Over 205 billion emails were sent each day in 2015. Per business user, this breaks down to 122 emails a day. Over the course of the year, this can put your staff’s inbox under incredible strain.
Without proper organisation and management systems in place, messages can easily be lost in the black hole that is your cluttered inbox— but what is email management and how does it work? Find out in our latest blog post…
What is email management?
Email management software helps to ease the day-to-day pressures of email handling. It is a systematic tool that aims to improve the filing, storage and overall organisation of an individual’s emails, helping to improve a staff member’s overall efficiency.
While there are different types of email management software available, here at Oasys, we offer Mail Manager. Unlike other solutions that operate independently, Mail Manager is an Outlook plugin that works by filing emails and attachments inside standard system folders, located on either a PC or wider network.
The plugin learns your filing behaviour too, helping to keep all key information where it should be. And, to make finding what you need even faster, there’s a powerful search function.
Because Mail Manager is a local client application, it requires no complicated installation or configuration. It’s simple to use and can be accessed on the move, via mobile and tablet devices, keeping your emails in order at all times.
As well as maximising staff working time, the plugin provides easily accessible maps that show who individuals communicate with most. By mapping out the communication plans of your office, you can identify areas of improvement in terms of team structure, as well as spotting vulnerable projects, one-way emails and underused or neglected resources.
From easing the duties of staff members to providing greater visibility for upper management, there are many benefits to email management software. Download your free 30-day trial of Mail Manager today to see the software in action.
