Dotster, a provider of Internet business services, has released new Open-Xchange Webmail, Business Email, and Personal Mobility offerings. Open-Xchange includes a fully-integrated email service, calendar, contact list, and task list, allowing customers to manage their day-to-day activities from one central location.
With Business Email, employees can share calendars, address books, task lists and files, resulting in increased productivity, and improved communication, teamwork and efficiency, the company claims.
According to Dotster, the features of the new Business Email include, team calendaring with shared calendars, shared contacts, shared task lists, centralised document storage with version control, mobile device compatibility with Personal Mobility and full integration with desktop programs including Microsoft Outlook’s email, contacts, calendar, and tasks; Apple’s Mail, iCal, and Address Book.
The company said the Personal Mobility offers real-time synchronisation of email, contacts, calendar and tasks and supports mobile devices including the Apple iPhone, Motorola Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile smartphones.
With Open-Xchange ‘Social OX’ features, users can also consolidate any kind of existing webmail accounts into a folder in Open-Xchange so they can be managed more easily, the company said.
Clint Page, CEO of Dotster, said: “Many of our customers, especially those who own small businesses, want to improve their day-to-day workflow and office collaboration with a tool like Microsoft Exchange but they simply don’t have the budget to support it.
“It’s our mission to provide these customers with a cost-effective alternative that performs the same functions, and also offers a variety of improvements upon the original product.”
