About Andrew Warland Consulting

Our vision

We aim to help organisations manage records using Microsoft 365 and SharePoint Online according to business and regulatory requirements, and international standards such as ISO 15489 and ISO 16175.

About the company

Andrew Warland Consulting was re-established in 2019 after seven years (when I worked full-time for other organisations) to meet the demand from organisations to understand how to approach the management of records in Microsoft 365 and SharePoint Online. We do not sell Microsoft licences, do not represent or get any financial or other benefit from Microsoft or any third-party products or vendors, and do not do 'hands on' implementation activities. Our services are focussed on training and advisory support only.

Since 2019 we have provided training, advisory and project support for a wide range of Australian and international organisations including National/Federal, State and local government agencies (in several countries), and small to medium-size businesses. In almost all cases, the focus has been on helping organisations understanding how to configure Microsoft 365 and SharePoint Online to manage records.
