Customer Need

The West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (WMAS) is the second-largest ambulance service in the UK. It is the authority responsible for providing NHS ambulance services in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands and Worcestershire

The Challenge

WMAS ‘s initial requirement originated from the high quantity of legal and confidential documents being created and protected. WMAS required an easy to use system that compliments Microsoft Office Documents as well as .pdf documents and apply a layer of protection and governance to prevent Data Leakage. 


PowerON engaged with WMAS and recommended the use of Microsoft RMS (Now AIP) to plug into the existing SharePoint System that is being utilised to apply a layer of management, governance and security to high profile and confidential documents. PowerON assisted and supported with the implementation and configuration of RMS and DLP for WMAS for them to better secure the environment and provide management over content.


The benefit that was seen from this project was the ability to quickly and seamlessly protect documents from the exisiting Microsoft Office Suite, as well as giving the authors of the documents governance and alerts to where the documents have gone and who has attempted access to the documents. The result being that WMAS can now protect any documents and have govenance of the data regardless of if it has been shared internally or externally.
