I remember managing Exchange-based servers.  It wasn’t a difficult job, things ran, I ensured backups took place, new accounts created, old accounts deleted.  The only time I was really called into action was when there were other issues.  Hotfixes, Service Packs, hardware failure, the kind of work you hate because you have to do it off hours, evenings, weekends.  The same weekend work you had to put in when doing upgrades and migrations.  Tired of this?  Move it online!

Help improve business productivity without a large up-front investment when you subscribe to one or more of Microsoft’s online services: Exchange Online, SharePoint® Online, Office Live Meeting and Office Communications Online.  Better yet, improve your productivity by moving these services online and ridding yourself of the maintenance of these services and focus on moving forward.

Starting from just $12.74* per user per month, you get all of the functionality and security you need with the enterprise class features you want. Your business needs are ever-changing, now your technology can adjust quickly and easily. Click here to learn more.
