Like many public organizations, SPS is subject to public record requests which include electronic records. In addition to simplifying archiving and storage of emails, the Unlimited Mailbox solution will provide the school district with the most advanced e-discovery tools available to make message search and retrieval more time and cost efficient.

Computer Generated Solutions Inc. (CGS) announces that Spokane Public Schools (SPS) will implement the Unlimited Mailbox™ email archiving and e-discovery solution across the district’s 5000-user GroupWise® email system. In replacing the existing message archival tool, Unlimited Mailbox will provide advanced email archiving and e-discovery capabilities that will enable SPS to move beyond current message retrieval and system scalability limitations to reduce costs and improve compliance with regulatory requirements.

Unlimited Mailbox will provide SPS with automated message archiving, on-demand access, fast and easy retrieval, automatic backup and recovery solutions. These advanced capabilities will enable SPS to reduce system complexity, increase user productivity, and reduce administration costs.

“We are honored with the opportunity to work with Spokane Public Schools to advance their email archive management capabilities,” stated Michael Wilding, senior vice president for Unlimited Mailbox. “Like many public organizations, SPS is subject to public record requests which include electronic records. In addition to simplifying archiving and storage of emails, the Unlimited Mailbox solution will provide the school district with the most advanced e-discovery tools available to make message search and retrieval more time and cost efficient.”

With no new code required on existing mail servers, Unlimited Mailbox delivers SPS a uniquely non-invasive system that will leverage the existing GroupWise® e-mail infrastructure to manage email archival and retrieval. Users will retrieve e-mails as usual and archived e-mails will be retrieved right to the user desktop without IT intervention. Archived mail can also be accessed from remote locations. In contrast to SPS’ current system, Unlimited Mailbox does not require vendor-specific hardware or modular add-ons to expand the system. The new system is also email platform independent with support for most popular email systems through a single code base for all platforms.
