Intermedia brings next-level backup, continuity, cloud voice, compliance and security to Microsoft Office 365

Big news today! We’re launching several new Microsoft® Office 365® solution offerings. Designed to take the end-user experience to the next level, our solutions enhance Office 365 with integrated backup, continuity, cloud voice, compliance and security services.

How does it all work? We’ve created integrated solution offerings that include SecuriSync® file backup and sharing, Email Continuity, Cloud Voice, Email Archiving, Encrypted Email or Outlook® Backup. Here’s a quick look at how each complementary integration adds value to the Office 365 user experience:

  • SecuriSync backup – Secure Office 365 file sharing, backup, and restoration, with full admin control
  • Email Continuity – Access Office 365 email even during outages
  • Cloud Voice – Enhance Office 365 with a feature-rich enterprise-grade phone system that includes 24/7 support and a 99.999% service level agreement
  • Email Archiving – Get complete Office 365 email preservation with separate infrastructure for greater security

Further, these solutions include our J.D. Power certified support, and Worry-Free migration, as additional value-adds. Additional services from our one-stop shop of 30+ cloud business applications are available as add-ons to any Office 365 solution offering. You can learn more by reading our press release.

Helping solution providers, MSPs, and VARs make money with Office 365

According to MSP Mentor’s 501 Global Edition Study, 70% of Office 365 resellers expressed feeling margin pressure. I asked Eric Martorano, our Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, why he thought this was the case and how Intermedia’s offer can help:

Partner profitability opportunities are limited by purely selling Office 365 without additional value-added services. By incorporating Intermedia services such as cloud voice, backup and continuity, as well as migration and technical support with Office 365, partners build a foundation that enables them to bring exceptional value to their customers and profitability to their business.

In addition to helping the channel differentiate from other vendors, selling complementary products alongside Office 365 increases profitability, as indicated by 73% of the channel, according to The Buyer Persona Institute.

Another reason to become an Intermedia partner

Intermedia gives partners the marketing resources, support, and additional white-labeled products to help them add value to Office 365 and increase margins, while still owning the customer relationship. If you’re not already an Intermedia partner, these new Office 365 solution offerings are a great way to get started. You can learn more about Intermedia’s Private Label model on our website.

I asked Eric why our Private Label partnership model makes selling Office 365 so compelling. Eric puts it this way:

Intermedia provides the channel community with a significant advantage when selling Office 365 – the ability to put add-on solutions in their own name. It doesn’t get much better for partners than the ability to deliver Intermedia’s solutions and award-winning support, with their own brand at the center of it all.
