Rochester, NY (PRWEB) December 28, 2006
BlueTie, Inc., the leading provider of business email and calendaring services, announced today that it has earned a four-star rating from PC Magazine in its premiere review of BlueTie Free and BlueTie Pro by the publication's editorial team.
In the review, PC Magazine praised BlueTie for its highly-intuitive and easy-to-use interface, simple and secure file and calendar sharing with BlueTie and non-BlueTie users, and five Gigabytes of email and file storage provided to each user -- the highest capacity of any online business application. The publication also lauded BlueTie for adhering to industry standards such as iCalendar, vCard, and WebDAV, allowing BlueTie users to easily share data with other applications.
"Features work just the way you'd expect, and in my tests I got speedy, consistent performance," said Matt Sarrel, executive director of Sarrel Group and product reviewer for PC Magazine. Sarrel also commended BlueTie for its sophisticated message filtering, which he says sets its service above competitors. It provides users with full server-side virus and spam blockers along with the ability to easily build whitelists and blacklists on an individual and company-wide basis.
"A high ranking from such a reputable industry source as PC Magazine validates that BlueTie is a viable alternative to Microsoft® Outlook and Exchange, providing reliable, secure and affordable collaboration solutions for SMBs," said Kevin Beatson, vice president of marketing and service provider sales.
