Burlington, MA, April 15, 2008 – 123Together.com, the leading provider of hosted enterprise-class messaging and collaboration solutions such as hosted Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP1 and hosted Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, today announced the release of Service Pack 1 for hosted SharePoint 3.0 to small and mid-size businesses (SMBs). This first service pack release provides businesses with increased performance, added stability and security enhancements.
123Together.com’s hosted messaging and collaboration customers can now take advantage of new document libraries, lists, and meeting workplace sites and enjoy enhancements to search capabilities, web discussions and browser-based customization. Serving as a central point of data dissemination for such things as documents, task lists, and image libraries, employees can create, share and manage project timelines, data lists, updated files, corporate photography, newly created web pages and intranet sites.
This enterprise-class collaboration tool provides businesses with increased individual and team productivity, collaboration and document sharing. It has traditionally been used by larger organizations with national or international reach since Windows SharePoint Services is not limited by geographic boundaries and stands as a central location from which to store and manage information. SMBs can also benefit from SharePoint’s collaborative features but have, until recently, been unable to do so due to the high cost and deployment delays involved in setting up servers in-house.
123Together.com’s hosted SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 now enables SMBs to take advantage of best-in-class collaboration to increase team productivity and business process efficiency without the need to incur upfront expenses, conduct additional training of IT staff or purchase of new hardware and software. Customers can sign up and collaborate with coworkers immediately on a shared or dedicated server with guaranteed uptime of 99.9% on shared servers and 100% on dedicated servers. 123Together.com also provides its hosted SharePoint Services customers with phone, email and online chat technical support 24 x 7 from its corporate headquarters in the United States. Customers’ questions are answered by hosted SharePoint experts in real time.
“We pride ourselves on providing small and mid-size businesses with the most current versions of our hosted messaging and collaboration solutions, such as hosted SharePoint Services 3.0 with Service Pack 1, as soon as they are available,” said Ravi Agarwal, senior executive officer, 123Together.com division of mindSHIFT Technologies, Inc. “Our current customers can be assured that they are utilizing enterprise-class hosted services with the most robust capabilities. Businesses who have previously been hesitant to deploy Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 without the benefit of Microsoft’s service pack enhancements can also have immediate access to hosted SharePoint for a small monthly fee and with guaranteed uptime.”
