Viewpointe launches content assessment for info governance

 Permanent link
NEW YORK and CHICAGO (9/26/12)--Viewpointe, a provider of electronic content management and image exchange solutions and services, has launched a content assessment service.

The service complements the company's hosted information governance platform OnPointe and is designed to help organizations understand their information governance readiness based on industry best practices and standards. Information governance is how credit unions meet regulatory, legal and business requirements for data access, monitoring, retention management and defensible destruction of information via automated enforcement of governance policies.

This blend of software, services and expertise is designed to help organizations jump-start their information governance programs and provide a better understanding of records management maturity and information governance readiness. Equipped with a systematic way to explore, analyze and validate the business value of the unstructured business content from across its enterprise, an organization also can gain a better understanding of its information landscape, Viewpointe said.

Through Viewpointe's content-assessment services, organizations are provided with insight into what information to trust and leverage, and areas of duplication and risk. Targets for cost reduction help organizations make fact-based decisions that affect strategic goals.

The companies designed a new graphic element symbolizing the power of TMG/CO-OP strategic alliance. The seal symbolizes the new future in payment innovations, according to CEOs Shazia Manus of TMG and Stan Hollen of CO-OP.

"Everyone who sees this seal will be reminded of the power of the TMG/CO-OP alliance, which expands each of our competencies for the development of best-in-class payment technologies and superior customer experiences," said Manus.

Patterned after a vintage "seal of approval," the graphic will be introduced to the credit union industry in display ads scheduled to publish this week. The element will reappear on a smaller scale in the companies' individual ads and in print and digital marketing materials.

Some initiatives the two companies are working to bring to the market include:

  • Flexible payment solutions to fit the needs of more than 7,300 credit unions;
  • Launch of innovative mobile banking and payments products;
  • After-hours cardholder support services;
  • Integrated reporting and data analytics tools;
  • Improvements to fraud prevention strategies;
  • Europay-MasteCard-Visa chip card technologies;
  • Development of full-service card portfolio consulting services;
  • Data aggregation and integration of Springboard, a proprietary technology interface; and
  • Faster, more efficient way to serve cardholders.
 

TMG provides customized, technology-driven card processing and payment solutions for credit unions and community-based financial institutions across North America.

CO-OP Financial Services connects credit union members to their accounts through network, payment processing, e-commerce, shared branching and call center services.
