Jul. 28, 2008 10:00 AM
Intermedia announced that it has surpassed 300,000 customer
mailboxes hosted. In the past six months, Intermedia experienced growth in the
number of accounts with fifty or more mailboxes, demonstrating the growing
penetration of SaaS services into the midmarket. Further, over the past year,
Intermedia also became a BlackBerry Alliance Member; was honored with the
MSExchange.org Reader's Choice award; and launched two major offerings: the
hosted Office Communications Server 2007 service and Intermedia Secure Mail
email encryption. Intermedia is a Microsoft Gold Partner, a provider of
Microsoft Exchange 2007 software as a service (SaaS) and one of the first
companies to offer Microsoft Entourage 2008 as a free download to customers. Achieving
these milestones signals a landmark year for Intermedia.
"We are excited to have met aggressive goals in such a
short amount of time," said Serguei Sofinski, CEO, Intermedia. "Our achievements speak volumes to our
customer satisfaction, and we're looking forward to continued success and
additional opportunities to empower our customers and our partners."
The SaaS market is experiencing growth and Intermedia has
capitalized on this opportunity by making strategic business and solution
decisions to support existing customer demands and its vision for tomorrow. For
example, in addition to becoming a BlackBerry Alliance Member, Intermedia has
met the demands of enterprise mobility by offering early support for email
solutions on the iPhone 2.0 through ActiveSync capability. Its efforts have
resulted in BlackBerry accounts growing 100% in the past six months and Windows
Mobile ActiveSync accounts growing by 375% in the past year. Overall, the company has seen 122% growth in
the total number of wireless accounts.
