Chris was referred to Mail Manager by a colleague of his who had been using our software for a few years and described it as invaluable to his firm. Today, Architecture & Access have been using Mail Manager for 12-months. Emails are now getting loaded into the projects, which means that Chris and anyone else in the business can go into a project at any point in time and see what discussions have been had, and easily find email trails and conversations.
The intuitive nature of the search function was a huge selling point for Chris, who explained: “The search function in Mail Manager is easy. You can just scroll down, and you’ve got the text visible straight away, and can use keywords to search. Our previous system needed about seven or eight clicks with three different tabs, as well as typing in all the information to find the right email. With Mail Manager, you don’t often need to put in any keywords, it picks up what project or folder it should go into. I think the other thing that we find is that documentation, like where we’ve received lots of drawings and attachments, is far easier to find down the track. It’s money well spent.”
When asked why he chose to implement Mail Manager, Chris commented: “The key was to be able to file emails very quickly because there are hundreds every day. It saves us a lot of time and we’re able to get documentation stored in a central repository that anyone can access. And the search functions ability to be able to go back and find correspondence easily. It’s a godsend and paid for itself overnight.”
“With Mail Manager, I have a lot more confidence about what’s going on from a business owner’s perspective. You’ve got confidence that information is actually being saved and you can check it very quickly. It helps us run the whole business smoothly.”
