One simple change can save a lot of time, hassle, and money. By installing the Hosted Exchange e-mail system, CVE Fresno, CVE Northbay and Pantano Excavating were connected like they never had been before. No more wasting time updating deleted and answered e-mails or syncing calendars and contacts. We were able to utilize technology to allow these three offices, which are hundreds of miles apart, to communicate like they were in the next room.

Sometimes it’s the small things that add up to a huge savings. We installed the Hosted Exchange email system for Central Valley Environmental, CVE North Bay and Pantano Excavating, connecting the three companies together in one system. Normally, Microsoft Exchange requires a separate server – an average outlay of $12,000 and annual service costs of another $10,000. We’ve already made that investment for our clients.
Microsoft Exchange saves companies time and money because all the information – emails, contacts, calendar invites – comes to and from a central location. Particularly good if you’ve got three companies that are connected but geographically separated. One great efficiency of this system is if you change something on one device, it updates on other devices. This allows you to sync all your messages (including not seeing deleted items again), and update your calendar and contacts on your PC and all your mobile devices.
The average office worker spends 28% of their time, 672 minutes a week on email. If just 5% of that time is trying to coordinate and update deleted and answered emails from different entry points (business computer, mobile device and home computer) they’ve spent 29 hours this year on completely redundant tasks. By changing CVE and Pantano’s 40 computer-and-device-using employees to Exchange we saved their organization 1,160 hours of productivity in a year. If the average employee makes $15 an hour, that’s an annual savings of $17,400 with this one, simple change.
