Technology that enables flexibility and
cost-effectiveness is now considered a requirement for SMEs in the current
competitive global market. It adds value to the company in its day-to-day
business transactions. Internet-based hosted services provide a way to reach
this objective. It delivers feature-rich productivity tools to users, while
helping to relieve the burden of managing and maintaining business systems. As
a parallel output, it frees up the IT unit to focus on initiatives that can

vision. The company has a very good track record in developing and delivering
innovative software and services for businesses and individuals. Its wide range
of software and services are designed to meet up to the SMEs’ unique business
needs. It offers software plus services, in bringing together the best of
rich-on-premise applications and flexible online services which gives companies
ready access to the latest messaging and collaboration tools. The best part is
without costly deployment and time consuming maintenance.

reliability delivers 99.9% scheduled up time and carries a financially backed
services level agreement.

capabilities of Microsoft Exchange Online for email and calendaring; Microsoft
SharePoint Online for portals and document sharing; and Microsoft Lync Service
