We listed on the Google Apps marketplace 3 months back, and the response to GrexIt that we’ve seen from Google Apps users has been extremely encouraging. GrexIt’s easy email sharing functionality is being used daily by thousands of Google Apps users to add value to their project management, HR, sales, operations and support processes. We’re constantly engaging closely with all companies using GrexIt to see what they find useful about GrexIt, and what they would like to improve and build in the next few months.
We recently talked to Carl
, a leading Architectural consultancy firm in the UK. Carl is the IT manager for Gillingdod. Gillingdod recently moved from MS Exchange based email to Google Apps, and started using GrexIt a couple of months back. Carl tells us that Gillingdod is using GrexIt as a replacement for the Exchange Public folders functionality, for which they could not find any other alternative in the Google Apps eco-system. Gillingdod has been using Public Folders to store a share useful email communication
, and being able to find this functionality after switching to Google Apps is very important to them.
GrexIt has enabled Gillingdod to easily share useful emails with team members right from inside the Google Apps email accounts using our contextual gadget and Fetch Rules Email Sharing
features. Carl is now looking for easy ways to export their existing Public Folders content from their old Microsoft Exhange setup to GrexIt, which are still preserved and accessed from user’s Outlook clients. We understand that it must be pretty painful to access the old Public Folders content from Outlook, while going to GrexIt for the content that has been shared after the company moved to Google Apps and deployed GrexIt.
We’re currently working on a few ways for GrexIt users to easily export public folders content from the Exchange/Outlook GrexIt, and hope to release something by the end of January 2012. Watch this space for details, and thanks again Carl, for talking to us.
Update: GrexIt now supports import of your email conversations from PST files. If you’re moving to Google Apps from Microsoft Exchange, GrexIt is a great way for you to bring in your Shared Folders data and create a shared email archive/repository
out of that.
