(The Hosting News) – Affordable, business-class e-mail will now be available in Spain from Dinahosting, an independent provider of Internet business services, which will be the first partner to offer Open-Xchange in Spain.
“Many of our customers ask for easy-to-use and affordable tools to improve their office communication and day-to-day collaboration,” said Carlos Suárez, technical director of Dinahosting. “With Open-Xchange, we can provide our customers business-class webmail and PIM (personal information management) functionality at no additional charge with the choice to upgrade to complete groupware and mobility offerings at any time.”
By offering Open-Xchange`s e-mail and groupware as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Dinahosting enables its customers to work productively with the AJAX-based Open-Xchange anywhere they have access to a browser and an Internet connection. Open-Xchange enables synchronization with Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, native Mac applications iCal and Address Book, as well as most popular smartphones, including iPhone, Nokia and Windows Phone.
With recently introduced “Social OX” features, Open-Xchange also gives users the ability to consolidate any kind of existing webmail accounts—for example from Google and Yahoo — into a folder in Open-Xchange so they can be managed more easily. In addition, contact details from social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn or Xing can be added automatically to the Open-Xchange address book — giving users easy access to the latest contact information within their personal network. Users can now integrate and merge their address books from Google Mail and Facebook into Open-Xchange, as well.
“Dinahosting is the first partner to join our just recently introduced OXrate sales promotion — enabling Dinahosting to move quickly and easily into the SaaS market with Open-Xchange,” said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “Selling complementary and valuable services based on Open-Xchange helps service providers differentiate themselves, increase their average revenue per user and significantly grow profitability. By leveraging our Open-Xchange software, Dinahosting will gain competitive advantage, strengthen their relationship with existing customers and attract new customers.”
Open-Xchange is used by more than 15 million users worldwide as hosted and on-premise business-class e-mail and groupware.
