Benefits of Using RIAMS: Uploading Content

10th December 2018 RIAMS

In this week’s edition of the ‘Benefits of using RIAMS’ series, we are focusing on how you can upload your own content to RIAMS and discussing, with a case study, why some councils choose to make great use of this feature.

Content can be uploaded to RIAMS by a senior user. File types that can be uploaded include URL links and document formats (up to a file size of 25mb) including Word, Excel, PDF, PPT, JPG, PNG, TIF, RTF, TXT, WMV, SWF/FLV, MPEG and MOV files.

There is a quick refresher at the bottom of this news item covering how to add documents and links to RIAMS.

We spoke to Shropshire Council about uploading content to RIAMS, why they use this feature and how it’s helped them. This is what they had to say.

“We have been uploading documents to RIAMS Libraries for over a year, almost since the start of our subscription and we have found RIAMS to be a very useful platform to share information amongst teams and with customers.

“Creating folders and uploading our documents has allowed officers to quickly access all procedures for a specific task, for example, detention and seizure of food.

“Communication between teams has also been improved, which has been particularly useful as we use agile working. We recently set up a private community to further improve communication. One of the biggest benefits has been document control which helps to prevent our officers using out of date content.

“We also make good use of the RIAMS Connect feature which has been an efficient way to create web page content.”

If there are any features in addition to those below you’d like us to highlight, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on kwright@rheglobal.com or call 01239 711793.
