Among its first business user is Scottish law firm MacRoberts. IT manager, Robert Crichton, says the company used to run archving in-house. But with 300 users, after a year and half of use, the system creaked and groaned. Rather than upgrade, Crichton has used MSE to provide email archiving. End users see no difference, apart from a new way to search. He says, "Users get an Outlook add-on, which allows them to search the archives." Previously, such functionality would have needed IT to check the archives.
Crichton says the other benefit of using cloud-based email archiving over an in-house system, is that users can access the archive from anywhere users a web tool with their standard email login.
