Comprehensive Inventory

The records inventory is the central component of iGMapware. Typically, designated employees from each department populate it to create a knowledgebase for true information management.


Numerous data fields give you in-depth knowledge about the electronic and hard copy assets you maintain internally and with third parties.

Library of Baseline Records

Created by our information governance experts, these extensive industry-specific libraries contain  the record titles and descriptions that most businesses are likely to have.   


Baseline records are a quick and efficient way to build your database, identify inventory gaps and reduce duplicate records.


In order to quick start the inventory process one of our industry baseline libraries simplifies the process so that it takes only hours for each group to add populate their inventories.

Record and Data Mapping

This module lets you associate each category of information in your inventory to a retention rule. It gives you the flexibility to make changes to one rule without impacting the whole schedule.

Here you’ll also find workflow capabilities that make it easy to see where you have gaps between operational needs and your retention rules.

Workflow and Audit Trail

When you turn on workflow, iGMapware automatically tracks all changes made from updates to your inventory, the mapping of citations to rules, the mapping of records to rules, to the deletion of records and retention rules.

This extensive audit trail lets you track all changes made to your information inventory, citations and retention rules.
