  2. 2. The concern ● ERP and existing systems  automate only a portion of  the actual needs ● Unable to function promptly  and implement new ideas for  short of software ● In­house team fail to provide  quality, timely and  economical solutions ● External software vendors  not prompt; costly  Page 2 Copyright (C) 2009­2010  RAD Solutions Private Limited

  8. 8. Adopting tmail ● A highly effective alternative of  email, phone or fax ● A task flow system for managing  unplanned adhoc tasks ● Quite easy to adopt ­ instantly ● tmail can handle most of the manual  tasks in an organization smoothly ● At www.gcollab.com, it is free for all  types of use, whether commercial or  personal ● Can be installed inside an Intranet  Page 8 Copyright (C) 2009­2010  RAD Solutions Private Limited
