No Capital Expenditure and Predictable monthly
Choosing to move to an outsourced email solution gives you the
flexibility to manage your costs without having the initial upfront
investment required from an in-house solution. You only pay for the
resources you use; giving monthly predictable costs, from as little
as £3.29 per user, per month.
Research shows* that the average spend per user on a in-house
managed solution is estimated to be £1000 per user, per annum. With
a hosted email
solution you would pay £40 per user, per annum.
