Meet Mike, a project manager for a prestigious construction firm. In this industry, it’s no secret that every decision is crucial. He was a successful project manager, until one day when the horrors of disorganized emails finally caught up to him.
The haunting absence of organization
Mike had always prided himself on his commitment to every project, ensuring that no stone was left unturned in the relentless pursuit of perfection. However, he failed to manage an often overlooked aspect of his workflow: his inbox.
Emails inundated Mike's inbox, each more significant than the last as each project progressed. Construction blueprints, project timelines, and vital communications were scattered and lost. Without a structured system in place, his inbox became a mess and any hope of a clear audit trail was lost.
In preparation for a critical project meeting, Mike was faced with a nightmare scenario. He desperately needed an old email containing a crucial project detail, but the email had vanished into mess that was his disorganized inbox. Whilst searching for this particular email, the project turned into a series of unfortunate events. Deadlines started being extended, and he could no longer keep his commitments. Finally, a dispute with a client was unleashed, dragging his company into the darkness of litigation.
How to avoid disputes
All of this could have been avoided, had Mike used his foresight and implemented software such as Ideagen Mail Manager into the business. With automatically filed emails, organized inboxes, and a clear audit trail, email correspondence and digital collaboration never needs to be a headache again.
