  • Show your prospects “why you, why now”

    October 1, 2014

    Show your prospects “why you, why now”

    MSPs, here’s a helpful tip to grab your prospect’s attention and get them talking!

    When you’re trying to reach a prospect, do you have a hard to getting them to engage with you over the phone? How about getting them to respond to an email?

    When I’m on the phone or sending an email, I use the “Why you, why now” approach. This is how it works…

    First, here’s the “why you” part. Before each call, find a specific reason the prospect is a good fit for email archiving. For example, mention research you’ve done on the company and talk about other companies with a common challenge you’ve helped solve.

    Next comes the “why now” part. Creating a sense of urgency is very important. Find a recent article about how a company is under scrutiny after email went missing. Ask your prospect what would happen if something similar happened at his company. By using a relevant attention grabber, you’ll engage the prospect in a valuable business conversation and be seen as a subject matter expert.

    Once you’ve captured the prospect’s attention, set up the next steps and move closer toward closing the deal.

  • Even non-regulated businesses need email archiving

    September 24, 2014

    Business in the cloud

    Do prospects tell you they don’t need email archiving because their businesses aren’t regulated? When that happens, I explain that data preservation is a best practice for all businesses.

    Cloud-based email archiving protects your company’s valuable intellectual property. At a time when the majority of business is conducted by electronic communications, securing and retaining those important conversations that contain intellectual property and other valuable information protects your business.

    Cloud archiving also provides fast and accurate search, so you can illuminate dark data and make it actionable. When you have access to meaningful data, you make better informed decisions.

    Lastly, you can eliminate risk and protect your company from potential fines associated with failing to produce relevant information in a timely manner. In case of a legal dispute, with email archiving, you can quickly respond with all relevant information, including conversations, contracts or other files.

    Email archiving protects intellectual property, makes data actionable and reduces risk. Protect your customers, their data and their businesses with email archiving.

    It’s not just MSPs who find value in the cloud. According to MSP Mentor, venture capitalists have their eyes on cloud computing for the second year in a row, due to “improving capital market conditions and the abundance of new start-up companies.”

  • Have you seen what’s going on with email?

    September 8, 2014

    GigaOm Structure Conference

    Email, archiving and the battle over access to public records is in the news – again.

    Stories about government agencies and businesses with email and data retention troubles are all over TV, the web and newspapers lately.

    This time, the state of Pennsylvania is making headlines about email, archiving and deletion policies.

    The Pittsburgh-Post Gazette makes the issue crystal clear: “The state has begun exploring ways it might archive emails that routinely are deleted by its 80,000 executive branch employees so those documents would be preserved for litigation and Right to Know reviews…”

    According to the article:

    • State employees who are encouraged to pare emails from their inboxes decide for themselves which of their emails are public records.
    • Deleted emails are backed up on state servers for five days and then are permanently deleted.
    • An archiving system would cover 47 agencies under the governor’s jurisdiction.

    Last month, the state of New York was accused of keeping government emails out of the public’s hands.

    Earlier this year, a similar information battle about email started brewing in Iowa.

    In fact, government agencies have been in the spotlight because of email quite a bit in recent months.

    In June, the Internal Revenue Service was under fire from Congress because it can’t find two years worth of former employee Lois Lerner’s email. That’s a huge problem, considering Congressional investigators have subpoenaed them.
    As you may recall, Lerner, the former Director of Tax Exempt Organizations at the IRS, was accused of targeting and delaying the applications of conservative organizations. She refused to testify before Congress, was held in contempt and left her position amid the controversy.

    In May, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned in the wake of his department being accused of deadly delays in health care at some of its hospitals. E-mails allegedly discussing the destruction of a secret list of veterans waiting for care were at the heart of the scandal.

    All these stories have a common theme – preserving and searching email data.

    In every article, it’s clear that cloud-based email archiving could have made a difference.

    If you’re not preserving the intellectual property and other valuable data in your email, you’re putting your organization – and maybe even yourself – at risk.

    Don’t take unnecessary chances. Save every message because you never know. Search every message when you need to know.

    Preserve and protect your email – before there’s an issue.
