Company Furthers Mobility Foothold in Cloud Services Market
Intermedia, a global leader in cloud services and the largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, today announced the company’s proprietary end-user control panel – My Services – is now available as a mobile app. Mobile My Services enables end users of Intermedia’s cloud services – such as Exchange email and Lync instant messaging – to simply and securely manage settings such as their passwords, contact information and “out of office” message. The app also features an automatic email configurator to walk users through the set up and configuration of hosted Exchange email on their iPhone.
“So many executives tell us they were headed out of the office for a business trip or vacation – and realized half way to the airport that they hadn’t set up their email ‘out of office’ reply,” says Michael Gold, president, Intermedia. “Likewise, we hear often from IT managers that they’re spending too much time configuring users’ mobile devices – or helping those users adjust basic settings like passwords. Mobile My Services was built to solve issues like these. The app provides a simple way for users to get the job done when they’re on the go. IT managers and other account administrators like it because it’s secure and frees up their time for higher value work.”
The mobile app is available on iPhone and iPod Touch devices with iOS version 3.0+. Versions for iPad and other mobile platforms will be released in the future.
Using mobile My Services, end users can securely perform many common and useful transactions on the go from their mobile device, including:
- Changing their password and contact information
- Changing and setting their out of office message for their email
- Setting up a photo to be used as a personal avatar for Outlook and Lync Secure Instant Messaging
Intermedia’s award-winning HostPilot® Control Panel is also available as a mobile app. HostPilot Control Panel provides business owners and IT managers with a single point of control over their Intermedia cloud services. Its intuitive features enable technical administration to be delegated to non-technical staff.
