By reselling Hosted Exchange from MessageStream, we are able to deliver more to more customers
Hull (PRWEB UK) 6 December 2011
A CLOUD computing specialist has relaunched its successful MessageStream channel in a bid to provide a further boost to its rapidly expanding reseller network.
Giacom World Networks currently has the largest number of IT support firms selling its flagship Hosted Exchange service under their own brands across the UK and beyond.
But the ambitious company is aiming higher and has now aligned its MessageStream channel with its burgeoning reseller network. Its new MessageStream website has been launched exclusively for IT companies interested in reselling Giacom’s products.
Giacom World Networks managing director Nick Marshall said: “In the past the MessageStream platform has centred on our email security service.
But now we’re aligning it with our extremely busy Hosted Exchange reseller channel, which is now the largest in the UK with more than 600 resellers signed up and reselling the service under their own brand.”
MessageStream provides its Hosted Exchange service to resellers at the low wholesale price of £2.95 per mailbox per month including support, end-of-month billing, account management and migration facilities. It is currently the lowest like-for-like Hosted Exchange price available in the UK and Europe. Hosted Exchange is based on Microsoft’s popular Exchange Server 2010 but is delivered as a cloud-based solution on MessageStrem’s reseller platform.
The uptake of cloud computing is booming across the globe, particularly in the UK, as businesses look for ways of cutting costs by replacing traditional but costly IT server-based set-ups.
One successful MessageStream reseller is Commun IT, which currently hosts several of its clients on the reseller platform.
David Banks, from Commun IT, said: “As an IT support company, we can't afford to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on infrastructure and technology.
By reselling Hosted Exchange from MessageStream, we are able to deliver more to more customers, but at the same time give one-on-one support to our local customers who we have already built a relationship with. Resellers who do not embrace this are not only failing their customers but also their businesses. ”
Nick added: “We provide our highest level of service at our lowest price to resellers. By freeing up time spent on supplying, installing and maintaining premise-based Exchange servers, the MessageStream Hosted Exchange solution allows resellers to grow their business exponentially by securing incremental recurring revenue and lasting client relationships.
With more available time they can rapidly increase their client base and their profits and also receive the backing of our exceptional technical support.
This level of pricing allows IT support companies on the ground around the UK to compete with the likes of Microsoft’s Office 365 service and Google’s Gmail, and makes a good long-term profit by including Hosted Exchange with other services they offer.
In effect IT firms become their own cloud provider as we allow our service to be rebranded.”
