Saas – Hosted Email and Collaboration
SaaS (Software as a Service) provides you with a unique way to pay for your use of technology on a monthly basis, instead of as a capital expense, and includes the ongoing support your business needs to keep working effectively.
The advantages of SaaS
Email, collaboration and scheduling tools have become critical factors to the success of any business. Unfortunately, small- and mid-size businesses (SMBs) often lack a large IT budget or in-house team to implement and maintain the sophisticated messaging software they need. Yet SMBs need this critical toolset in order to succeed in the marketplace. Microsoft Exchange is used by the majority of large corporations for their email, calendars, contacts and files. SaaS supporting Exchange powers the full collaboration functions of Microsoft Outlook 2007, such as group calendars, contacts and file-sharing.
Our SaaS hosted Exchange 2010 Solution
We provide the latest version, Exchange 2010, as a part of our SaaS option. You can subscribe to this on-demand service for a low monthly fee – instead of paying tens of thousands of dollars upfront for expensive servers and software licenses, hiring specialist IT staff to install and maintain the system and being responsible for a 24×7 infrastructure. Taking advantage of SaaS lets you focus on your core business. SaaS hosting means that we provide all hardware and software, then run and maintain it for you in one of our Tier-4 data centers. You pay a low monthly fee, and can access your email using Outlook® or Entourage® on your desktop, Outlook Web Access (OWA) in any web browser, or wirelessly from a device like the BlackBerry® or iPhone.
We offer a complete range of add-on features including BlackBerry and ActiveSync for Windows mobile devices so you can instantly activate email service for your handheld. Rather than spending thousands of dollars on your own server, you can use our managed service for just a few dollars a month. You can also add SharePoint 3.0 for document collaboration; Office Communications Server 2007 for increased productivity through secure instant messaging; and file sharing and archiving – from simple message journaling to keep an exact copy of all your message, to compliant archiving, which fulfils regulatory requirements from the main U.S. regulations—HIPAA, GLBA, SOX, SEC, FINRA and FRCP as well as other state/federal requirements).
