Cable&Wireless Worldwide has announced the launch of its Hosted Exchange service for Channel Partners. Hosted Exchange is a professional business email service that uses the latest Microsoft Exchange 2007 software technology to provide organisations with business-class email, calendar, task lists and contact information – all fully synchronised through standard Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Web Access (OWA).
Hosted Exchange will generate additional revenue growth for Cable&Wireless’ customers through recurring monthly subscriptions, increasing customer loyalty when bundled with broadband services either from Cable&Wireless or alternative providers. As Hosted Exchange is easier to install, and therefore faster to take to market than other similar products, its revenues can also be realised quicker than other solutions.
This is the third Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application launched by Cable&Wireless and alongside Online Back-up and Web IPCCTV, forms part of the SaaS product proposition. Web IPCCTV offers a reliable, cost effective and complete surveillance solution connecting CCTV cameras over the internet allowing monitoring of live images and easy retrieval of recorded footage. Online Back-up delivers cost effective, automatic backup and recovery of information and data, ensuring protection of laptops and desktops from data loss in the event of hard drive crash, natural disaster, theft, virus or accidental deletion.
Ian Thomas, Managing Director, Public Sector and Partners, Cable&Wireless Worldwide, said: “The launch of Hosted Exchange, our third SaaS application, is designed to enrich the solution portfolio we offer our Channel Partners. Coupled with our business grade broadband, which provides assured rates, our customers can run truly business critical applications seamlessly across their networks. We give our customers solutions that historically were only available to large enterprises allowing them to truly differentiate themselves against their competitors. This product cements our commitment to providing customers with value-added propositions that can positively affect the service they deliver, and also their revenues.”
