Simplify your public records process now

Modernize your electronic records management and reduce the time and cost of responding to public records requests.

Smarsh for Government

Public sector organizations need to capture and store electronic communications of all types. It’s no longer simply email— official records now include SMS/text messages, social media and instant messages.

As state sunshine laws and federal oversight guidance evolve to include modern communication channels, it’s imperative for organizations to simplify the capture and search of information so they can rapidly respond to requests by using a single, comprehensive solution.

Failure to maintain and secure complete and accurate records leaves agencies vulnerable to fines, legal and reputational risks. Watch this brief video on managing electronic communications records and response.
