Iron Mountain partners with ELO

Iron Mountain Australia has announced a strategic partnership with ELO Digital Office Australia  to  offer additional hosted  information management services within Australia.

Iron Mountain is a global provider of electronic and physical information management services. It is offering this new platform for Australian organisations concerned about data sovereignty and hosted service performance.

Known as Iron Mountain Connect powered by ELO, the hosted offering will see data reside in Iron Mount’s Australian data centres.

It will provide compliance with the Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS) standard, a requirement for Australian government agencies, as well as PCI-DSS compliance.

Organisations will be able to utilise the platform in combination with Iron Mountain Australia's document capture, data extraction and validation services to now include electronic active file management and workflow, archive storage and secure destruction.

“We want to provide an easy to use, affordable and mature hosted document management platform that can grow with a businesses’ tactical needs, provide a scalable low cost of entry and ownership, and yet provide a strategically valuable growth strategy”, said Daniel Warren-Smith, GM Document Management Services.

“Our vision is that knowledge workers will have a one-stop portal for the management of all information assets – across both physical and digital media – as a cost effective hosted shared service

ELO will go to market with the Iron Mountain hosted platform in addition to its traditional on-premise solutions.

“Partnering with Iron Mountain will deliver great values to customers in Australia and Asia” added Rainer Krause, ELO’s Australian Managing Director.

”The combined skills of both ELO and Iron Mountain allow companies of all sizes and all industries to benefit from the comprehensive offering. Whether hosted, on-site or in the cloud, the scalability of ELO will provide a future proof and compliant solution for current and future customers. For us at ELO this partnership represents a significant move forward and adds another great company to the ELO partner network.”
