"Email Management System"

Email Management System

FALCON ERP identified e-mail management and archiving as an area where they wanted to improve efficiency and was well aware of the complexities involved with managing email within their firm. They pinpointed these areas:

  • With teams consisting of employees working in a fast paced environment, staff needed to share messages and required the ability to find them quickly when needed.
  • From an audit and legal perspective, firms are exposed if they can't locate critical communications. This can become a cumbersome task that is not always prioritized with demanding schedules. As a result, the process of filing messages needed to be made a simple and natural part of sending and receiving email.
  • User's in boxes were growing, partly due to large attachments, and there was a risk that staff would delete business critical messages to keep within their storage limits.
  • Finding e-mails was a hassle and the effort required solely for e-discovery was costing significant time and money.
