Portal Systems, a network solutions firm, uses the Rackspace Reseller Program to add value and reduce complexity for their clients. The Northern Virginia-based company currently manages about 100 clients under the reseller plan. “We were all ready managing the email accounts for our clients. As a reseller, we could do it all from one control panel without having to log in and out of the individual accounts,” says David Korte, Managing Partner of Portal Systems.
Rackspace resellers also enjoy volume pricing, API integration options, and marketing support without major equipment investments or huge upfront fees. With low monthly minimums and the option of Microsoft Exchange, Rackspace Email, or both, resellers can create a competitively priced and compelling offer to their customers. For David, that means his firm can work with smaller companies who need a few mailboxes and seamlessly scale to meet the needs of large clients needing hundreds of mailboxes.
Since using Rackspace for their clients’ email needs, Portal Systems has also seen the value of email hosting and moved their in-house email to Rackspace, returning the over 300 hours a year they were spending on email maintenance to more mission-critical activities.
