Partner Program in Latin America Offers Spanish-Language Version of HostPilot

This week at Microsoft’s World Wide Partner conference in New Orleans Intermedia announced an expansion of its highly successful private label partner program in Latin America. Solution providers in Latin America can now offer their customers Intermedia’s Business Productivity Suite of hosted Microsoft products, including hosted Exchange 2007, Outlook 2007, hosted Office Communications Server 2007 and hosted SharePoint 3.0. Providers can offer the turnkey service under their own brand and manage it with a private label version of Intermedia’s end user control panel – now available in Spanish and English. Intermedia also offers Outlook 2007 in Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and 14 other languages.

With so much opportunity for Exchange hosting in Latin America, our work with select partners has been a spectacular success. They asked us to develop our end user control panel in Spanish, and we delivered. We’re committed to helping our partners differentiate and grow their business.

Even during the depths of the recession, our partner program continued its double-digit revenue growth – a trend that accelerated in Q2 2009. Offering Intermedia’s hosted services has proven attractive in a down economy because it offers a recurring source of revenue from partners’ existing customers, rapid sales cycles, and little administrative work.

Our partners include Fortune 500 companies and internationally recognized brands in addition to more than 3,500 small and medium-sized businesses – primarily local managed service providers and other technology firms. We host over 200,000 premium Microsoft Exchange mailboxes – more than any other hosting provider – and over 400,000 mailboxes overall.

Aimed at the needs of small and medium-sized businesses, our Business Productivity Suite is available exclusively from Intermedia. Partners can offer the suite or its individual components, enabling them to tap into the strong global demand for Exchange and other collaboration products.
