Cloud Service Providers must find new ways to help SMEs to do business using the cloud, not just cheaper ways. Trust is a differentiator.
Within only six months of implementing our hosted Microsoft Outlook with Unified Communication Services solution, we managed to integrate our staff communications, save tens of thousands of euros in travel costs, and free up over 1,500 man-days in staff resources to do what we do best – saving lives on our country’s lakes and rivers.
Neostratus is an expert in unified communications and collaboration, ranked as the number one cloud focus area for telecom operators accross the world, according to Informa service benchmarking.
Communication service providers should remember that cloud computing can – and must – defend the core: broadband.
As an investment fund, DBH searches for, analyzes and invests into future top-performers in the market who have the potential to become global players in their industries. Neostratus is a company that is on track to be considered a role model in this respect. We expect much from them and so far they have delivered.
[Communication Service Providers] should look to take advantage of vendors’ expertise by utilizing their cloud enablement services or establishing go-to-market partnerships in order to quickly establish themselves in the market.
Telcos have an opportunity to grow into the role of cloud ecosystem manager, leveraging their network and financial assets.
The services provided by Neostratus as a hosting partner are first class. All costs are in the monthly fee with no hidden extras or surprises. Currently, we’re considering extending our arrangements to include hosted Windows SharePoint Services.
We’ve calculated a 60 percent direct saving with the hosted Exchange messaging service, plus a bonus from the redeployment of two full-time IT staff to higher value work.
We had no integrated solution to manage our staff database, no shared calendar to schedule lifeguard shifts or training, no unified communications scheme. Everything was done manually across different platforms. It wasn’t very efficient.
