.

“To help we offer a solution, successfully used for equally rigorous data protection laws by 400 German and Austrian organisations, to document and project manage data governance to address GDPR, which has to be prepared for.”

The Storage Awards, now in their 14th year, includes 30 categories voted for by thousands of Storage Magazine readers to reward the outstanding products, services and people in the industry.

“This brings EASY’s total number of Storries to twelve over eleven years, which is very gratifying but even more so for such an important area as GDPR,” Frear concludes.

The 2017 Storage Awards were held in London’s Grand Connaught Rooms in London’s Covent Garden on June 15, and more information about the awards can be found at http://www.networkcomputing.co.uk/ncawards/?page=winners2017 @STMagAndAwards #Storries.

EASY Coverage In IT For CEOs

EASY SOFTWARE UK’s Sales & Marketing Director Howard Frear has written a very informative piece for key industry publication IT for CEOs on the on-going relevance of Information Lifecycle Management (ILM).

The classical discipline is not a something that gets much of an airing these days of cloud-based business, according to Howard.

That’s a problem – as its key principles of properly classifying, managing and storing information over time remain relevant in any environment, even one as seemingly rich in computing resources as ours: perhaps even more so.

Analysts are backing Howard’s conviction that ILM still matters – with Gartner telling CIOs recently it’s “an approach to data and storage management that recognises that the value of information changes over time and that it must be managed accordingly… ILM seeks to classify data according to its business value and establish policies to migrate and store data on the appropriate storage tier and, ultimately, remove it altogether”.

That matters, as the more digitally connected we become, the more data we spawn. And where is all that data being stored? Largely in the cloud, since cloud storage costs are decreasing by 20% annually.

While on the face of it cloud appears an inexpensive and ‘infinite’ archiving solution, in reality, cautions the piece, if we ignore our data obligations under law, we lose accountability, control – and face real compliance and governance risk, especially when it comes to being able to definitively prove old business information’s been deleted for good.
