MC2 Boosts Productivity, Lowers IT Costs with Apptix Hosted Communication Services

By Amy Tierney, TMCnet Web Editor

Apptix (News - Alert), a provider of hosted Microsoft Exchange e-mail, Microsoft SharePoint, and business VoIP services, recently announced that MC2 Incorporated, a Wisconsin-based wireless voice and data business solution reseller, realized increased productivity and lowered its IT infrastructure and maintenance costs since it switched to Apptix hosted solutions in 2009.

According to the company, MC2 experienced significant downtime and malicious activity on its Web site and business communications infrastructure. The firm spent thousands of dollars on IT consultants and patches, which had little to no effect on downtime. So, it reviewed its communications options and identified sought help from Apptix as its hosted services provider to address its needs.
Apptix, a Unified Communications provider, offers MC2 hosted Exchange e-mail, mobile e-mail for multiple devices and Web site hosting services.
“Before Apptix, we were spending too much time focusing on our Web site and e-mail servers instead of focusing on building our business,” Jason Kayzar, MC2 founder and CEO, said. “Apptix easily migrated us over a weekend onto their hosted services platform. Since the switch to Apptix, we have not had to think about IT. Instead, we are working on projects to grow the business. That means Apptix was the right decision for our business.”
“Small-businesses like MC2 have countless daily challenges, but managing their IT system doesn’t has to be one of them,” Chris Damvakaris (News - Alert), vice president of sales and marketing for Apptix, said. “MC2's use of Apptix hosted services to increase employee productivity and cost savings is providing them a significant competitive advantage in today’s economy.”
