(The Hosting News) – Tips Hosting, a leading provider of ICT solutions in East and Central Africa, has announced that it has launched its CloudLIFE Cloud communications service for business users.
CloudLIFE offer users in all sizes of businesses features like instant messaging and presence; shared and private calendars, address books and file storage; email (including push email, calendaring and address books for all mobile devices supporting ActiveSync) as well as salesforce.com and social media integration.
These features are accessible on multiple devices such as Android phones/tablets and iPhones/iPads as well as PCs and Macs whether users are in the office, on the road or on the other side of the world.
CloudLIFE allows users to enjoy the professionalism of a single address for email and instant messaging as opposed to having to use disparate solutions each with their own interface and address.
“This development from Tips Hosting is very exciting for SMBs because it shows how the Cloud enables them to provision and manage their own communication and collaboration services easily” said Ruth Kang’ong’oi, Editor of CIO East Africa “It’s also exciting for virtual private server hosting providers like Tips Hosting because they can for the first time now offer powerful communication services that compete with Microsoft Exchange and Google, without investing in dedicated hardware.
“The vision of Tips Hosting is to be the genes of excellence in providing cutting edge ICT solutions in East and Central Africa that transform and make a difference in the way people and organizations work. In order to achieve this, we need to enable enterprises to make better, faster decisions in a fiercely competitive market. Our CloudLIFE service is such an enabler”, explains Kevin Oromo, Project Manager for Tips Hosting.
Tips Hosting’s CloudLIFE service is powered by the CommuniGate Systems Unified Communications Hosting Platform. Built for the VPS provider cPanel environment, the platform provides exceptional features with remarkable performance and reliability, without the hardware overheads of other solutions.
