WebHost Automation, producers of Helm, a Windows webhosting control panel, will offer SmarterTools’ collaborative mail server, Web analytics package, and customer support ticketing system in conjunction with Helm 4. Web hosts and other businesses who could benefit from this adaptive method of acquiring mission-critical software can now utilize WebHost Automation to make their purchases.
