Hostway Upgrades Webmail and Collaboration Options For SMB Customers with New Open-Xchange Packages

Powered by the Popular OX App Suite, OX Mail and OX Collaborate Are Designed for a Mobile-First World

CHICAGO, Oct. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Cloud hosting provider Hostway Services, Inc. today announced the launch of new webmail and collaboration options: OX Mail and OX Collaborate. Powered by the popular OX App Suite software stack from Open-Xchange, OX Mail is a business-class email solution, and OX Collaborate is a fully functional collaboration solution. Hostway’s addition of the new Open-Xchange packages represents a significant upgrade that improves the infrastructure and hosting options available to Hostway’s small and mid-sized business customers as well as channel partners and resellers.

OX Mail, which integrates with popular services like Gmail and Hotmail, is now included with all Hostway web hosting packages for new customers. Hostway’s current webmail customers have been migrated to the upgraded package so they can take advantage of OX Mail’s superior email, contact and appointment management functions. For customers with more robust needs, OX Collaborate is available to expand the capabilities of OX Mail. OX Collaborate enables teams to operate seamlessly with shared contacts, calendars and files. It also empowers users with the ability to store, view and stream media in the cloud.

Using HTML5 and advanced JavaScript integration, OX Mail and OX Collaborate deliver a consistent user and data experience across all platforms, including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. This enables Hostway’s business customers to function efficiently in an increasingly mobile-first environment. Hostway customers can also purchase OX Mail and OX Collaborate on a stand-alone basis without choosing a web hosting package.

“We designed the OX App Suite as an open platform solution set to give users the tools they need to operate in the cloud from virtually any device,” said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “With this launch, Hostway is providing its customers with a better way to manage core business communication and collaboration functions. These new tools will strengthen Hostway’s relationship with its growing customer base and give the company a competitive edge in the web hosting and enterprise email space.”

“Hostway is committed to continuously improving the solutions we offer to direct customers as well as our channel partners and resellers,” said John Enright, GM of Web & Applications for Hostway. “The rollout of OX Mail and OX Collaborate is a major upgrade that will enable users to more effectively manage email and collaboration. Open-Xchange offers a robust feature set as well as an exceptional customer experience, so we’re excited to work with them to improve our solution portfolio.”
