An Open Letter to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger & Other U.S. Governors

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2009) - LiveOffice, the leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) email archiving solutions, today issued the following open letter to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and other United States governors grappling with budget cuts, furloughs, hiring freezes and layoffs:

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger & Other United States Governors:

It's no secret, times are tough. In light of the current economy, you have to make do with far fewer resources than ever before. At the same time, you still need technologies in place to keep your states running smoothly and in compliance with the multitude of current laws and regulations (FRCP, California Public Records Act, Sunshine Laws). With the ever-growing volumes of email and the critical importance of maintaining it as a government record, your technology departments are struggling with how to keep email systems operating without the funding they need.

We have a solution for you -- SaaS email management. With this model, your technology teams can outsource all email-related tasks to an expert vendor, and you only pay for what you need on a monthly basis. The flexibility of SaaS during tough economic times means your technology teams can:

--  Add and remove users as needed, without paying for unused accounts or
    waiting to scale your infrastructure
--  Maintain full control of email, while shifting the burden and expense
    of high network uptime and reliability to an enterprise-class vendor
--  Get up and running with fully hosted email and legally compliant
    archiving in just a matter of days (not months) without disrupting end

In response to these difficult economic times, we are introducing the LiveOffice Economic Recovery Plan. This program is designed to provide state and local governments as well as educational institutions with an effective solution for managing email systems, while also ensuring that all retention and compliance requirements are seamlessly met. And, to those public sector and non-profit organizations facing uncertainty about your government funding, financing and budgets for this year, we also invite you to signup. The LiveOffice Economic Recovery Plan allows you to take advantage of our SaaS-based email archiving and hosting solutions with no monthly payments until June 1, 2009.*
