Telecommunication Company Retires Lotus Notes and Becomes a Ceryx Customer and White-label Reseller

    TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - Ceryx, the leading provider of secure and
reliable hosted and managed Microsoft(R) Exchange, today announced that
reseller TBayTel has transitioned over 450 of its employees from their
on-premise Lotus Notes environment onto Ceryx's Hosted Exchange platform.
    TBayTel, the largest independent Telecommunications company in Canada,
provides voice, data and wireless service to an area of Northern Ontario
spanning over 300,000 square kilometers. Through DirectIT, a division of the
company that provides managed IT services, the company has been a white-label
reseller of Ceryx's Hosted Exchange solution since 2007.
    "Reselling the Ceryx Hosted Exchange and Collaboration solution made us
recognize and believe in the strategic value of outsourcing," says Angela
Domansky Desserre, Vice President, DirectIT-Managed IT Services. "I was able
to confidently make the case that outsourcing messaging, even for a mid-sized
company like TBayTel, was not only more cost effective but would also deliver
a higher level of service."
    "As we engaged in the process of selling the Ceryx Hosted Exchange
solution we not only developed an intimate knowledge of the product but also
of all the other solutions available in the market today," says Desserre.
"Nobody else could provide the core functionality of Microsoft Exchange and
SharePoint as well as the tools and flexibility required to conform to our
business practices."
    Ceryx worked closely with TBayTel to provide tight integration with
applications hosted on-site at TBayTel, including user synchronization between
the Hosted Exchange environment and the Wallace Wireless(TM) Server being used
for emergency BlackBerry communications.
    "This is the ultimate endorsement of our product and company when one of
our Telecommunications partners feels strongly enough about the solution to
use it themselves," says Gus Harsfai, CEO and President of Ceryx Inc. "For a
company of this size to move off premise to a hosted solution indicates a
strong belief in the value proposition behind outsourcing as well as the value
of the Ceryx solution."
