BLACKSBURG, Va. (PRWEB) June 2, 2006
Webmail.us, the leading provider of email hosting services to small, medium, and geographically dispersed businesses, experienced rapid growth during the past six months, adding 10,000 businesses to its email hosting system. The company reached this milestone on Wednesday, May 31st, and now hosts email for more than 20,000 businesses worldwide.
“We have been growing at an increasing rate for several years now but our growth has increased dramatically in the last six months,” explained Patrick Matthews, chief executive officer at Webmail.us. “We’re seeing growth in both the retail and reseller sides of our business, even as competition from very large companies continues to intensify. We attribute the increased growth to our email-focused business strategy and the people that work here at Webmail. We believe that there is room in the market for a company focused on this niche. If you want reliable email, your best bet is to work with a company that eats, sleeps, and breathes reliable email. So while you will continue to find a number of companies providing email solutions in one form or another, small businesses and service providers continue to turn to us because of our unique focus on email hosting and our ability to deliver quality services.”
The company also has an aggressive product development roadmap, with several product releases on the near term horizon. Specifically, they plan to launch the first version of their next generation webmail platform, codenamed Harbinger, in July. Several new features and enhancements will be integrated into the platform after that. “We now have the resources we need to build the products and services that our customers want. Our customers will continue to benefit from our focus as we continue to reinvest in email-focused R&D initiatives,” said Matthews.
