“Our legal and compliance groups wanted to be sure that we had a good compliance solution in hand before we even talked about implementing Chatter.”
Standard Life Investments already uses Smarsh for the capture, preservation, search, supervision and production of email, instant messaging, and Bloomberg messaging. When their IT consultant and the compliance team looked at the implications of Chatter, involving Smarsh meant Standard Life Investments could add Chatter’s capabilities without adding additional complexity to existing archiving processes.
