Cloud specialist, intY, today announced that Microsoft Office 365 is now available, providing SMBs with an enterprise class productivity solution for a predictable monthly cost. The company says that accredited channel partners can take advantage of the powerful web-enabled tools through intY’s portfolio of Integrated Online Services and CASCADE cloud provisioning platform.

“The release of Office 365 is a major milestone in the evolution of cloud computing,” comments Mark Herbert, founder and business development director, at intY. Combining Microsoft Office 2010, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Lync Online, Office 365 provides an intuitive, collaborative working experience that is available at a predictable monthly cost, and which we believe will be a turning point in widespread adoption of cloud services to SME customers.

“Through our strategic relationship with Microsoft, accredited partners can immediately take Office 365 to market, in combination with security and hosted voice solutions to target new business opportunities that might previously have been unattainable. For our partners, the association with Office 365 and demonstrating broad service and support capabilities, is a huge stamp of approval and will build confidence with prospect business customers.”

intY’s Integrated Online Services, incorporates solutions such as hosted Unified Communications, voice and security services. The portfolio, now inclusive of Office 365, enables partners to quickly bring onboard tailored cloud solutions, on demand, in order to provide customers with greater economies of scale and convergence across their entire voice, data, collaboration and applications infrastructure. Partners also benefit from tender, design and deployment support from intY.
