Coldwell Banker Gundaker is the St. Louis area's number one residential real estate services firm. It is owned and operated by NRT Incorporated, the nation's leading residential real estate brokerage company and a subsidiary of Cendant Corporation (NYSE: CD). With over 3,000 Sales Associates in 38 offices, CBG serves more than 200 communities in St. Louis City and County, St. Charles, Jefferson, Franklin, Warren, and Lincoln Counties and most of east central Missouri. “Our business relies heavily on our Internet presence and the ability to communicate with our clients electronically,” explains Bill Raines, IS Director at Coldwell Banker Gundaker.

In early 2003, CBG had to deal with an email management crises. Like most large enterprises today, they realized that unwanted spam was costing the organization significant amounts of money and resources. “At one time, more than 85% of our incoming mail was either unsolicited advertising or had offensive content,” Raines continues. CBG was receiving an average of 55,000 e-mails each day! CBG determined they needed a powerful yet flexible enterprise anti-spam solution. Management required a system that would provide effective spam detection without causing a loss of valid email (false positives), and a method of mail policy enforcement. Network administrators required a low maintenance system, but flexible enough for individual configuration. Evios cuts CBG’s mail volume over 90% each day!

CBG selected Evios for their enterprise anti-spam solution due to its exceptional spam detection capabilities, low administrative requirement, and flexible configuration options. Effective default settings and simple installation provide a seamless integration without a network outage and offer immediate results. “Evios has saved our organization time and money,” Raines continued. “I would highly recommend Evios to other organizations wanting to get rid of their unwanted email.”
