With the head office of Wholesale Electric located right in "Hurricane
Alley," the threat of a natural disaster destroying communications
infrastructure was a driving influence in moving to the Ceryx hosted solution.
"A primary concern of ours, especially since the devastating Hurricanes

"As a Microsoft hosting partner, we can deliver incredible value in
today's market," says Gus Harsfai, president and CEO of Ceryx Inc. "Our
partner licensing model allows us to create unique plans that fit the profile
of an organization and work to blend costs down. At the same time we can
develop solutions - like our proprietary Anti-Virus and SPAM filtering tools -
that builds on top of, and enhances the Microsoft Exchange solution."
Once the decision to move to Ceryx was made, the migration from their
existing email system to Ceryx was painless.
Ceryx was able to tailor a "rolling" migration which allowed for a
user-by-user transfer from an existing POP3 system, with no interruption in
overall messaging. And migrating to Ceryx's proprietary Customer Centre
administration portal was just as smooth. "As for the IT personnel, it was a
quick, five-minute introduction and training session before they were
comfortable using Ceryx's Customer Centre for overall administration," Fife
Fife says Ceryx's Hosted Exchange solution has dramatically increased
Wholesale Electric's communications efficiency, allowing them to concentrate
on its core business and not worry about mission-critical messaging.
