Outlook makes Exchange 2007 Hosting a preferred choice for all users. For years, large organizations have benefited from e-mail and collaboration features of Outlook running on Exchange Server. These features are now available to Small and Medium Businesses at a fraction of the cost.
Small to medium companies are starting to see clear advantages of hosted application delivery for software solutions like Microsoft Exchange 2007 Hosting. Even large corporations recognize the benefits of outsourcing.
Up until a few years ago, small and medium companies had few options for enabling business messaging for their organization. Now, with Intermediation Email Exchange Hosting, any organization can take advantage of the same tools and benefits previously reserved for large enterprises. For a low, fixed and predictable per user monthly fee, you can reap the benefits of Exchange for comprehensive messaging and collaboration, in an enterprise-class infrastructure with guaranteed service levels.
If you require collaboration - and any organization with at least a few employees does - Exchange Server with Outlook client is your best option. Unfortunately, an in-house installation and maintenance of an Exchange Server is too costly and complex for small or even medium companies. Exchange is a server-based application that requires an Active Directory infrastructure. An investment of thousands of dollars is required for hardware, not to mention knowledgeable IT personnel to support it. Research shows that managing a typical e-mail system for a 100 person company takes 85% of a senior technician's time. Due to its advanced features, Exchange takes more effort to configure and manage, especially when you require features like Internet access.
