Hosted Exchange – Can You Afford Not To?
- More than a quarter of SMBs believe that sales would be impacted after only 1 hour without email.
- A third of major in-house email outages leave staff without email for more than 24 hours.
- 35% of email outages come as a result of server failure.
Email is now an essential business tool, so downtime is a serious problem. This is why companies are increasingly turning to ‘hosted’ Microsoft Exchange. Here are four compelling reasons:

As well as vastly superior uptime, quick implementation and easy maintenance, hosted Exchange also offers smaller companies a much lower total cost. Consider the following comparison:
