(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Open-Xchange and Resello are today jointly announcing the availability of Hosted OX App Suite™. German software vendor Open-Xchange developed OX App Suite which will be available in a hosted version through the Resello platform. The App Suite combines email, calendar, contacts, file management and social network integration in a single platform, helping users regain control over their digital interactions in both their work and personal lives. Resello is a global platform for resellers of hosted services with over 10 years’ experience in the domain name and hosting industry.
In the hosted software model, customers subscribe to applications instead of purchasing, typically on a monthly basis. With this pay-as-you-go approach, small and medium-size businesses have access to easy-to-use, low-cost services and business applications.
“Hosted OX App Suite is a perfect extension to our product portfolio. Our resellers are primarily serving small offices, home offices and SMEs, most of them without an in-house IT department. By providing their customers with a comprehensive communication and collaboration solution in a browser at a reasonable price, resellers deepen the relationship with their customers and grow their business at the same time,” says Valentijn Borstlap, CEO Resello.
Resello provides resellers with a wide range of hosted services from domain names to shared hosting, site builder tools, emails and SSL certificates. All services are delivered through a fully-brandable storefront that can be easily integrated into a reseller’s website. To streamline operations, Resello offers a control panel that automates order management, billing and invoicing. Plus, resellers get a brandable customer control panel that minimizes their support efforts.
“The cooperation with Resello enables us to target the large market of resellers serving millions of SMEs worldwide,” says Frank Hoberg, Executive Vice President Sales for Open-Xchange. “By providing them a hosted OX App Suite solution – in combination with all tools needed to automate and manage billing to service delivery and support – Resello makes it very attractive for resellers to profit from the increasing adoption of cloud services without requiring large upfront investment.”
Resello´s servers are located in the Netherlands in one of the most secure and advanced data centers. Resello offers their partners a Hosted OX App Suite that can be bundled with other applications and services before Resello’s partners target it to freelancers and SMEs. This combination of professional managed hosting by Resello, and consulting and user support by Resello resellers, ensures that SMEs have access to the latest web technologies. At the same time they benefit from the support and guidance of a local reseller they trust.
Hosted OX App Suite will be presented at WHD.global from April 1-3 in Rust, Germany, at
Resello booth #D05 and the OX Booth #C02
