Are you using an email service like Gmail, Hotmail, BT, Tiscali, AOL or similar as your business email? We have a hosted email solution that is perfect to improve both your connectivity and response times as well as the image you portray to your customers.
Flexible – Affordable – Secure – Professional – Great connectivity
You have probably heard about the “Cloud” services that are increasingly popular. Moving your email to the cloud is something we believe could really benefit your business.
Our premium product starts at just £6 per mailbox per month with no ties and you can start with just one mailbox!
If you don’t have a file server to run your email system, most small businesses and sole traders often rely on POP3 mailboxes to download email to a desktop PC which can be very inflexible and unreliable. Local files like this struggle when the mailbox gets large and it is difficult to get the same emails on your phone – even when you do, they are not then synchronised. If the email file gets corrupted or the PC is damaged, all your emails can be lost. Even if you keep a copy on the server, your calendar, tasks and contacts as well as copies of your sent emails can still all be lost without a reliable backup.
Many people rely on specific providers such as AOL, Google Mail or Hotmail that are regularly targeted by hackers and don’t always portray professionalism in an address. Likewise others use email addresses with their broadband provider, so they then can’t easily change who they connect up with.
With our solution you can also show your contacts the same email address at all times, no matter how you access your emails. If you already have a domain name, small alterations to its settings can link to this email service – if you don’t already have a domain name, they really are inexpensive, so contact us to help. If you have a web site, it isn’t affected. Also, if you have existing advertising with an old email address, you can normally just redirect incoming emails to this new service.
Even if you already have an email address using your domain name, our solution can still give you lots of benefits, not just from improved email, but from being able to share calendars, tasks and more.
