New SaaS Email Archiving From LiveOffice Hits Reseller Channel

LiveOffice Helps VARs Deliver Cloud-Based Email Management to Small and Midsize Businesses

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - July 7, 2008) - Today at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), LiveOffice, the leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) email archiving and Hosted Exchange 2007 solutions, announced that its recently introduced Mail Archive service is now available to value-added resellers (VARs). The email archiving solution, which fully integrates with on-premise or hosted Exchange, enables resellers to meet their clients' mailbox management, compliance and e-discovery needs without requiring them to deploy and manage the system on their own.

"With the email explosion and growing interest in SaaS solutions, VARs are looking for ways to simultaneously meet their clients' immediate messaging needs, while also expanding their portfolios to include SaaS solutions," said Matt Camassa, director of business development for LiveOffice. "By partnering with LiveOffice, VARs quickly benefit from our decade of experience in developing, marketing and supporting SaaS email solutions, while enhancing their bottom line with new streams of recurring revenue. At the same time, they are able to help their clients rapidly deploy messaging solutions that meet their unique business, storage, compliance and legal requirements."

According to a February 2008 Forrester report titled, SMB SaaS Adoption: Road Bumps Ahead in 2008, "In 2007 SaaS adoption in the U.S. SMB sector jumped a remarkable 58%.(1)" In addition, Gartner notes that, "All companies should be doing some kind of email archiving.(2)" Aligned with these trends, LiveOffice Mail Archive puts a SaaS email archiving solution at the fingertips of VARs, who are able to couple the offering with their valuable consulting expertise, which so many SMBs demand. By combining this know-how with LiveOffice's advanced archiving solution, VARs are able to deliver tremendous value to their SMB clients, many of whom are grappling with overflowing mailboxes and immediate e-discovery demands. Mail Archive is especially attractive, since it requires no investment in hardware or software and can be deployed in just days.

"We constantly strive to identify value-add products and services for our broad customer base. We are excited to add the LiveOffice Hosted Exchange 2007 and Mail Archive solutions to our portfolio," said Ali Din, director of strategic development for En Pointe Technologies (NASDAQ: ENPT), a leading technology solutions provider that offers IT products and services nationwide. "We evaluated multiple offerings and were won over by the flexibility of LiveOffice's technology and services, while being equally impressed by the SaaS expertise of their knowledgeable and attentive partner team."

Pricing, Availability & Unlimited Mailbox Option

Available now to VARs through the LiveOffice Partner Program, Mail Archive offers unlimited storage and retention of all emails and attachments for a flat, monthly per mailbox fee. In addition, resellers can combine LiveOffice Hosted Exchange 2007 and Mail Archive to provide their clients with "Unlimited Mailbox" capabilities, which free companies from the limitations of mailbox quotas and the liability caused by the proliferation of PST files. Plus, this bundled offering enhances employee and operational productivity by enabling end users to search and access their personal archive of old emails and attachments at any time, even if the messages are no longer in their inbox or stored on the company mail server.
