Woodstock, GA (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
GBS Enterprises Incorporated (OTCQB: GBSX), a global software and services company specializing in Application Modernization and Cloud Automation solutions, today announced the completion of an enterprise-wide deployment of its FewClix, value-added email search and productivity application designed for IBM’s Lotus Notes environment at a Global Management Consulting Firm.
The Consulting Firm is a trusted advisor to the world’s leading businesses, governments and institutions and a long time user of Lotus Notes. The firm wanted to improve its user’s ability to quickly perform customizable searches across all their Lotus Notes email and archive folders. This was a critical management initiative designed to improve employee productivity and responsiveness across all their business units and locations worldwide. In addition, they sought a solution that would integrate seamlessly with their everyday usage of the Lotus Notes client.
“For an email intensive environment like ours, one of the most critical challenges faced by our employees is the amount of time spent every day on email search and the productivity loss associated with the number of unsuccessful search attempts. We required a solution that eliminated the time loss by providing accurate and rapid results. At the same time the solution needed to be extremely usable and intuitive for non-IT savvy users, and seamless with their everyday email usage. Our experience with FewClix during trials with a small group of users helped established that it would meet all our needs and help save us a significant amount of time every day,” said their Director - Desktop Infrastructure, Messaging and Collaboration.
The firm purchased FewClix for deployment to all 16,000+ employees globally. The firm licensed both FewClix Unity, which is integrated inside the user’s Lotus Notes mail box and FewClix Retro Plus, which enables users to perform simultaneous search across multiple archives.
“FewClix’ delivers easily quantifiable value and measurable ROI. In most large enterprise environments with any kind of dependency on email, these metrics are hard to ignore. We expect that FewClix will play a significant role in helping email dependent enterprise users saving significant amounts of time every day, especially in the North American Lotus Notes email market,” says Gary MacDonald, CEO, GBS. “For example, even if we estimate very conservatively that FewClix will help this customer with 16,000+ employees save just 2 minutes per employee per day, the organization will save close to 130,000 hours every year, translating into cost savings of approximately $3.2 million a year and an ROI period of just 14 business days!”
FewClix is an email search and productivity application for Lotus Notes that completely transforms the way users interact with their email. FewClix helps users save a significant amount of time every day by enabling them to perform key email tasks faster and more effectively. It is also seamlessly integrated into the Lotus Notes environment.
