Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Solutions

DCS can closely examine your records management system for compliance gapsIt is vital that businesses follow correct procedures and best practice guidelines to ensure they operate in accordance with regulations, laws, best practice standards and contract obligations.

Implementing compliance procedures made easy

The need to implement properly managed compliance procedures involves a considerable cost but where compliance procedures are not consistently adhered to, organisations become vulnerable to the risk of fines and costs of non-compliance increase.

DCS can analyse your current records management system and determine the gaps between existing systems and any regulations or standards you need to comply with.  We have helped many public and private sector organisations comply with industry regulations like Data Protection Act, Sarbanes Oxley, ISO 15489 and FSA regulations by enforcing procedures and policies through our document management solutions and reduce the cost of compliance. 

How it works

Business processes generate high volumes of document records which need to be retained for several years and DCS provides a solution which tracks records effectively through their lifecycle, enables secure storage and rapid retrieval and manages retention requirements, minimising business risk.
