Simply Mail Solutions, the leading email hosting company, announced the launch of SharePoint 2010 Foundation to their shared platform.

Commented Keith Pritchard (CTO):

“With the launch of Exchange 2010 earlier this year the addition of SharePoint 2010 was the logical step for us to take. As with Exchange 2010 the technical changes for this hosted platform were considerable and following an extensive evaluation period a solid integration with Exchange 2010 could be ensured.”
“As with Exchange 2010, Microsoft has worked considerably on an improved web experience for users. Not only does SharePoint 2010 now support multiple browsers including Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer, it also allows easy navigation and editing of documents via the ribbon tool bar that users know from working in Microsoft Office 2010.”

The versatile collaboration platform seamlessly integrates with Exchange 2010 and allows users to share information across the entire organisation. Especially interdepartmental project teams can benefit from tracking tools to follow the progress of their projects even if they are in different locations making an effective and efficient collaboration possible.

Especially for small and medium sized enterprises, hosted services are extremely cost- effective. With SMS’ Hosted SharePoint 2010 services for instance, customers can create an intranet and collaboration platform within minutes without the upfront investments for servers and ongoing maintenance.
