Red Earth signs on for Google Apps

Central email signature management for companies using Google Apps is now provided as part of Red Earth Software’s Policy Patrol product.

This is claimed to be the first Google Apps email signature program to offer integration with Microsoft Windows Active Directory, therefore allowing companies to configure one template that is automatically customised with the sender's information from the Active Directory.

“More companies are moving to hosted email platforms such as Google Apps to save money and simplify maintenance. While hosted email platforms have advantages, companies are also giving up some control when moving away from on-premise solutions,” said Deborah Galea, co-founder and COO of Red Earth Software.

“Policy Patrol Signatures aims to give back some of that control by allowing companies to manage their corporate email signatures centrally, ensuring that emails include a consistent, company branded signature along with the necessary legal disclaimers.”

In addition to offering Outlook email signature management, Policy Patrol Signatures now also offers central email signature management for Google Apps. It directly integrates with Google Apps, with no client installation or browser plug-in needed. An Outlook plug-in is available if Outlook is used as the email client. Due to Policy Patrol’s integration with Active Directory, email signatures can be automatically customised with the sender’s information, always taking the latest information from the Active Directory.
