At Copyrite, we understand that it can be difficult for Charities to access necessary resources due to limited funding, and can be even harder to make any drastic changes to existing or outdated systems and equipment to move with the times. The new General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is set to catch many flatfooted, as it will render Windows File Structure frameworks uncompliant, meaning that many will need to completely change the way they store sensitive information.
In order to help companies transition into a new, compliant document management file structure, we’ve launched Worldox, a completely cloud based, and 100% compliant Document and Email management system which will not only bring users in line with new regulations, but also help simplify the way you store and access your information.
We are offering a completely free data review with one of our local consultants, in order to highlight what in your existing system will need to be updated to comply with GDPR, and how we can help your charity. Furthermore, As part of our commitment to working with local charities and communities, we’re happy to include an Office Printer, absolutely FREE! All you pay for is the prints you use.
All of our printers come with a service and materials package, which are frequently much cheaper that looking after and supplying a device yourself, helping you save time and money, and getting your equipment back up and running as soon as possible.
