What is Workforce email?
Workforce email is suitable for organizations with employees
that do not normally work at a desk, including hospital nurses,
field service staff, bank tellers, warehouse staff, and many
other 'blue-collar' type employees. Onemailbox's Workforce email
service provides organizations with an affordable and scaleable
way to extend email to the entire workforce. Desk-less workers
can now be integrated to the corporate email infrastructure with
almost no investment. In addition, the service provides end-user
mail box control and anytime, anywhere access to email.
Why do I need Workforce email?
According to a recent study published in May 2003, more than 50%
of the workforce does not have email at work. In fact, millions
of workers in healthcare, manufacturing, retail and hospitality
suffer from lack of email. Due to the mobile nature of their
jobs, these desk-less workers need the communication benefits of
email to help them know what is going on back at the corporate
offices and to be more effective & responsive. By providing
them with appropriate communications tools, they can share their
knowledge and ideas with the rest of their workers, receive
schedules, pay stubs, and other important job related
What are the benefits of Workforce email?
With the use of Onemailbox's Workforce email service, employee
productivity increases, as does overall organizational
effectiveness. In fact, companies that roll-out workforce email
see almost immediate savings in communications costs, not to
mention increased employee productivity and satisfaction.
The inherent speed of email and its ability to reduce paper,
printing and distribution costs make it a must-have for every
employee these days. For large companies, this can translate to
tremendous costs communicating with their employees via printed
newsletters and other non-electronic formats. With Workforce
email, desk-less workers get fast, easy and secure access to
email when and where they need it.

device with internet access. In addition, the system integrates
seamlessly with your current IT environment thereby maintaining

This solution includes simplified administration and management
tools, encryption and authentication, scalable POP/IMAP message
