REMAX Quebec

RE/MAX is the leader in real estate in North America. The spectacular growth of the RE/MAX network owes to a revolutionary, logical and powerful concept that profoundly impacted the real estate industry and changed how real estate business was conducted. Industry members and consumers readily recognize RE/MAX as the organization with the best agents. Indeed, RE/MAX groups together highly skilled agents for whom real estate is the top priority.


RE/MAX Quebec wanted to replace its existing mail system to best fit the following needs :
Unified mail, address books and calendars administration : With more than 3,500 users throughout Quebec, the domains management was a big challenge. Previously, numerous email solutions were used by agents. RE/MAX wanted to offer its agents a unique collaboration suite for the management of their emails.
POP to IMAP : Users fetched their emails using POP. Whenever emails were lost, they were impossible to retrieve.
High performance and security standards.
Ensure the security and durability of email data : Given the high number of users, RE/MAX needed flexible backup and restoration methods.
Transparent migration for the users : Given the number of users and the heterogeneity of email accounts, the transition towards Zimbra was a key challenge. The transition could not affect the work of the employees


RE/MAX opted for the Zimbra Collaboration Suite to meet these key challenges. With this solution in hand, the company benefits from :
a unified administration platform for all user accounts : Multiple domains administration is available in Zimbra ;
high performance and security standards : Zimbra uses popular Open Source software ;


  • • The Web Zimbra interface : Accessible through any given Internet browser, the AJAX Zimbra Web interface is the most powerfull on the market.
    • Zimlets :
    Through Zimlets, RE/MAX can integrate other solutions with Zimbra.
    • An Open Source solution :
    Zimbra is an Open Source software. RE/MAX can benefit from a scalable solution while being independent from its IT supplier.
    • A well supported solution :
    Zimbra can be installed on any Operating System.
