#2 Atos, a French company, tried to eliminate email usage in order to improve collaboration. They bought another software firm called BlueKiwi and used its technology to build their own social network for the entire enterprise.
#3 Many leaders, including Thierry Breton, Phil Libin, and Jay Simons, have banned email to help their employees stay productive and stress-free.
