Robson Communications offers Hosted Exchange promotion just in time to offset

VANCOUVER, May 20 /CNW/ - Robson Communications, Canada's leading provider of next generation hosting solutions, has launched a promotion that helps companies save money just in time for the HST increase that B.C. businesses will face as of July 1st, 2010.

To support small to medium sized businesses, Robson Communications has a current promotion that offers companies Hosted Exchange email for only $8.99/month with no setup costs. "Our Hosted Exchange platform is the world's leading corporate email, messaging, and collaboration system for business" said Martin Robson, President and CEO at Robson Communications. "This server-based email platform lets you centrally store your organization's email, contacts, calendars and tasks while advanced collaboration features mean you can share this information whenever and wherever."

Now that HST is affecting businesses, this promotion couldn't be more relevant. "The harmonization of the PST and GST has directly affected our business with increased operation costs on all fronts" said Karim Mitha, President of Metris Distribution Services. "The promotional discount offered by Robson on our new dedicated servers has given us a much needed price break."

With this Hosted Exchange solution, companies receive email addresses with their company domain name, unlimited email aliases, and self-managed security that let you manage your own accounts, passwords and permissions. As stated by Mike Betcher, Partner at Pilothouse Media; "in today's world the ability to communicate electronically is a must. The art of information management, schedule coordination, and web presence literally makes or breaks a business. It takes a team of knowledgeable people to created and sustain an effective information infrastructure". Betcher also points out that many business owners overlook the costs associated with keeping systems running smoothly and up to date. To manage this, Betcher's team looked for a company to take over their information systems. "I first discovered Robson Communications through their website and was intrigued by their "too good to be true" offer", said Betcher. "I made a phone call and actually talked to a live person. And not just any person, but one who was knowledgeable and provided me with the confidence to proceed". But when Robson Communications came back to Betcher with a service proposal, he received something he didn't expect. "I was offered a much better tailor-made solution that took all Pilothouse Media's various components and combined them into one completely secure location that would be managed by a real person. I was shocked at how much money I would save."

Company's like Pilothouse Media now feel confident that their data is secure and as technology changes, Robson Communications ensures systems are continually upgraded. "And now", Betcher adds, " with the HST looming, Robson has provided me with a service agreement that keeps information moving for a cost that keeps our bottom line healthy". Karim Mitha's experience has been similar in appreciation of Robson's service offering. "It's great to see a B.C. based dedicated and managed hosting provider looking to help small to medium sized business recoup some of the added costs associated with the HST."
