Is Email affecting your productivity?
How much time do you spend every day on email? As it turns out, email has become the #1 enterprise application for most organizations. Here are some interesting statistics:
  • The average person spends 14.5 hours per week reading email (IDC)
  • The average person spends 9.5 hours per week searching for emails, files and attachments (IDC)
  • Email is growing at an annual rate of 45% (Gartner Group)
  • Up to 75% of a company's intellectual property is in email (ESG)
  • Email is the #1 source for legal and regulatory inquiries (ESG)

X1's own surveys show that searching through email is the #2 reason for using X1 (finding files on a PC is #1). Given the continued growth in email and the complexity of wading through thousands of emails, both online and archived, the need to quickly find data not only has an impact on productivity, but it can affect an organization's ability to operate.

X1 has grown our email support over the years, expanding from just Outlook to Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes. In 2009 we are working on product enhancements specific to email.

Feel free to contact us to learn more about X1's ability to simplify how you view email.
