Last week, we gave you a sneak peek at the instant messaging and video calling capabilities that are coming in Hosted Microsoft Lync at Rackspace. Today, Hosted Microsoft Lync is available through an Early Access program (beta).
It’s estimated that 80 percent to 90 percent of businesses use some type of instant messaging to connect and collaborate with colleagues and customers. But using third-party instant messaging that does not integrate with your Outlook and Exchange can be cumbersome and a waste of valuable time and resources. This is where Hosted Lync by Rackspace can help.
We’ve grown accustomed to email just working. It’s there when we need it. But what happens when it’s time to send that $1 million proposal that could take your business to the next level, and your email is down?
Stop spending your valuable time managing your company’s email. With Rackspace Hosted Exchange 2013, which is now general availability, you can let the specialists do it for you. You’ll get the same reliable and secure business email that you expect, with the added bonus of the largest mailboxes in the industry and our award-winning Fanatical Support.
If you’re like most of us, the headache of managing your email inbox is the last thing you need. You just need it to “work.” You don’t need to worry about deleting mail to stay under your storage limit, how you’re going to send a big attachment to a colleague, accessing mail while on the go or potential spam and phishing attempts that may compromise your email. And you certainly don’t want to spend time learning a new interface; you just need Outlook to work the same as it always has.
