Intermedia passes 1 million paid users!

It’s National Small Business Week. The week when we celebrate the nation’s small businesses and their critical role in the economy.

Which is why it’s the perfect week for Intermedia to announce that we’ve passed 1,000,000 paid users!

Celebrating small businesses by helping them compete

It’s only fitting we announce this milestone during National Small Business Week. Our Office in the Cloud solves the problem of “cloud sprawl”—which manifests as the challenges of integrating, securing, managing and making mobile the 10+ cloud apps most small companies typically run.

These challenges distract you from running your business, and prevent you from competing with bigger companies who can employ armies of IT people to solve these problems.

Our Office in the Cloud suite provides you with the essential IT services you need to run your business. This includes email, voice, file sync and share, single sign-on, protection, security, mobility and more—all with just one bill, one control panel and one source of support. All of our services are integrated, secure and mobile-ready.

Most importantly for our customers and partners, all our services are backed by our premium support and reliability,. This creates a worry-free experience that keep you focused on what really matters: growing your business.

A huge—and growing—cloud footprint

Our users are spread across 60,000 customers that range in size from 3 to 10,000 users per customer. Unlike many Silicon Valley cloud providers, Intermedia is highly profitable and all of our customers are paying customers.

We now have customers spread across 190 of the 195 countries recognized by the U.S. State Department. And boy, are they busy doing business! Collectively, our customers sent an average of 60 million emails a day.

In 2013, we switched 831 million minutes of talk time for our customers. We now own over 8 petabytes of storage.

From a financial standpoint, Intermedia’s revenue was over $150 million in 2013. And we’re one of the few cloud companies that are growing profitably. (This is a point worth repeating, because in an era when cloud businesses come and go, small business need to know their critical business services are delivered by a company with a solid foundation and a long future.)

It all comes down to customers and partners

Here’s how Michael Gold, president of Intermedia, described the value we deliver to our now-one-million-plus users:  “Intermedia’s one-stop shop model eliminates the complexity that would otherwise overwhelm SMBs and the partners that serve them.”

Our customers agree. Howard Harris is a systems administrator at Palm Beach-based Ram Realty Services. He supports 200 users in multiple offices with our hosted Exchange and Hosted PBX services. And he had this to say: “We value Intermedia precisely because it offers us so many services from a single provider. We love that there’s one control panel and one source of support for both our email and our phones. This makes it simple to manage all our locations from a central point. We focus on growing our business, not running IT.”
