Email Archiving – the Return on Your Investment is More Than You Think
Sorting through email takes time. It may not seem like much, but spending fifteen minutes each day sorting through spam isn’t exactly a productive use of company time and money. With Intradyn’s email archiving , it’s easy for a company to save resources that they wouldn’t have even realized they were wasting. Email archiving can create a significant return on investment.
Let’s meet Imagine Consulting, a rapidly expanding company that recently hired on their 500th employee. Their business is booming, with each employee working hard to earn their $50,000 per year salary. The expansion has prompted the promotion of more executives, each earning a $100,000 yearly salary, and business is looking up for our fictional corporate machine. However, what Imagine doesn’t realize is that they are losing both money and time where they least expect it.
When the work day starts, each of Imagine’s 500 employees takes their place at their desk and starts their day by checking their e-mail. They sip at their coffee as they organize, sort, and delete their built up messages. The whole process takes about ten minutes per employee, before everyone buckles down and gets to work. When lunchtime rolls around the process repeats itself; everyone makes their way back to their desk and spends ten minutes digging through their email before they can get back on the job.
It might not seem like much time is being spent; it’s just email, right? Ten minutes, twice each day, for each employee. That’s 100 minutes a week per employee, totaling 50,000 minutes – or 43,00 hours in a year. Imagine’s employees aren’t trying to waste time, but they are collectively letting a massive amount of resources slip through the company’s fingers. If there’s 100 executives making an annual salary of $100,000 and 400 other employees bringing in $45,000 each year, then Imagine is losing a considerable amount of money – almost $1.2 million a year.
Imagine sees this money sink at work, and invests in Intradyn email archiving. Instead of sorting emails, all 500 Imagine employees can get straight to work every morning. The employees make excellent use of those 43,000 hours, and the company comes out of the deal knowing that $1.2 million isn’t being wasted on casually sipping coffee and hand-sorting through spam. The return on investment is almost automatic.
