Staples Expands Footprint in Services with Newly-Launched Licensing Program

Staples, Inc. is expanding its brand into a range of solutions-oriented services and products through licensing agreements. The first agreement is with GRM for Staples Records and Cloud Management, a new solution targeted at helping businesses of any size store and manage records, with a focus on security and compliance.

Staples Records and Cloud Management is now available from GRM Document Management, a provider of records management, that was selected by Staples to develop and market the new service.

Through its licensing program, Staples says companies will now be able to license the Staples trademark to launch Staples-branded products and services, and that it will enforce a rigorous process of partner vetting and product approvals.

According to Frank Bifulco, Staples executive vice president, global marketing, Staples is a recognized brand and trusted provider of products and services, and, by working with other companies offering business solutions, it can extend the branding to additional product areas and also introduce Staples customers to new offerings.

The companies say the new offering delivers a comprehensive, secure and cost-effective tool to manage records while ensuring compliance with industry and government regulations. Services include physical document storage; on demand scanning/imaging using nationwide off-site scanning services; cloud records management; and additional modules focused on HR records management and A/P invoice processing designed for organizations interested in enterprise-level business process automation.

Staples Records and Cloud Management is a trademark used by GRM Information Management Services, Inc. under license from Staples Ventures, LLC. More information on the services available through Staples Records and Cloud Management can be found at
