Almost every task one performs at work includes the exchange of information in one form or another and much of that is exchanged via email and its attachments. Yet too many enterprises view e-mail as a mature technology that simply accomplishes a rather mundane but necessary task, taking e-mail for granted. They rarely seek to leverage it beyond its most fundamental function. However, the messaging services that form the basis of e-mail are far more valuable than the e-mail itself, and can be used innovative ways to save time and money in our every day tasks.

Email has become something of a critical utility, much like the electricity that powers our offices: it must be available 24 hours a day, it must provide reliable performance, and its cost must be reasonable. However, unlike electrical systems (at least from the user’s perspective), email systems require significant amounts of labor to manage well. Email systems must periodically be upgraded. New hardware must be introduced as organizations migrate to new systems. Security must be maintained and upgraded to protect the system from intrusions. Additional hardware must be deployed to protect against outages that could seriously harm user productivity. Plus, unexpected events, such as spam storms or natural disasters can drive up costs substantially in ways that were not anticipated.
This hosted solution helps organizations reduce the costs of managing and maintaining business systems, which frees information technology resources and enables staff to focus on initiatives that can deliver competitive advantage to the business.
