Houston, TX – February 15, 2021 – Gimmal LLC. a Houston-based provider of information governance and compliance software, has just announced the release of Drop Zones for Microsoft Teams for compliant collaboration. With this solution, Microsoft Teams users have the ability to automatically apply metadata and properly store documents in SharePoint right from the Microsoft Teams interface.

With a simple drag and drop method, the user can drop documents in a designated zone on Microsoft Teams to ease the burden of manual tagging and ensure documents are managed according to policies. While Drop Zones are not a new capability for the 18-year-old information governance company, the Microsoft Teams integration has been made available to accommodate many newly dispersed workforces who are utilizing Microsoft Teams for collaboration.

“With so many organizations implementing Microsoft Teams due to the global pandemic, we wanted to deliver an elegant solution that would allow Microsoft Teams users to enable information governance from within Microsoft Teams: by putting their documents in the right place, with the right metadata, whilst enabling application of records lifecycle when used with the Gimmal Records platform,” says Patrick Wong, Vice President of Product Management at Gimmal.

This news comes in the wake of many recent initiatives and accomplishments of the company, including:

  • The acquisition of migration software company, ECM Wise
  • The acquisition of physical records software company, Infolinx
  • The achieved Preferred Partner status for Microsoft’s Content Services Program
