NEWTOWN, Pa., May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 4ward SRL, an industry-leading Microsoft Office 365 IT services company based in Milan, Italy, announces its first North American office servicing local enterprises that want to capitalize on their Office 365 investment. The new entity, 4ward USA, will be led by Carl Baumann, a 19-year IT software leader with deep industry knowledge, close relationships within Microsoft, and a strong track record of revenue growth. Mr. Baumann has been named Chief Executive Officer.
Microsoft Office 365 has quickly become the standard for enterprises, based on its comprehensive functionality, ease of use and features that promote enterprise collaboration and communication. However, many companies lack sufficient adoption and consumption of the platform's features. 4ward's flagship product, 4ward365, provides enterprises with reporting, metrics, user alerts, role-based access control, license management, auditing, and other services.
Mr. Baumann states, "4ward has continuously proven its value to enterprises throughout Europe that run Office 365 to collaborate, communicate and manage their business. As someone who has led global IT sales and marketing organizations for almost two decades, I'm extremely excited to introduce 4ward USA to North America and exponentially grow the business here."
David Mascarella, President, 4ward, states, "Carl has been a trusted advisor, working closely with our European team on Office 365 business opportunities for years. We look forward to this market opportunity with Carl as the CEO of 4ward USA."
Prior to 4ward USA, Baumann served as VP of Sales and Marketing for Binary Tree, Inc. for seven years where he executed the global sales and marketing strategy. This effort resulted in the transition of over 5 million legacy mailboxes to Office 365. Mr. Baumann's charter at 4ward USA includes full oversight of the company's strategy in North America, business development, as well as developing additional partnerships to encourage Office 365 consumption and adoption.
4ward is the global leader in Office 365 management and reporting. 4ward's flagship product, 4ward365, provides enterprises and Microsoft partners the ability to manage, control and obtain valuable information on all aspects of their Microsoft Office 365 investment. This comprehensive data set allows organizations to improve security, achieve compliance, optimize licensing, and deliver operational improvements. 4ward's commitment to innovation is demonstrated by its close alliance with Microsoft as a Gold Certified Partner. Founded in 2002, 4ward has corporate headquarters in Milan, Italy and a North American presence outside Philadelphia, PA. For more information, please visit www.4ward365.com.
