Services Provider Certification Program

Most organizations today get their EDRMS (Electronic Document & Records Management System) solutions delivered not by software vendors, but by third-party ECM Services Providers. These are typically specialized consultancies aligned with an ECM platform from such vendors as HP, IBM, OpenText, or Microsoft. In the case of Microsoft services providers, they sometimes need to additionally align themselves with a recordkeeping software add-in product such as Collabware, Gimmal, RecordLion, or RecordPoint. An EDRMS project calls for highly specialized skills, knowledge, and experience.

As an ECM services provider, you can gain a powerful competitive edge by taking advanced EDRMS training from RIMtech, then you can offer your services as a certified RIMtech Provider. RIMtech offers two certification programs:

Certification for an individual (single) professional ECM services consultant.  

Certification for a consulting company (multiple consultants).  

Certification Requirements

To achieve certification, you must be fully trained on RIMtech’s EDRMS Implementation Methodology®, consisting of a total of 3 days (24 hours) of training covering the following three subject areas:

EDRMS. Deep technical and operational knowledge of the host ECM platform and its interactions with recordkeeping software, EDRMS information architecture, RBR (Rules-based Recordkeeping), and implementation methodology.

Project Management. Resource management and allocation, project planning, key performance metrics, project costing and scheduling.

Project Proposals. How to write sophisticated EDRMS product/solution proposals, project pricing, solution configuration, maximizing competitive advantage.

You must successfully complete all three modules to achieve certification.

Vendor Neutrality

As a vendor-neutral consultancy, RIMtech does not have any affiliation with, or preference towards, any ECM platform, or recordkeeping software offerings within the market. ECM platforms and recordkeeping offerings continually change within the marketplace. RIMtech’s EDRMS Implementation Methodology® is therefore independent of any ECM platform or recordkeeping software offering. Generally speaking, ECM services providers and consultants maintain various allegiances with ECM platforms and recordkeeping software vendors. These allegiances often shift with market conditions. RIMtech is agnostic to such allegiances – our goal is to help all ECM services consultants deliver effective EDRMS solutions, regardless of the technology deployed.
