IT-GRAD Company offers its solutions on organization of business mail based on Microsoft® Exchange Server. Exchange is a safe and reliable corporate platform to exchange messages which provides great abilities of work with email and calendar; it guarantees high security and flexibility.

Now you can:

  • have a personal email  with user friendly interface without too much advertisements, unwanted announcements and limitations with a unique name. You can create mailboxes for all the members of your family, small company and partners.
  • choose a short and memorable address at your choice.
  • automatically schedule appointments. Do you want to organize any important for you event quickly and easily? Now the program will do it for you! You just need to choose time, place and participants and the program will automatically check guests’ free time, offer the most convenient meeting time and notify all the participants. They will just need to confirm this time or to suggest a new one.

We offer mailboxes with a personal domain name (for example, name@surname.ru) and aliases (alias is a pseudonym, an alternative [optional] name). You can use these alternative addresses instead of your primary email address so that it will not be listed in spam mailings, for example, when making purchases through online store. Correspondence incoming to the alias is automatically redirected to the primary mailbox. Just disable or remove unneeded additional address after use.

As it is known, an average user uses MS Office package abilities at less than 5% of its functionality; this statement is also true for Microsoft Exchange. In order to fully deploy Exchange corporate mail qualified specialists and sufficiently long implementation time are required. At the rental SaaS model, you can connect email based on Exchange for your company and enjoy the benefits of its use without long waiting and large financial costs. Connection period is 1-2 days depending on the number of your mailboxes.

Please note that our Exchange corporate mail hosting service provides great opportunities for effective business and collaboration organization in addition to direct mail service. Please read below which “turn-key” options you can get in their work.

Now you are always connected, no matter where you are!

Microsoft Exchange Business Mail Abilities

As it is known, an average user uses MS Office package abilities at less than 5% of its functionality; this statement is also true for Microsoft Exchange. Here are the main features of Exchange server which will help you to use it at 100%:

  • Access to email management, calendar and tasks from a single mailbox from the familiar Outlook program.
  • Access from mobile devices.. Most cell phones support ActiveSync protocol which will allow you to work with email regardless of your location; you can quickly reply to emails, use corporate contacts directory and synchronize your contacts. And thanks to Push-mail technology all the messages arrive immediately, you do not need to check email manually and wait for its loading.
  • Calendars and invitations processingYou do not have to worry about your schedule relevance - proposals for new appointments and changes will come automatically and you can choose convenient for all the meeting participants time, appoint, move and notify about the time change in just a few actions or in automatic mode.
  • Contacts and photographs. You have met a new partner at the exhibition or conference? Write down his contact information in the phone, take a picture with the integrated camera and attach the photo to the contact - in a moment all this information will already be at your work computer. You do not need to rewrite information manually and to remember how the new partner looks like anymore.
  • Remote access. For a long time, all the Exchange Server abilities can also be used outside the corporate network; it requires only access to the Internet (GSM-network, connection via Wi-Fi at the airports, hotels and restaurants, etc.).
  • Security. . It is safe! All the data are transmitted in encrypted form. If you do not enter the password on your computer or mobile device access to the server with information will be blocked. In case of loss or theft of the communicator you can (via web interface) initiate deleting all the information from the device by yourself so that it will not come into the hands of competitors or criminals.
  • Protection against viruses and spam. Highly professional and reliable Microsoft Forefront Security is used.
  • Outlook Web Access.This tool allows you to access your mailbox through a standard browser (you can use Internet Explorer, Safari and FireFox) regardless of your location, you only need to have access to the Internet (GSM-network, connection via Wi-Fi at the airports, hotels and restaurants, etc.). You can access your mailbox through a standard web browser, for example from the Internet cafes. And if there is, for example, a voice message in your mailbox you can make your mail server call to any phone number (of the same Internet cafe) in order to listen to this message.
  • Outlook Voice Access. Unbelievable but it turns out that you can call to your mailbox, listen to messages and even reply to a mail and do many other things (only in English yet). 
  • Unified Messaging – voice messages and faxes. If you have missed a call, Exchange Server will enable an answering machine, record the message and send it to you in the form of email with an attached sound file. The same goes for faxes: now you can get rid of unnecessary papers - fax messages also come into your «Inbox» in the form of emails with attachments.

Advantages of Exchange Mail Server Hosting

Today, almost all the companies regardless of their size use email because email is a great tool for building effective business communications: communication with customers, business partners, suppliers, and for sharing documents with them. It is also an effective tool for organizing interaction between the company's employees: sending documents, planning events using calendar, saving correspondence history.

There are several ways to organize email system inside the company:

  • Use free email systems (yandex.ru, gmail.com, mail.ru and others.)
  • Organization of your own mail server
  • Hosting the mail server from the provider

But not all the variants are an ideal solution for building an effective email system.

Free email does not meet safety requirements, does not have the necessary business functionality and does not have a positive impact on the company’s image.

Using your own email server implies high costs

  • Purchase of equipment
  • Purchase of the necessary licensed software
  • Allocation of IT specialists for service and performance support

IT-GRAD Company offers the service on hosting mail server, business mail based on Microsoft Exchange Server.

If earlier advantages of organizing mail based on Microsoft Exchange Server could be used only by large companies with sufficient funds for independent deployment of this solution, now these advantages are available even for small business.

  • Access to email management, calendar, contacts and tasks from a single mailbox using the familiar Outlook program.
  • Centralized data storage.
  • Secure viruses and spam protection.
  • Access to mailbox from mobile devices.
  • Access to mailbox through a standard browser if an employee is out of office.
  • Full integration with other Microsoft applications.
  • Monitoring the degree of employees’ occupancy through the shared access to calendar and tasks.
