That takes us well past the 1,000 mark, making ours the largest Hosted Exchange reseller network in the UK, which is something we’re very proud of.
Kingston upon Hull (PRWEB UK) 2 July 2012
The UK’s largest Hosted Exchange network got bigger in June with an increase of 75 new IT support companies reselling its business email service to their clients.
Cloud hosting provider Giacom announced just last month that it had reached a milestone with 1,000 resellers delivering Exchange Hosting to business clients under their own brand. By the end of June it had added another 75.
“Even though June got off to a slow start with the Jubilee, we had another great month with 75 new IT support companies coming on board,” said Giacom Business Development Manager Ian Beckwith. “That takes us well past the 1,000 mark, making ours the largest Hosted Exchange reseller network in the UK, which is something we’re very proud of.”
Promoted under Giacom’s MessageStream brand, regionalised IT support companies are provided with the tools to deliver white-labelled Hosted Exchange to their business customers as though it’s their own service. Priced at £2.95 per mailbox per month for full-featured Exchange including 25GB mailboxes and shared calendars, contacts and tasks, the enterprise-class email service allows resellers to compete against the likes of Office365 and GoogleMail whilst building-in long term profits.
Existing reseller Scott Clark from Virtual Networking has been a Giacom partner for a number of years, and explains the impact cloud computing is having on his company. “If there has been one product which has significantly made a difference to our business this is it.
“We earn a significant sustainable monthly income from Giacom’s Hosted Exchange, which is increasing in numbers every month. Long gone are the days of earning small one off fees for POP3 accounts and having all the hassle with spam, viruses and corrupt PST files.”
Lister IT is another Giacom reseller delivering Exchange Hosting to its clients. “We’ve been trying the MessageStream platform for the last few months,” said business owner Chris Lister. “Recently we’ve been rebranding and repositioning ourselves in the market place. The service – the most important thing to us – we have received from Giacom, both sales and technical, have been first rate.
“The Exchange service has worked without a hitch. If you've ever setup your own Exchange Server, you'll know how tricky that can be. The price point is the best on the market for a Hosted Exchange environment giving you a very generous 25GB mailbox. We’re very happy with the service we have received and would recommend Giacom to any serious IT company looking to enhance their productivity.”
Joining Giacom’s Hosted Exchange service as a reseller costs nothing, and there are no tie-ins, no minimum numbers, no targets and no long-term contracts. Giacom also operates end-of-month billing for resellers, meaning mailboxes can be added and deleted during the month without resellers worrying about payments. Instead, mailbox numbers are totalled at the end of each month, and an invoice is created, making the service easier to manage for IT support companies with a number of clients.
