Office 365 and Hosted Exchange: Which is right for you?

There’s no doubt about it; email is a crucial part of any business in today’s day and age. But did you know that some of the best options available to you can also be some of the most affordable?

There’s no reason at all why you should settle for sub-par email products – particularly during this busy time of year.

Enter Office 365 and Hosted Exchange email service. Two difference, yet robust email solutions that can offer you maximum productivity at an affordable price.

Let’s take a quick look at each of these products, and what makes them useful.

Office 365

Office 365 service is great for companies looking to keep up with the latest in productivity tech. Email in itself is not the focus of Office 365, but rather the access to apps and collaboration. These apps include software you’ve probably already been using for years: Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and so forth (offerings include web-based versions and desktop versions).

Conveniently, Office 365 ensures you’re always updated to the latest and greatest versions, so there’s no reason to be using 10-year-old versions of Microsoft Office products anymore.

Of course, you get access to mail as well (via Outlook as well, if you wish) with 50 GB worth of storage. So if you like everything in one place with access to a multitude of programs to help manage your business operations, Office 365 service may just be for you.

You can see our Office 365 offerings here. Pricing starts at $6.99 per user, per month for access to email and web-based apps.

Hosted Exchange

Thousands of companies already use Hosted Exchange service – it’s been a staple in the business world for years now.

Typically, an Exchange server would require you to host a physical server at the office, but the benefits of Hosted Exchange means that the server is at a secure data center, and you incur no additional overhead of managing your own server.

While Office 365 is an app-centric service, the very core of Hosted Exchange is email. And if you use an email client like Outlook, you can take advantage of all of the features offered by the Exchange service (since they are designed for each other). If you don’t want to use Outlook, you have the option of using the Outlook Web App (practically the same as Outlook desktop, but you can open the web app from anywhere, on any computer).

Email storage is unlimited, and you can easily share contacts and calendars with anyone in your organization.

Our Hosted Exchange offerings are competitive. Pricing begins at $6.44 per user, per month.
