(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Bynari, Inc., the leading developer of messaging and collaboration software, announced today two new programs to help Enterprise businesses move to a groupware and collaboration software solution without the upfront costs typically associated with implementing an in-house email and collaboration solution. SaaS-on-Premise and the Trade-up-Server programs are two new initiatives that allow businesses to migrate to Bynari Collaboration Suite (BCS) with minimal investment. BCS is a scalable and easy to use all-in-one email and collaboration solution for enterprise customers who would like to utilize full Outlook groupware functionality without Microsoft Exchange Server.
SaaS-on-Premise: “BCS is Bynari’s flagship product. BCS is a carrier-class email suite and the only true and proven alternative to Microsoft Exchange that integrates reliable open-source components and Bynari’s own in-house developed groupware server software,” says Joel Ammor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Bynari. “BCS offers SaaS-on-Premise, a solid platform for deploying mission-critical messaging solutions at an affordable price. Under the SaaS-on-Premise program, companies choosing BCS for their email and collaboration needs will get huge discounts in terms of software licensing and subscription fees.”
By taking advantage of the SaaS-on-Premise program, companies will have the ability to offer their employees a complete collaboration solution with advanced groupware features at a fraction of the cost of comparable proprietary solutions. With the SaaS-on-Premise program, BCS is deployed on-premise but priced on a software-as-a-service basis, making it a great option for companies that have concerns about hosting their data elsewhere as well as companies that cannot afford the big expense of a major purchase.
“We’ve now made BCS affordable for any size large company. Customers pay an extremely affordable setup fee, then they are essentially paying a monthly, per-user fee to Bynari or its partners,” explains Ammor. “With our SaaS-on-Premise program, companies with 100 users and up will benefit from the very low initial payment and aggressive subscription pricing starting at $.50 per user, per month including software upgrades, support, and a perpetual license to use BCS, while keeping complete control over their data.”
“Customers looking for an alternative to Exchange will find our SaaS-on-Premise program to be an attractive and practical option. Whether they need a solution for a single server or a large multi-tenant enterprise server cluster, BCS offers unparalleled scalability, interoperability, flexibility and significant savings,” says Ammor.
Trade-up-Server: For enterprise customers already using proprietary collaboration software, Bynari offers a new Trade-up-Server program. “Trade-up-Server is for any company with an existing email server like Zimbra, Scalix, Open-Xchange, IceWarp and other proprietary email servers. After customers have tested Bynari’s BCS and are satisfied that it’s the only collaboration suite that works as advertised, they can migrate away from their old servers and onto BCS without having to pay for the software. All they pay is Bynari’s annual software upgrade and support,” says Ammor.
Bynari offers a powerful migration tool that allows transparent migration of all user PST files from Microsoft Exchange and other proprietary email servers to BCS, completely eliminating downtime and training required for user data migration. Corporate Outlook users who want to keep their existing Outlook client can still use it without sacrificing any of its features, thanks to powerful Bynari connector technology that enables full groupware functionality between Outlook and BCS.
“BCS uses open standards and centralized architecture that are superior to other messaging servers. BCS provides fast and easy installation compared to other mail servers and scales easily from a simple server solution to the most complex server solutions,” says Ammor. “With our Trade-up-Server program, customers get a truly native Exchange alternative that will allow them to achieve higher reliability, availability, scalability, and reduce the total cost of ownership. And we will assist companies with every step of the migration process to make the switch as smooth as possible.”
