VSI Exchange-Able ™
Cloud Based Microsoft Exchange
® 2010

eMail, collaboration and scheduling tools have become critical factors to the success of any business. Unfortunately, small- and mid-size businesses (SMBs) often lack a large IT budget or in-house team to implement and maintain the sophisticated messaging software they need. Yet SMBs need this critical toolset in order to succeed in the marketplace. Microsoft Exchange ® (Exchange) is used by the majority of large corporations for their eMail, calendars, contacts and files. Exchange powers the full collaboration functions of Microsoft Outlook 2007, such as group calendars, contacts and file-sharing.

We provide the latest version, Exchange, Microsoft Exchange ® 2010, as a Cloud Based hosted service. You can subscribe to this on-demand service for a low monthly fee, instead of paying tens of thousands of dollars upfront for expensive servers and software licenses, hiring specialist IT staff to install and maintain the system and being responsible for a 24x7 infrastructure. We let you focus on your core business.

Hosted Exchange means that we provide all hardware and software, then run and maintain it for you in one of our Tier-4 data centers. You pay a low monthly fee, and can access your eMail using Outlook® or Entourage® on your desktop, Outlook Web Access in any web browser, or wirelessly from a mobile device such as a BlackBerry® or an iPhone.

What does all this mean to your eMail?

 

People running Exchange as their eMail server typically use Outlook as the eMail client. Among its many advanced features, this lets them:

 

     Securely access eMail remotely via the web or a mobile device like a BlackBerry or iPhone

    View colleagues’ up-to-date calendars and schedule meetings

    Assign and manage company tasks on central ‘to do’ lists

    Manage contact information of employees and customers and access it anytime Exchange is a quantum leap from basic POP3 or IMAP4 eMail, which is most suited for home and personal use, and makes your team much more productive through constant access to eMail, shared calendars and contacts
