Challenge: Email archiving hurdles 

Before adopting MacroView, Antea Group faced challenges in archiving and managing emails efficiently, especially after transitioning to Microsoft 365.

With their previous system, users were able to archive and manage emails but Microsoft 365 lacked the capabilities to archive emails comprehensively, posing a risk of data loss and hindering collaboration.

The company needed a solution that aligned with user expectations and facilitated seamless email management, across the diverse and numerous projects the company managed.

After evaluating several options, Antea Group chose MacroView DMS’s familiarity and user-friendly interface.
