Information security, legal, human resource, and compliance teams are inundated with requests to review new customer or vendor contracts, or to provide official documentation and attestations about security vulnerabilities, disaster recovery and continuity capabilities, SIG questionnaire responses, and more. These requests are often sent via email and lack an audit trail or approval capabilities.

The Archer Documentation Request Tracking app-pack provides an automated governance process for capturing and approving requests for documentation. Internal teams can request official documentation or legal review for internal teams, customers, or vendors. The app-pack captures requestor contact information and request priority, and documents the impacted business units, process, applications, products, and services. Upon request approval, the documentation is shared by the approver or a subject matter expert. Finally, the app-pack helps the organization measure and manage expected delivery and service level agreement timeframes.

With Archer, organizations can establish a consistent process for managing and approving documentation requests, automatically generate reoccurring documentation requests, reuse past documentation, track and improve request response time, keep an audit trail for all requests, and notify requestors when new documentation is available.
