Law Firm Reduces Exchange Information Store by 60% With C2C's ArchiveOne

Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer Co. Minimizes Storage Resources Used by Its Email and Voice Messaging System

WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2012) - C2C, a leading provider of email, file and messaging management solutions, today announced that full service law firm, Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer Co., has reduced the storage requirements consumed by its Microsoft Exchange email system by more than 60 percent. Using flexible policy options within C2C's ArchiveOne, the large law firm is able to archive email data by age, and conveniently delete voicemail message files sent by email after seven days, for optimum storage resource usage.

Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer Co. is a full service law firm with areas of practice in workers' compensation, personal injury, social security disability, labor and general practice law. The company, which was established in 1955, today operates in nine locations.

When running Exchange 2003, Standard Version, the law firm found that it was dangerously close to the maximum allowable size of its database. It needed to reduce its database size without losing any valuable historical email data. That's when the company began to seek an efficient email archiving solution. After evaluating its options, the large law firm selected C2C's ArchiveOne Enterprise solution because it offered seamless integration with Outlook and flexible policy and repository options.

"C2C allows for clean organization of archival data by year," said Gene Haberman, IT Systems Administrator, Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer Co. "Other products were less expensive but would have required end user education. The extra expense of ArchiveOne was worth not having to train the end users. It is a good value given the features and ease of use."

Of particular value for the law firm were ArchiveOne's flexible policies to create different rules for different message data. The firm created policy options for routine cleaning of voicemail messages. In 2011, the firm had deployed a phone system that sent voice messages to email, and while this feature is convenient for the attorneys, it was causing havoc on the company's limited storage space. Now Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer Co. runs a policy every night to delete voice mail messages from the information store after seven days. This satisfied the attorneys' needs while optimizing storage consumption.

Ultimately, with ArchiveOne in place, the law firm has reduced the size of its information store by 60 percent, from 72GB to just 26GB. Best of all, this was achieved without deletion of critical historical data.

"ArchiveOne has been developed to deliver optimum policy flexibility and end user ease of use," said Dave Hunt, CEO, C2C. "It is ideal for any environment looking to optimize its storage resources while assuring that valued email data is retained and searchable by any user at any time."

ArchiveOne is field-proven to help organizations with archiving, retention and the eDiscovery of email and files, while also providing advanced features for compliance management, intellectual property containment and storage management. ArchiveOne is completely transparent to users, employing a Zero-Training User Design™, and installs in about one hour. In addition, ArchiveOne provides secure access to archived emails through iPhone or BlackBerry devices and through the web and web service technologies for offsite workers. Advanced PST management allows administrators to discover, search, delete or consolidate PST files across the organization. ArchiveOne is not dependent on SQL databases, so it offers best-in-class flexibility and scalability while reducing risk, speeding backups, and improving system usage.
