Announces Availability and Pricing for FewClix, the IBM Lotus Notes Email Productivity Application

Synaptris, a leading player in the Information Management space and the market leader in the Lotus Notes information management market, today announced the availability of and pricing for FewClix.

FewClix is an email productivity application for IBM Lotus Notes that completely changes the corporate email paradigm. It is tailored to meet the unique needs of the enterprise market and brings improved efficiency and productivity to corporate email users.

Since its Public Beta launch in January 2010, FewClix has established a large and active beta user base with many enterprises evaluating deployment to employees throughout their organizations. Synaptris has already signed Enterprise License Agreements for deploying FewClix enterprise-wide while it was still in beta.

FewClix saves email users an average of 15 to 30 minutes a day by enabling them to manage their email more effectively and perform every day email tasks faster and more efficiently. For example, it provides an intuitive and instantaneous way for end users to locate an email or isolate a set of emails that they need to work on (irrespective of whether the emails are in their primary mail box, archives or offline mail files) with just a few clicks.

FewClix was developed in close partnership with several customers. Based on extensive user feedback, it is designed to deliver a paradigm shift in usability and productivity for email users. It changes user behavior from "browsing emails" to "prioritizing / isolating emails" and delivers a significant increase in user productivity as a result.

"Lotus Notes provides an open, standards-based technology environment which has enabled an extremely vibrant partner network, helping to significantly enhance the value we deliver to customers. FewClix, the new email productivity application from Synaptris is a great example of how our partners can leverage this open environment and, in this case, deliver significant productivity gains for Lotus Notes email users." said Kevin Cavanaugh, IBM's Vice President of Messaging & Collaboration.

FewClix is the first email productivity application that gives users the ability to:

  •      Instantly isolate important emails
  •      Quickly and easily locate any message in the mailbox or any archive
  •      Access information across the mailbox and archives simultaneously
  •      Personalize the mailbox for every situation
  •      Organize email more effectively for clearing clutter or archiving messages
  •      Discover social networks dynamically via the email network

Based on feedback from beta users, Synaptris estimates that low volume email users (~10 emails a day) will save 5 to 15 minutes per day, while high volume users (over 30 emails/day) will save 15 to 30 minutes per day using FewClix.

Synaptris has announced an innovative pricing model for enterprise customers that is linked to the customer's purchase price for the Lotus Notes client. Based on this model, customers who deploy FewClix to all Lotus Notes users in the enterprise will pay only 40% of their Lotus Notes Client purchase price for FewClix.

FewClix is priced at $49.95 per user for individual buyers (retail) and $14.95 for students. Individual users can buy the product online at http://www.fewclix.com/.

To illustrate the ROI that FewClix delivers; even at the individual buyer price of $49.95, an enterprise in North America or Europe with a user base of 1,000 employees (assuming 80% low volume users and 20% high volume users), will experience an increase in corporate productivity of 29,000 employee hours per year and will achieve 100% ROI in 30 days. Customers can compute their pricing and the associated 100% ROI / Payback period using the online ROI Calculator that will be available shortly on http://www.fewclix.com.

"We have introduced a pricing model that makes the software acquisition process painless. Customers have existing contracts and pricing in place with IBM for acquiring Lotus Notes Client licenses based on their volume of purchase and we have designed our pricing model to reflect their current contracts", said Jeff Lechleiter, COO of Synaptris.
