Ever since its founding in 1841 in Langensalza, Thuringia, the Beltz Group has remained an independent family-run business that still specialises in publishing. The publishing group releases academic books and magazines for psychology and education (‘Psychologie Heute’), as well as children’s books, including the famous Janosch series. Approximately 450 employees at sites in Weinheim, Hemsbach, Frankfurt am Main, and Bad Langensalza help contribute to an annual turnover of more than €35 million.
The media company archived its emails with a competitor’s solution until the beginning of 2014. Since this failed to meet expectations, Jürgen Krapp, network administrator for the Beltz Group, carried out some research into possible alternatives. The business switched to MailStore Server in February 2014 after a brief evaluation phase.
“We particularly liked how the MailStore solution was installed within two to three hours and you could start using it immediately. Of course we tested everything first but we had no problems throughout the entire test phase. This is exactly how email archiving should be,” summarizes Jürgen Krapp.
Since Beltz replaced another manufacturer’s email archiving solution with MailStore Server, they were able to profit from our competitive upgrade offer, which enables customers to purchase our solution at a special discount rate of 50%.
The project leader describes the migration to MailStore Server in the corresponding case study.
