Email Systems Wins Group-Wide Email Management Contract With Ajilon

Email management specialist Email Systems has signed a contract with the Ajilon Group, a global leader in Managed Services, Consulting and Speciality Staffing, to filter the email of all 1,300 employees across the group’s UK offices. The Ajilon Group comprises brands such as Office Angels, Computer People, OAexec, Jonathan Wren, Roevin and Ajilon Consulting amongst others.

With employees across the UK arm of the group relying on email increasingly heavily, the proprietary content management solution that had been developed in-house some years previously was proving ineffective, with the number of unsolicited mails far outnumbering legitimate emails being received each day group-wide.

Consequently, Ajilon recognised that there was an immediate requirement to work with a third party in order to curtail the problem and reclaim email as an effective business tool. Since the service was installed, Ajilon Group has reported that the quantity of spam being received at inboxes has dropped from more than two thirds of all incoming mail to virtually zero.

Email Systems’ ability to deliver a high quality solution to the exact specifications required was the primary reason that the company was chosen by The Ajilon Group. Aggressive pricing and an immediate strong working relationship amongst the team were also key factors in the appointment.

Ajilon required Email Systems to deliver three key modules, which were subsequently implemented across the group:

Content Management Module – Allowing the Ajilon Group to block, redirect or delete any emails that match defined criteria or set filtering by sender, words, attachment, size or time of day amongst other options
Anti-Spam Module – Delivering global monitoring of spam and email trends which allows Email Systems to catch 98.2% of spam with virtually zero false positives
Anti-Virus Modules – A sophisticated heuristic based anti-virus technology that blocks 100% of all known viruses

Helen Ackroyd, Group Business Services Director, said:

“The Email Systems solution has been an extremely timely intervention for Ajilon as the situation demanded that we find a way to cleanse our corporate network of spam in order to get back to using email effectively. The system was extremely quick to implement and was rolled out across the group with seemingly little effort required on our part. In a short space of time our corporate email has reverted from being blighted by time and bandwidth-sapping constraints to being clean, effective and worry-free, as it should be.”

Neil Hammerton, Managing Director of Email Systems, added:

“The Ajilon Group has seen an immediate benefit from moving to an email management strategy, enjoying a significant reclaim in the quantity of bandwidth previously taken up by spam and a saving on both employee and business time in dealing with email threats. Increasingly, employers are considered responsible for the content that employees are subject to during the course of their working day. With adequate protection in place to ensure that employees are not targeted with undesirable content, organisations such as Ajilon ensure that both employees and employers are protected.”
