“Offering this full suite of e-messaging and communication technologies greatly enhances the bank’s ability to instantly collaborate reducing reactive work, shortening loan cycles and decreasing support cost,” said the IT director at the bank. “As a result, this product brings added value to our virtual branch, website and public facing email services. Customers like secure email because it’s faster than overnight services or driving to a branch.
