BES has been hosting Exchange for businesses in Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich for over ten years. Whilst we still have many happy customers using this model, we are seeing a trend towards Exchange Online and Office 365.
The benefits of Exchange Online are very similar to those of Hosted Exchange with a Microsoft Service Provider like ourselves. We are assisting our clients to migrate to Exchange Online and introducing them to the other myriad of benefits Microsoft Office 365 offers to organisations of all sizes.
If you still have an on-premise Exchange Server, consider the following benefits of Exchange Online:
Enable your staff to communicate whenever and wherever they need to by accessing email, calendar, contacts and tasks across compatible PCs, their iPhones, Android and Google devices.
Microsoft® Exchange Online allows your organisation to take advantage of enterprise-grade communications capabilities without the burden of buying, managing and maintaining a server onsite at your organisation.
How it works:
Exchange Online is designed for organisations that want to get the benefits of cloud-based email without sacrificing the enterprise-class capabilities of Exchange Server.
Built on the same technology as Exchange Server, Microsoft handles the ongoing maintenance of the Exchange infrastructure while providing IT administrators with the control and flexibility they require.
You can choose from a range of options all with pay-as-you-go, per-user pricing with second-to-none data security.
Microsoft Office 365 with Exchange Online offers a quick, affordable, reliable alternative to hosting your own email. A monthly, tax-deductible, per-user business expense or a significant upfront capital expense: you choose!
