Selects content and document management solution to keep papers accurate, accessible
Herndon, VA — August 21, 2003 — Infodata Systems, an enterprise content management solutions company, today announced it has been awarded a contract by The American National Red Cross to implement a content and document management system (CDMS) at The Red Cross Biomedical Services Headquarters in Washington D.C. and the National Testing and Reference Laboratory (NTRL) in Charlotte, N.C.
Infodata said it would establish a content management services layer within the CDMS environment to deliver content review and content assembly and publishing solutions for The Red Cross.
The American Red Cross Biomedical Services (ARCBS), which is responsible for collecting, manufacturing and distributing the blood supply for much of the United States, must ensure that their policy and procedural documents are accurate and complete, and that they are maintained and accessed in a controlled environment.
Infodata said the CDMS environment for The Red Cross will provide content and document management functionality for a controlled set of documents.
The provider added that it would use several third-party applications during the implementation, as well as its own AnnoDoc Content Review product, to deliver solutions for reviewing and approving content, automated eXtensibe Markup Language (XML) tagged content for retrieving and repurposing information, and automated versioning and security to control distribution both for regulated and non-regulated documents.
"Due to the critical nature of the The Red Cross mission and regulatory environment, an effective content and document management system is tremendously important to ensure that our policy and procedural documents are effectively created, reviewed, utilized and securely maintained," said Carol Genseal, senior director, Support Operations, The Red Cross. "Infodata was selected because of their long history in delivering effective content management solutions."
