Major Global IT Company to Ban E-mail

London:  Atos, one of biggest information technology companies in the world with over 80,000 workers in 42 countries, will soon ban e-mails because it says 90 percent of them are a waste of time.

Atos, headquartered in France, said too many employees waste time dealing with irrelevant e-mails, according to the Daily Mail.

The company would phase out e-mailing within 18 months, and said it wants people to spend more time talking to each other -- either on the phone or in person.

Atos's 56-year-old chief executive officer Thierry Breton said: "It is not right that some of our fellow employees spend hours in the evening dealing with their e-mails."

Breton said only 20 out of every 200 e-mails received by his staff every day turn out to be important.

"The e-mail is no longer the appropriate tool. It is time to think differently," he said.

He said the main problem was people switching to a "useless" e-mail while they were carrying out a far more important task.

Breton said a real-time messaging interface like that available on Facebook would be preferable to e-mail.
