The North Mayenne Hospital Centre

North Mayenne Hospital Centre loves Netmail

Challenge

Faced with difficult economic times, and an economy on the downturn, the North Mayenne Hospital Centre decided to replace its existing email security solution to reduce costs.

Solution

The North Mayenne Hospital Centre chose the Netmail Platform to get a more robust and reliable email management solution with top-of-the-line email security that also allowed its end users to manage their own quarantines.

Results

Administrators no longer have to supervise end user quarantines, as each user is able to manage their own quarantine as well as any distribution lists to which they belong, thanks to a daily report that is delivered to their mailboxes.

Introducing the North Mayenne Hospital Centre

The North Mayenne Hospital Centre is a public health facility located in the town of Mayenne, France, and covers an area north of the region with a population of approximately 93,000 inhabitants. About 1,100 professionals work at the hospital, including 70 doctors.

The challenge of improving the quality of spam filtering and anti-virus protection at a reasonable cost

In a difficult economic environment, the North Mayenne Hospital Centre decided to replace its existing email security solution to reduce costs. So the North Mayenne Hospital Centre decided to evaluate the Netmail Platform to see if they could get a more robust and reliable email management solution with top-of-the-line email security that also allowed its end users to manage their own quarantines. For Jean-Jacques Devilly, an IT specialist at the North Mayenne Hospital Centre, another important consideration was the ability to get Support locally, in France, if needed.

End-user quarantine management

"Since installing Netmail, the feedback from our end users on the quality of spam filtering is very positive," says Jean-Jacques Devilly. “With Netmail, administrators no longer have to supervise end user quarantines, as each user is able to manage their own quarantine as well as any distribution lists to which they belong, thanks to a daily report that is delivered to their mailboxes.” Jean-Jacques Devilly adds, "In clearly defining the objectives of the project, as well as the smooth installation process configuration of Netmail through the cooperation of both our IT Team and the Netmail Team, this project was a huge success. The Netmail Team listened to what we wanted and responded promptly to all our requests."

Next step: Setting up archiving with Netmail

Now the North Mayenne Hospital Centre is considering implementing the archiving component of the Netmail Platform to take care of its archiving needs during the next calendar year.

Key figures (2013) )

  • Employees: 1,194 employees
  • 900 email users
  • 632 beds and places
  • Inpatient occupancy rate: 80.56%

The email security component of the Netmail Platform helps email administrators spend less time managing their email. With easy-to-apply policies that cover everything from Attachment Blocking to Content Filtering to Outbound Limits, Netmail lets administrators focus on other issues instead of tedious spam management.
