Intermedia First to Market with Hosted Exchange 2013, Lync 2013 and SharePoint 2013 Services


Intermedia, a global cloud platform leader for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, announced the release of the company’s hosted Exchange 2013, Lync 2013 and SharePoint 2013 solutions. This continues the pioneering company’s tradition of innovation. Intermedia was the first cloud company to offer hosted Exchange in 2000, the first to market with Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010, and the first to offer private label hosted Exchange.  

Exchange 2013, Lync 2013 and SharePoint 2013 are the newest versions of the world’s leading business communication and collaboration platforms.  The updates available in Exchange 2013 include significant improvements to the end user experience, particularly for mobile employees who access Exchange using a web browser via Outlook Web App (OWA). SharePoint 2013 comes with enhancements to the administration and user experience, plus new options for enterprise users to collaborate using social media features. Lync 2013 adds new features like shared notes and mobility, while also introducing a streamlined look to help users quickly and easily communicate.

Intermedia offers a complete set of cloud services, including hosted Exchange, via its Office in the Cloud™ suite of services. Office in the Cloud combines popular Microsoft services such as Exchange, Lync and SharePoint with Intermedia’s services for backup, mobility, security, voice and more. Intermedia’s Exchange 2013, Lync 2013, SharePoint 2013 services are delivered from the company’s proprietary cloud infrastructure and assures high reliability, backup and security – some of the many reasons why over 50,000 companies trust the cloud services provider.  It also includes account management through the company’s HostPilot® Control Panel that integrates all Intermedia services and solutions in one easy to use control panel, access to 24/7 world-class support and service, SpamStopper/VirusStopper, backup, and support for all mobile devices.

“We pride ourselves on offering the most up to date cloud services in a worry-free, highly available environment.

In that time we made significant development and infrastructure investments to ensure the product would not only be ready for our customers on the day Microsoft launched it, but that it would be at a level that our customers expect from us. We’re pleased to launch these solutions today as part of our Office in the Cloud platform.”
