Intermedia Expands Business Email Hosting To 25,000 Small and Medium-Sized Businesses
More than 250,000 users now benefit from cost savings, reliability and better support for Microsoft Exchange email
New York, NY (November 28, 2007) - Intermedia, the worldwide leader in business email services, today announced the expansion of its customer base to more than 25,000 small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) in the U.S. The company has more than doubled its Microsoft Exchange hosting business during 2007.
By outsourcing Microsoft Exchange, customers stand to save thousands of dollars in license fees, setup costs and maintenance by outsourcing their Microsoft Exchange platform to Intermedia. The company is now servicing almost 250,000 individual users by providing enterprise-strength Microsoft email, calendar and address book, as well as wireless email access. Intermedia offers uptime guarantees up to 99.999%, with 24×7 customer support from its Microsoft Gold Certified staff.
“Deciding to outsource our email to Intermedia was a financial no-brainer,” said David Cohen, operations manager for Pink Elephant,a group of night clubs with locations in New York City, Chicago, Southampton, St. Barth’s and other cities around the world. “Our club owners, managers and other employees can share the same information and access their email, calendars and contacts from various places around the world instantaneously and all we have to do is pay Intermedia a monthly fee to manage everything for us.”
“Hosted business email is increasingly popular thanks to the rising cost of license fees and the management complexity of Microsoft Exchange,” said Rurik Bradbury, VP of Strategy for Intermedia. “Our service, which is delivered over the Internet for a low monthly fee, is a simple solution, especially for small and mid-sized businesses that have a stretched IT staff or no staff at all.”
