Leading Texas Service Provider Selects the Zimbra Platform to Provide Next-Generation Messaging and Collaboration

Austin, TX, December, 2010 – DoubleHorn announced today the availability of Hosted Enterprise Email, a collaborative email, calendar, document management and mobile synchronization service that not only mitigates the cost of installing and maintaining complex software, but creates a reliable and secure channel for business communication.

Email systems today have evolved into sophisticated tools that go beyond just facilitating the creation and delivery of email, said Ken Ryon, DoubleHorn VP of Engineering. They also provide for calendaring, shared address books, task management, encryption, and support for mobile messaging.

Small and medium-size businesses may only be using a fraction of the capabilities that are supported by their email clients. We are going to change that with our new converged communications service based on the Zimbra Platform.

In listening to our customers, we learned that many of them were getting bogged down in administering the email function, said Ryon. Not only was the cost impacting their profitability, but they were diverting personnel away from tasks that might have generated additional revenues for the company.

In fact, Ryon believes startups could benefit the most from Hosted Enterprise Email.

Small businesses that are poised for growth may be contemplating the purchase of Microsoft Exchange Server, this at a time when their capital may be better spent on efforts to generate revenue, said Ryon. By offering a hosted, and scalable, solution, DoubleHorn can provide them with the flexibility to preserve their capital, or redirect it in a fashion that will enhance the business’ chance of success.
