Pipex web hosting division WebFusion has released a new hosting solution that gives businesses the chance to let their staff work remotely and share information across the network – without having the high start up costs often associated with an in-house server. WebFusion Hosted Exchange enables workers to do everything they can do at their desk, securely, from anywhere with an Internet connection.
Packages start from under £50 per month, which gives companies up to five mailboxes and all the usual features of Microsoft Outlook 2003, accessed from multiple offices, home or laptop PC, or any wireless device, including Blackberry. The fully managed product removes the cost of running an in-house server but still enables colleagues to share files and an online calendar across offices. To boost security, an in-built spam management facility ensures unwanted mail is kept away from users’ inboxes.
Working with Microsoft, PIPEX has introduced this latest addition to its extensive product range bringing high-level, flexible, corporate class communication solutions to organisations of all sizes. All Hosted Exchange packages include Microsoft Sharepoint at no extra cost, giving users access to an online shared workspace for applications such as project management, collaboration, CRM tools and version control for documents.
“Companies of all sizes are demanding access to vital information wherever and whenever they are working,” says Mike Read, PIPEX CEO. “With WebFusion Hosted Exchange, we’re helping to fulfil this requirement for mobile working and collaboration, securely and cost effectively. No longer do small and medium sized companies need to provide their own servers and systems; we can provide them with all the communications tools they need.”
As the service is fully managed, regardless of where they log on, customers can rely on fast and secure Internet connections, the power of WebFusion’s tier one network infrastructure and security of its data centres, manned 24×7 by dedicated experts. The channel community will be able to resell WebFusion Hosted Exchange.
