Canadian Business Awards 2023

The Information Professionals (InfoPros) has provided guidance on information governance and compliance programs, policies, procedures, and systems for more than 30 years. We speak to its President, Nina Carter, to find out more as it is recognised in the Canadian Business Awards 2023. Information has a purpose which is fundamental to the effective delivery of any public service. However, for everything to be legally above board, information governance and compliance needs to be applied. Strategies for information within organizations balance the risk that information presents with the value that it can provide. The Information Professionals (InfoPros) was founded in 1988 by Nina Carter, who has over 25 years of experience in Information management (IM) and information technology (IT). Nina shares, “The InfoPros has been dedicated to providing unbiased, non-prejudiced, observation-driven advisory services pertaining to information governance and compliance programs, policies, procedures, and systems.” The company has master-level knowledge of municipal document and records management trends, legislation, regulations, operations, resourcing, and related technology solutions to which they provide for municipalities and other governmental organizations. Nina says, “Year-over-year, our repeat success with our Municipal customers has provided the foundation for InfoPros being recognized throughout North America as industry leaders in records management strategy for government.” InfoPros helps companies with the organization of their data with the relevant sections, to manage information by how it is stored, archived, shared, and disposed of following legal and regulatory compliance. It does this through its “extensive experience in the decision-making process of selecting various technology platforms.” It is equipped with valuable experience to be able to support its clients to a high-quality level. Not only does InfoPros understand the root cause of issues, but it knows how to solve them. Nina explains, “The failure of records management implementations can, for the most part, be tracked back to issues and gaps in the RFP/RFQ/RFX development and vendor selection process.” By utilising its experience and heightened skillset, InfoPros can positively alter the trajectory of its clients’ business strategy. Its secondary service is dedicated to “the development of procurementrelated records management documentation focusing on Requests for Proposals (RFPs), Requests for Quotations (RFQs), and all other Request for Xs (RFX) arrangements including Master Supply Arrangements (MSAs) and Master Standing Offers (MSOs)”, says Nina. “Our mission is to deliver exceptional consulting services related to the development of best practice records management programs that support our client’s requirements to manage records, from creation through to disposition.” InfoPros prides itself in having helped hundreds of clients to help improve the efficiency of their organizations through “strategic plans around the definition and deployment of records management solutions and their associated functional and technical requirements.” The company’s dedication to offer quality and effective service doesn’t go unrecognised. It has now been acknowledged in the Canadian Business Awards 2023 with Best Information Management Advisory Firm 2023, and we are sure to see it flourish for the next 30 years – and beyond!
