Latest Enhancement from BlueTie Provides Shared Contacts for All Users, Regardless of Mail System

"It’s paramount that the application works the way the user expects it to and we will continue to develop the most robust hybrid solution for businesses on top of the foundation we laid last year" -Shawn Ryan, VP Product and Marketing, BlueTie, Inc.

BlueTie’s groundbreaking Hybrid Exchange 2010 email and collaboration solution, which places users from the same company on two different mail systems, today added shared contacts between users on Hosted Exchange 2010 and BlueTie’s own SaaS email solution. This industry first provides one set of shared contacts for a company regardless of the mail platform used by individual users – ensuring users are never aware that company email is split between two services. Other hybrid solutions lack this form of seamlessly integrated mail systems resulting in limited collaboration between users and inconsistent company wide data.

“Hybrid Exchange 2010 is a tremendous messaging and collaboration tool for the SMB and enterprise,” remarked Shawn Ryan, VP Product and Marketing, BlueTie, Inc. “Adding globally shared contacts is the first in a series of product enhancements we have planned for Hybrid Exchange. Having auto-complete ‘To:’ and ‘CC:’ fields that work company-wide by default, regardless of mail system, is an expectation of all businesses and something not found with other hybrid solutions. It’s paramount that the application works the way the user expects it to and we will continue to develop the most robust hybrid solution for businesses on top of the foundation we laid last year.”

In November 2010, BlueTie enhanced its managed services portal for channel partners enabling users on both Hosted Exchange 2010 and BlueTie’s professional business email suite to be provisioned and managed from a single, intuitive interface.

“Enhancing our Hybrid Exchange 2010 solution will empower our partners with the most powerful messaging and collaboration solution available that adds both value to their customers’ businesses and additional revenue for theirs.” said Ryan. “We continue to look to our channel partners to aggressively market and sell our suite of products and are pleased to update their portfolio to make them more competitive.”

BlueTie’s commitment to the channel has been evident with the launch of its innovative email partner program late summer 2010 and the launch of the Smartbins reseller program earlier this month. BlueTie’s Hybrid Exchange 2010 is the most scalable and cost effective SaaS email solution for the SMB and is the only hybrid email solution that sports globally shared contacts and integration with Hosted Exchange 2010.
