As the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, Intermedia’s rapid 40% growth is fueled by a powerful partner program, expanding cloud and mobile services, and premier customer support
Intermedia, a global leader in cloud services and the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, announced it now hosts more than 500,000 premium Microsoft Exchange mailboxes on behalf of its customers and partners – becoming the first provider globally to reach this milestone. Continuing to build momentum with a user base that has grown approximately 40 percent year-over-year, Intermedia’s growth is being driven by the channel as well as adoption of the company’s Office in the Cloud™ offering.
Intermedia brings Fortune 50-level IT services to small and medium-sized businesses, giving them the tools and resources to compete like much larger enterprises. The company’s Office in the Cloud offering combines Intermedia’s services for backup, mobility, security, voice and more, with popular Microsoft services such as Exchange, Lync and SharePoint. This integrated suite of cloud communications and collaboration services is managed from Intermedia’s proprietary HostPilot® Control Panel, providing customers a single point of communications control in an intuitive user interface. The company also recently launched Windows Mobile apps for its HostPilot Control Panel and Partner Portal, and now supports all mobile platforms, including iOS and Android.
“Intermedia is one of the largest and fastest growing Exchange providers in the market today, and we are pleased to see them reach the 500,000 subscriber milestone – proving their success at offering a valuable channel program, for partners looking to resell a powerful solution under their own brand,” says Sara Radicati, president & CEO, The Radicati Group, a leading analyst firm following the business email market. “The cloud levels the playing field for SMBs, helping them compete in today’s fast-moving business environment. Intermedia’s cloud services offer easy migration and a powerful set of control panels that are complemented by industry-leading customer support.”
ATG Stores, a family of specialty online stores which was acquired by Lowes last year, has implemented Intermedia’s hosted Exchange 2010 to approximately 175 employees, resulting in a unified communications platform that allows the company to securely manage their data in the cloud.
“ATG Stores operates more than 500 online stores and 3.5 million products, so it is imperative that we have a secure communications platform, as our growing business relies on the accuracy and reliability of our information sharing,” said Gary Rubens, president & CEO, ATG Stores. “Intermedia helped us quickly and securely migrate to the cloud, while also delivering easy-to-use hosted cloud services that give us the premium service and flexibility we need to drive our business forward.”
“At a time when the competition continues to commoditize their offerings, we are broadening our services and support, and enabling SMBs to improve how they communicate, collaborate and manage content,” says Michael Gold, president, Intermedia. “We understand that a customer’s ability to communicate, manage their content and collaborate is vital – and Intermedia offers the cloud services for businesses to do this cost-efficiently, securely and with premium services that not only drive their business forward, but that can be quickly adjusted, keeping up with the ever-changing marketplace. Intermedia’s business-grade cloud services are not ‘one size fit all’ and our control panel offers the control and flexibility every unique business demands.”
