Whether you are an executive or a manufacturing line worker, you know that a company's most valuable resource is time. When a user has to access one application—typically e-mail—to send or receive information about a task and another separate application to actually perform the task, the end result is wasted time as well as the risk that managers and executives are left out of the loop.

MasterControl Inc. has designed an e-mail integration that allows everyday and “everymonth” users alike to access MasterControl tasks from any HTML e-mail client, including Microsoft Outlook®. The interface facilitates vastly improved efficiency by providing quick connections via a familiar tool used by all employees every day. With MasterControl keeping them connected, even infrequent users can participate in the process.
Here are just a few ways MasterControl is helping e-mail users overcome common obstacles:
Microsoft Outlook and Other E-mail System Integration Challenges

Inefficient E-mail Systems
More than anyone else in a company, executives are pressed for time. Inefficiencies frequently encountered by executives—such as delayed approval on critical documents, time-consuming change implementation, and similar adverse processes—can cripple any company.
Efficient E-mail System with MasterControl E-mail Integration Software
The MasterControl Outlook integration software allows executives and managers to efficiently complete critical approvals using the same application they are already working with all day, every day: their e-mail. MasterControl allows these users to complete most tasks entirely from the e-mail, making tasks like approvals or process data entry easy to complete. Some more complex tasks have links directly to the task in MasterControl, making them easy to complete and simplifying navigation through the system to find the tasks.
Disconnected E-mail Software Systems
When separate systems are in use employees waste time jumping back and forth between the e-mail system that informs them about tasks and the applications in which the tasks are carried out.
Connected E-mail System
With MasterControl’s Outlook e-mail integration, employees can use a familiar interface to perform common tasks. MasterControl is integrated into corporate environments where e-mail is a vital aspect of daily activities. Many tasks (such as viewing forms/documents, approving forms/documents, or rejecting/signing off) can be completed directly from an e-mail message.
Difficult User Training Management
Employees must complete critical training prior to working on a manufacturing line. Most training systems require companies to devote an overwhelming amount of man-hours and resources to routing documents/forms, signing off training tasks, obtaining approval and signatures, meeting to discuss changes, and searching for and retrieving documents.
The Outlook integration is so easy to use that employees can start producing before they are even trained on MasterControl’s full capabilities. Task lists can be set to appear as messages in users’ inboxes. With the MasterControl interface, users can even reset passwords directly from their e-mail.
