BEP Systems Helps Wales & West Utilities Implement an Enterprise Content Management Solution

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 15 March 2012

In April 2011, BEP Systems began working with Wales & West Utilities (WWU), the gas distribution company covering Wales and the South West, to support the companys deployment of its Extended ECM platform from Open Text. WWU was seeking to enhance the management and control of their corporate and operational documentation, whilst also providing an archiving solution to support their extensive use of SAP. BEPs role was to design the filing plan for the system (informing the configuration work being undertaken by WIPRO, the systems integrator for the project) and define the information governance policies for the implementation.


Via a series of meetings and workshops, BEP engaged with staff across the business, including Asset Management, Operations, Business and Customer Services, HR & Training, Finance, IT, Procurement and Logistics. During these discussions a configuration plan was developed covering filing structures, metadata, access control and retention considerations. Simultaneous to this BEP undertook legal research and engaged with the Legal and Internal Audit teams to confirm corporate records retention rules and processes.


In November 2011, BEP provided WWU with a full Report on designing the filing system for all business areas, enabling a consistent use of business rules and rapid configuration phase. Additionally BEP created a Policy and accompanying Procedures documents for Information and Records Management. As well as containing the Records Retention Schedule, this included policy statements, processes and guidelines for managing both physical and digital content throughout their lifecycle from creation to disposition or long term preservation. This ensured that the ECM implementation was supported by suitable governance and that best practice in record keeping using the new platform would be embedded into business operations.
