Risk Reduction is necessary in today’s litigious world. Every company should have an e-mail archiving solution for their own protection. When the only aid in court that a company may have is an old e-mail, having every email that passes through the company’s servers on-hand is very important. The only way to reduce the company’s level of risk to collect information that passes through the company’s employees every day.
Company’s that have government contracts are required to archive e-mails to remain in compliance with federal laws. Other companies may find themselves in a problematic situation created by a mis-communication between clients or vendors.
Defend Yourself In Court
In order to clear the air, mount a defense in court, or offer proof that certain work is being done, a business must be able to prove that certain electronic communications actually happened. Without this vital information, an employee or the board itself can only say that an e-mail was sent. Having the ability to provide exact copies of the e-mails sents, who they were sent to, and when they were sent can be the difference between a massive settlement and a dismissal of a case.
Also, e-mail chains can be used by businesses who are creditors in a bankruptcy case. Having the ability to prove that a customer has been contacted concerning a debt can help the company receive payment in the future.
Recently, a settlement was reached with a large multi-national bank due, in large part, to the internal emails that were uncovered in the lawsuit. Emails chain archiving can win back millions of dollars potentially for a business who is seeking restitution.
