Email archiving for MSPs is an often-overlooked service that can add value and improve profits. Email archiving is easy to implement and manage, has a high margin, generates regular additional income, and should be an easy sell to clients.
In this post we explore the benefits for clients and MSPs and explain why email archiving for MSPs and their clients is a win-win.
Benefits of Email Archiving for SMBs
Email archiving is now important for organizations of all sizes, from SMBs to the largest enterprises. Huge volumes of emails are sent and received on a daily basis and copies of those emails need to be stored, saved, and often retrieved. Storage of emails in mailboxes poses problems. The storage space required for emails and attachments can be considerable, which means hardware must be purchased and maintained. In terms of security, storing large volumes of emails in mailboxes is never a good idea.
Storing emails in backups is an option, although it is far from ideal. Space is still required and recovering emails when they are needed is a major headache as backup files are not indexed and searching for messages can be extremely time consuming.
An email archive on the other hand is indexed and searchable and emails can be quickly and easily retrieved on demand. If there is a legal dispute or when an organization needs to demonstrate compliance – with GDPR or HIPAA for example – businesses need to be able to recover emails quickly and easily. An email archive also provides a clear chain of custody, which is also required for compliance with many regulations.
Cloud-based archives offer secure storage for emails with no restrictions on storage space. Cloud storage is highly scalable and emails can be easily retrieved from any location. In short, email archiving can improve efficiency, enhance security, lower costs, and is an invaluable compliance tool.
Benefits of Email Archiving for MSPs
Given the benefits of email archiving it should be an easy sell for MSPs, either as Office 365 archiving-as-a-service as an add-on or incorporated into existing email packages to offer greater value and make your packages stand out from those of your competitors.
As an add-on service, Office 365 archiving-as-a-service will generate regular income for very little effort and will improve the meager returns from simply offering Office 365 to your clients. As part of a package it can help you to attract more business.
