Exchange online \ Office 365
As Internet speeds increase and staff want to work more flexibly, in different places on multiple devices the need for an in-house email server reduces as cloud-based solutions can now provide an enterprise-level email system for a reasonable price with Exchange Online.
The same level of service is available to small organisations who can now tap in to sophisticated systems without the up-front costs of in-house hardware and software.
Even very small organisations, or freelancers can now take advantage of these systems and get robust mail and calendaring systems for a low cost. Moving to an Exchange-based system means you can synchronise email, calendar and contacts over various devices and move away from the drawbacks of POP3 and IMAP based mail systems.
You’ll see the messages and replies sent on your smart phone when you are checking your office based computer or travel laptop.
