iWorkplace IPC supports you to achieve greater understanding of the risks posed to your organisation. Sophisticated retention & disposal (R&D) of records and the option to leverage E5 capabilities to systematically protect sensitive & private content.

Deletion monitoring across SharePoint, Teams & OneDrive provide confidence and transparency.


How these capabilities are delivered

Apps & Frameworks that support this functionality

Practical Compliance. Information managers can set up retention and disposal rules that span document libraries.


It also provides:

Adoption monitoring and the ability for the Information Manager to define customer views e.g. files added in the last week.

Update actions including bulk copy or move files as well as update metadata and retention labels.

Use native M365 retention labels to protect files from day 1 then dispose of them to a schedule

Smart Labels automates this at scale and with tricky use cases that hard to administer out of the box with E3 or E5

Alongside our provisioning Apps this allows R&D for

a) single rule per library or folder

b) more than one rule per library

c) event driven rules (e.g. keep contracts for two years after they expire)


Includes Smart Records views so you can access

a) what files are being created by whom

b) what files are due to be deleted soon

c) and more metadata based queries

Your large files and digital workplace, together. 


Smart Storage allows you to access and manage these files from within SharePoint Online or Microsoft Teams while storing them in the most appropriate system.

Take control of OneDrive use before it becomes your biggest information management headache. 


This solution includes:

Tool to view & move OneDrive files, as well as determining where they are excessive.

BI dashboard that shows, per person, their use of OneDrive versus ECM workspaces.

Apps that support this functionality

To do list shadow

Smart Provisioning

Automated site & Team builds, including self-service. It enables workspaces to be created and updated based on settings in a SharePoint list. 


New site collections or teams are created based on the specified template and additional (conditional) actions can be applied either during or after site creation.

Metadata tag shadow

Smart Metadata

Autoclassification.  The App allows metadata to be automatically set based on the name of a folder or subfolder a file is stored in.


In conjunction with the Smart Labels App, this allows retention labels to be automatically set at folder level, so a library can have two or more retention rules being applied automatically.

File box shadow

Smart Case Files

Practical case file management. Allows local coordinators to create and update case files without needing administrator rights.


This includes managing the lifecycle of a case file including those with complex permissions and stages they go through. It can also trigger retention and disposal once a case file is closed.
