TSG and G4S have formed a strategic partnership to deliver technology-led services to their clients to address ongoing governance requirements following the Covid-19 crisis.
The partnership is in direct response to requests received from clients to be able to access documents remotely during and after the coronavirus pandemic.
Among the many operational challenges caused by the pandemic, businesses need to allow staff access to physical documents and files while undertaking their business-as-usual activities.
By combining the G4S archive and data storage solutions and TSG’s document and data management expertise, clients are now able to manage their ongoing governance, risk and compliance (GRC) needs along with providing easy-to-use, cost-effective solutions.
GRC is a crucial element for businesses to manage across the Channel Islands. The combined services offered by both businesses are GDPR ‘ready,’ providing businesses with the options they need while working with physical documents during the ‘new’ normal.
‘Scan on Request’ and ‘Offsite back-scanning’ services have been set up in a purpose-built ‘Covid ready’ scanning bureau to minimise the risk of Covid cross-contamination. To meet the need for remote document access, documents are available via several formats:
A secure online portal providing credential-based access.
Electronic copies of the documents transferred via secured encrypted media.
A secure API interface, enabling the digital transfer of data to any in-house document management solution.
Andy Delaney, chief executive of TSG, said: ‘This partnership is an exciting opportunity and deepening of a relationship between our two businesses that has spanned many years.
‘We both have clear strategic goals to grow and this will be made possible by developing joined-up services that enable our clients to benefit from best-of-breed and compliant solutions.’
Simon Haywood, of G4S, added: ‘We have enjoyed working with TSG for more than nine years. Our combined, complementary specialities will provide our valued clients with enhanced options for secure electronic information storage and retrieval and we are looking forward to delivering these solutions together.’
