We have been amazed by how much time is lost or wasted by staff simply looking for emails or attachments; whether because they are trying to find a needle in a haystack or the email you need is in somebody else’s mailbox. Poor email management creates lost opportunities, lowers productivity and opens a company to undue risk (e.g. compliance). It has been reported that the average worker spends an estimated 28% of their workweek managing email.*
