Vedior: Success Story
Netmail Archive Solves the Archiving Needs of One of the World's Largest Recruitment Companies
Objective: Create a formal Document Retention Policy for the Group and find an email archiving solution that would comply with their Policy needs.
Vedior Holding NV, with headquarters in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, is one of the world's largest recruitment companies. It's a full-service recruitment provider with a diversified portfolio of brands targeting a broad range of industry sectors. Vedior operates in 44 countries and has a presence across Europe, North and South America, Australia, and New Zealand, South Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. With more than 2,500 offices and 13,000 employees worldwide, Vedior has a leading position in the provision of recruitment in professional/executive recruitment sectors such as information technology, healthcare, accounting, engineering, and education.
John Nurthen, Director of Corporate Affairs and eBusiness at Vedior Holding, explains: "We identified the need for a suitable product for our email archiving needs, given recent legal judgments and regulatory requirements. Our first step was to create a formal document retention policy for the group and then to look for a solution that would comply with our policy needs. We looked at approximately 20 solutions, but discovered that the market is not well supplied with GroupWise-specific email archiving applications meeting our specifications. Our partner, EMC, suggested we contact Messaging Architects and strongly recommended Netmail Archive. Upon further investigation, we found it was the one product that could best comply with our needs and wishes."
Following a proof-of-concept trial, Vedior purchased and installed the product with minimal issues. One of Messaging Architects’ Business Partners, IctIvity, assisted with the installation and implementation of Netmail Archive. Netmail Archive was installed for 1,200 users in the Netherlands and, later this year, will be implemented for 800 users in Belgium.
Nurthen continues: "Netmail Archive is an essential part of our records retention policy. The installation was undertaken by our own IT staff, Messaging Architects' business partner, IctIvity, and the Messaging Architects system engineers in only three days. The Netmail Archive installation in the Dutch office is based on its tight integration with NetApp Storage Systems. The NetApp Storage System is licensed with a Snaplock module to completely secure the archived data from removal or tampering until the required retention period is reached. Installing the NetApp Storage System in combination with Netmail Archive guarantees a solid retention environment that meets current regulatory requirements. More importantly, we are guaranteed for the future, too."
In conclusion Nurthen notes: "So far, we are very happy that we chose this product!"
