2004 sees the inaugural Jim Shepherd Award in recognition of services to the records management industry and support of the Records Management Association of Australasia.
Tower Software have a long history in supporting the RMAA since their humble beginnings in 1985 when they also became a corporate member. Their support has included purchasing exhibition stands at every National Convention, placing advertisements in every Informaa Quarterly, providing major and minor sponsorship for events at both Branch and National levels, providing speakers for RMAA events and actively raising the profile of the RMAA at their own events.
Through their products Tower Software has championed record keeping practices within organisations in Australia and overseas. They have been a leader in the development of records management software and have helped to ensure a competitive industry environment.
Tower’s annual event TUF has provided opportunities for records and information managers to discuss and debate both the application of the TRIM product and also record keeping issues generally.
The Jim Shepherd Awards Committee unanimously agreed that Tower Software where a most deserving recipient of the inaugural Jim Shepherd Award.
