COBELFRET Outgrew Microsoft Outlook
Originally, the COBELFRET team was using Microsoft Outlook as their email system. As is the norm in the maritime industry, COBELFRET deals with a high volume of incoming and outgoing email communications daily. With constantly growing email content, came the need for users to be more careful about the amount of storage being used by their mailbox.
Many COBELFRET employees found that they would eventually reach their file storage limit and would no longer be able to send or receive any further emails. Another problem the COBELFRET team faced was the slowness of Outlook’s filing and search functions. Because the system had grown so big, they started to notice colleagues’ computers slowing down when multiple people were interacting with the system. Ultimately, COBELFRET’s email infrastructure outgrew Microsoft Outlook’s capabilities.
