“Crews & Associates has used ZL Technologies’ ZL Unified Archive® Compliance Manager for email surveillance and review since February 2005. Compared to other vendors’ products, ZL Technologies’ is so user-friendly, efficient, and easily-navigable that it’s almost unfair to call the other vendors ‘competitors’ as their products were inferior and complicated.”
Carter Malone, Vice President Of Compliance
Crews & Associates, Inc.
“Through their robust policy management engine and efficient archiving process, ZL’s Unified Archive® has drastically reduced our storage burden and overall associated costs. We have been able to offload much of our storage to lower-cost storage, but we are most pleased with ZL’s extensive and fast search capabilities. The best part is end-users are unaffected and because of ZL’s flexible platform, the deployment was not disruptive in the least bit to our existing environment.”

“A 12 month effort to migrate data from our legacy email archive wasn’t achieving our goals from a time, resource and audit perspective. With ZL Technologies’ DirectExtractTM we were able to migrate more than 87 million emails to Unified Archive® in less than two months with 100% accuracy.”
