Herndon, VA (PRWEB) March 31, 2010
Apptix (OSE: APP), the leading provider of hosted Microsoft Exchange email, Microsoft SharePoint and VoIP services for businesses worldwide, announced today the launch of Apptix Hosted Exchange for Apple, a new hosted offering that provides native integration of Apple-based communications applications with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. The service provides full business-class Exchange support for all Macintosh® computers running OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard® operating system software (or better). ActiveSync mobile service is also included with each Exchange mailbox for use with the soon-to-be launched Apple iPad™ as well as any Apple iPhone® or Apple iPod® Touch (with Wi-Fi access) mobile digital devices.
“This solution is only the latest in our ongoing effort to be the leading provider of hosted Exchange for Apple users,” said James Bond, Vice President of Software & Product Development for Apptix. “Apptix Hosted Exchange for Apple gives our customers all the features and functionality of hosted Microsoft Exchange, but without the need for software outside of native Mac applications. Our customers can now use Apple Mail, Apple iCal®, Apple Address Book applications and other device-specific applications to collaborate with colleagues and partners while enjoying the same benefits as PC users when it comes to Microsoft Exchange, all at a lower price point.”
Apptix Hosted Exchange for Apple makes it easier for organizations of all sizes, from home offices to enterprises, to integrate Mac® users into their existing IT structure. The service allows IT departments to easily oversee mixed PC and Mac shops without forcing standardization on end-users and dramatically lowers the cost of including Apple devices in a corporate communications plan.

- Full functionality of Microsoft Exchange 2007
- Full support for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard’s Apple Mail, iCal, and Address Book applications
