Case Study

Pygott and Crone Hosted Exchange

SMS Case Studies

Nationwide state agents switched seamlessly from in-house to SMS.


Historically their business email was ran through an in-house Exchange server based at their head office, however the increasing level of email and internet traffic was causing difficulties and the company decided it was time investigate alternative arrangements. By choosing Hosted Exchange it allowed the company to provide employees with email access across all devices, thanks to ActiveSync, without the cost of relocating and updating the in-house server and on-going running charges or Microsoft Exchange licenses.

Don’t take our word for it…

We wanted to give our staff a quick, stable and reliable service without any major disruption to the day to day workings of our branches. The Simply Mail Solutions service we chose gave us the ability to run our email system exactly as we did when we hosted our own Exchange server but with the added benefit of removing the single point of failure which our own system had.

Simply Mail Solutions has provided the final piece in the jigsaw that now means staff no longer have to return to the office to catch up on their emails or to work on our Estate Agency software.

We added the Ultravault as we have a lot of mobile workers so the ability to query and release quarantined emails from any device, anywhere in the world was a real benefit to us.
