What are the Advantages of Hosted Exchange?

To stay ahead of the game, email, collaboration and scheduling tools have become critical factors to the success of any business today.  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. Exchange powers the full collaboration functions of Microsoft Outlook 2007, such as group calendars, contacts and file-sharing.

Netcetera provide the latest version, Exchange 2010, as a hosted service. You can subscribe to this on-demand service for a low monthly fee of just £6.00/pm instead of paying tens of thousands of pounds 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. We let you focus on your core business.

Hosted Microsoft Exchange 2010 means that we provide all hardware and software, then run and maintain it for you in one of our Tier-4 data centers. For a very low monthly fee, you will be able to 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.

How can this Hosted Exchange help me?  Well, most people running Exchange as their email server typically use Outlook as email. Among many advanced features, it allows them to:

  • Securely access email remotely via the web or a mobile device like a BlackBerry or iPhone
  • View colleagues’ up-to-date calendars and schedule meetings
  • Assign and manage company tasks on central ‘to do’ lists
  • Manage contact information of employees and customers and access it anytime

Exchange is a quantum leap from basic POP3 or IMAP4 email, which is most suited for home and personal use, and makes your team much more productive through constant access to email, shared calendars and contacts.  It helps outsource management duties, lower management costs, heighten security and provides more robust business continuity and data backup.

Businesses can significantly reduce costs by using this approach.  For just £6.00/pm, see how this great product can enhance your business.
