Savaré Speciality Adhesives loves Netmail

Challenge

The burden of an ever-increasing email database size slowed down search processes and presented challenges for the Savaré Specialty Adhesives IT department, particularly with respect to the size of their backup and the time required to back up the system.

Solution

Savaré chose Netmail because with the Netmail Platform, they could keep their current email system and architecture while at the same time avoiding interrupting operations, re-training personnel, or incurring a potential mishap in the workflow.

Results

Savaré was able to dramatically reduce the size of their message store by archiving mail to a centralized XML repository after which the company saw an immediate increase in the responsiveness of the email system, a reduction in the time required to back up the system, and a reduction in the bandwidth involved in disaster recovery procedures.

Overview

Savaré Speciality Adhesives adopted the Netmail Platform with the aim of enhancing the effectiveness of email search and reduce the size and backup time of their Groupwise system. With the help of Netmail, Savaré achieved their goal and the company is already recognizing the ROI of implementing the Netmail Platform.

Business Challenge

Savaré Specialty Adhesives has been using Groupwise for almost 15 years. Originally, the company's overall satisfaction with the security and the customization of the system was very high, but over the years, the burden of an ever-increasing email database size slowed down search processes and presented challenges for the IT department, particularly with respect to the size of their backup and the time required to back up the system. Due to the international nature of the industry, and the different time zones the company operates in, Savaré also needed to ensure that their email system was available 24/7 to meet the needs of their overseas offices, which created additional challenges for the operations team. So Savaré Speciality Adhesives began to look at alternate solutions, some of which required a change in the email system architecture, and others which were better suited to their current GroupWise system. Eventually, Savaré chose Netmail because with the Netmail Platform, they could keep their current GroupWise system and architecture while at the same time avoiding interrupting operations, retraining personnel, or incurring a potential mishap in the workflow.

After implementing the Netmail Platform, Savaré was able to dramatically reduce the size of the GroupWise message store by archiving mail to a centralized XML repository after which the company saw an immediate increase in the responsiveness of the email system, a reduction in the time required to back up the system, and a reduction in the bandwidth involved in disaster recovery procedures.

Once the Netmail Platform was in place, the company was better able to address their eDiscovery requirements using the full text and proximity search features of Netmail Search.

Critical Requirements

  • Reduce the size of the email database by migrating older email to Netmail without losing access to important historical data
  • Improve the search and retrieval process of critical data
  • Remain compatible with the GroupWise architecture and clients
  • Enforce email retention
