To solve their email headache, RPA was recommended Mail Manager by Arup. They trialled Mail Manager and quickly decided to implement the Outlook add-in across their business, as both a matter of necessity and the solution meeting their requirements. Their set-up is now Outlook with project folders, with each project having a specific folder, and Mail Manager ensures all emails are being filed in a central location.
RPA were able to start using Mail Manager within two months across the entire company. Following the easy implementation, they were able to search for historical information relating to any topic, even if they simply needed to just find a contact’s phone number in an email signature.
The entire company was involved in a short training period and adoption was quick and simple. They have been using Mail Manager for four years, and it’s fully-integrated in part of their daily processes, included as part of the induction process for new starters. New employees are shown how the email filing and search works, along with educating them on the importance of email management. All employees in RPA are up and running filing their emails consistency, with very little effort and complying with project management process and ISO standards. They can now find proposals quickly and information previously locked in emails is accessible to all.
Leanne says, “Since using Mail Manager, we’ve never struggled to find anything. The powerful search functionality is so easy, especially with the filters that enable us to search for anything. Anyone in the company can now find every single email filed, regardless of who sent it, who received it and what it contained. That means we can find proposal information, tender documents and project conversations at ease. We’ve also managed to reduce our storage costs, which we were constantly being warned about beforehand.”
