Apptix makes it easy and cost-effective for larger companies to experience the reliability and convenience of cloud-based hosted solutions while maximizing their use of previous license investments
Herndon. VA (PRWEB) November 16, 2011
Apptix (OSE:APP), the premier provider of hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions, today announced it is authorized to participate in the Microsoft® License Mobility program. The program allows organizations to apply certain server licenses towards Apptix cloud-based services – significantly lowering the costs associated with additional Microsoft licenses.
Microsoft License Mobility makes switching to Apptix hosted services even more cost effective for organizations that have already invested in server licenses. Valid licenses purchased through an Enterprise Agreement with Software Assurance can be applied to Apptix services, resulting in a significant savings on monthly service fees for Apptix Hosted Exchange, Dedicated SharePoint, Web Conferencing, and Secure Instant Messaging solutions.
“Apptix makes it easy and cost-effective for larger companies to experience the reliability and convenience of cloud-based hosted solutions while maximizing their use of previous license investments,” said David Ehrhardt, President & CEO of Apptix. “License Mobility is of particular benefit to mid-market and enterprise customers – many have previously invested in Microsoft licenses, but are shifting to Cloud-based services for their IT needs.”
Apptix’s participation in the Microsoft License Mobility program is part of a multi-year effort to move up market supporting mid-market and enterprise customers. This ongoing effort has driven impressive gains for Apptix, with mid-market and enterprise now representing 65% of revenues.
