In conversation with Jeffery Liang, CTO
Why was the company set up?
We maintain operations in North America, and mainland China, along with distribution channels in Europe, and Asia Pacific Africa and New Zealand/Australia. The technology behind MessageSolution was first developed in Castro Valley, California, in 2002, while the business world was still reeling from major Wall Street scandals in the financial sector which lead to the implementation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other regulations by U.S. Congress, which required publicly traded companies to implement email archiving for compliance and audit.
Tell us about your first product that was launched?
We assembled an engineering team composed of veterans from Silicon Valley giants like IBM and Sun Microsystems. Alongside this team were graduates of Stanford University and the result of our efforts was MessageSolution Enterprise Archive & eDiscovery Platform, a on-premise enterprise archiving and eDiscovery software system.
What kind of mixed responses have you received from your consumers over the years?
Over the years, a standalone advanced eDiscovery system is added in the product portfolio, along with file system and SharePoint archiving, could storage integration, a complete Office 365 support, Medical Image Archiving, and video surveillance archiving have been added, to increase MessageSolution’s unified archiving and eDiscovery solution value.
How successful was your first project roll on? Share the experience?
As the first Lunix+Windows based cross-platform support email archiving system, it had generated tremendous success for its high performance and cross-platform support. From 2005-2008, sales tripled in the course of 3 years.
What challenges did you face in your initial years? What can your peers learn from it?
The balance between fast growth and proper allocation of resources was one of the areas that peers should watch, and the product innovation is imperative in the initial years.
