New York, New York – (The Hosting News) – January 7, 2009 – Email, collaboration and productivity SaaS solutions firm, Intermedia, has released its new Business Productivity Suite (BPS).
The BPS is the first hosted solution to include hosted Microsoft Exchange 2007, Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 (OCS) and Microsoft Outlook 2007 as a bundled offering.
The new solution helps businesses increase productivity and efficiency while allowing greater flexibility and lower risk, all for a lower price point than on-premise software or a la carte hosted services.
Diana Umarova of MGN Capital, a New York-based financial services consulting firm and an Intermedia client remarkled. ”Hosted OCS from Intermedia has really helped us communicate and collaborate more efficiently. Its tight integration with hosted Exchange to provide real-time presence information within Outlook makes our hosted Exchange service far more powerful effective than Exchange on its own.”
The launch of BPS extends Intermedia’s long track record of firsts in the hosted messaging and collaboration space. Intermedia was the first provider of hosted Microsoft Exchange 2007, first to market with hosted OCS 2007, and now the first to market with a true hosted productivity suite. The company credits these achievements to its Intermedia-developed HostPilotÂ® platform, a robust and flexible system that offers far more functionality than other locked-down platforms. This enables Intermedia to deploy new hosted services to its customers far faster than other hosting providers – or even Microsoft.
In addition to offering bundled Microsoft Exchange 2007, Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 (OCS) and Microsoft Outlook 2007 in the Intermedia BPS, Intermedia’s offering includes other notable industry-leading capabilities:
- Inclusive copies of Microsoft Outlook 2007 and Entourage 2008 with its BPS plans
- BlackBerry and iPhone Synchronization as with all Intermedia offerings
- Award winning control panel as with all Intermedia offerings
- Month to month contracts
- High SLA, 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Email compliance, archiving, encryption, delegated administration and other options offered solely through Intermedia
