Long live email… specially Google Gmail… because… nowadays, without a shadow of a doubt, it is one of the most powerful tools a company can have. Given its global nature, we don’t even need to go into its benefits, we just have to close our eyes and imagine the mess if it broke down and stopped working…
Since most companies have entrusted the management of their email to on-premise solutions, primarily manufacturers such as Microsoft or Lotus Notes, ECM platform providers such as OpenText reacted in time ensuring that all this incoming and outgoing information could be imported and automatically become part of the organisation’s internal processes.
However, with the arrival of Cloud email, currently led by the likes of Google Gmail, things appear to be changing. More and more companies are turning to this new digital catalyst, the Cloud, and entrusting Google Gmail with managing their emails. So what’s happening to their established information technologies? Integrating their solutions so they adapt to new needs isn’t so easy and the noticeable desire for speed in this digital age, less so.
Luckily for OpenText devotees, with our Gmail Integration we have prepared the way for integrating the famed eDOCS DM document manager with this new reality. You don’t have to get rid of all the nice bits of this DMS again, all you in fact finally need is a single click to activate communication between eDOCS DM and Google Gmail. So, we have finally managed to combine efficient corporate document management with an email management service in the Cloud, creating efficient internal and external communication. So, although this is crucial to all sectors, it’s true to say that this Google Gmail integration is the Holy Grail for law firms.
A certain distrust, which you can understand, in storing sensitive information outside the company, added to the final decision-makers’ lack of technological knowledge, and successful cybernetic attacks aimed at companies like Adobe, Sony, eBay… or weaknesses such as those recently acknowledged by Netflix… have been the main factor in preventing the migration of their systems. However, companies are gradually beginning to see the huge benefits of Cloud services, including lawyers, and are accepting them.
We’d really like to tell you more about our integration solution between OpenText eDOCS DM and Google Gmail, as this year it’s loaded with new functions. So… here goes!
