Does my business need hosted exchange Is Outlook Anywhere right for me?

Vistra brings you Outlook Anywhere. A hosted email solution for New Zealand businesses from a single user up using the very latest in Microsoft Exchange Hosted email technology.

I already have email, so why do I need hosted email?

Many businesses rely on basic POP3 email accounts from their internet service provider or even web mail. These are not usually ideal for business:

  • No backup and limited spam and virus protection - you run the risk of losing email because it is not stored and backed up properly.
  • You can't share your diary easily with colleagues
  • They're often less secure and reliable than business-class email systems
  • Limited features, for example no support for collaboration
  • Less flexible access to your email via your mobile phone or PDA

Some users who have made the switch say: “It amazes people who haven't seen it before - it is way beyond what POP3 email could ever offer”

Why hosted email is different...

Using the latest mirroring and synchronization technology developed by Microsoft, Vistra's Outlook Anywhere is a hosted email solution that provides server technology and functionality without the need for expensive mail server hardware.

Why hosted email is better...

Outlook Anywhere has huge business benefits:

  • Access information from anywhere
  • Highest security and protection available. Outlook Anywhere includes platinum grade anti-spam and anti-virus services
  • Collaborate with colleagues across multiple sites (shared calendar / resources)
  • Fully backed up. All your email data is backed up daily without fail
