MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Intermedia, a leading cloud business applications provider, announces several new Microsoft® Office 365® solution offerings. Designed to take the end-user experience to the next level, Intermedia enhances Office 365 with integrated backup, continuity, cloud voice, compliance and security services.
Intermedia brings additional value to Office 365
"Our users are top of mind as we launch Office 365 from Intermedia," said Michael Gold, CEO of Intermedia. "Intermedia's integrated offerings complement Office 365 with next-level backup, continuity, communications, compliance and security. Further, these solutions include our J.D. Power certified support1 and Worry-Free migration, as additional value-adds."
Available integrated services include SecuriSync® file backup and sharing, Email Continuity, Cloud Voice, Email Archiving, Encrypted Email and Outlook® Backup. The value-adds of each complementary integration relative to the Office 365 user experience include:
- SecuriSync backup – Secure Office 365 file sharing, backup and restoration, with full administrative control
- Email Continuity – Access Office 365 email even during outages
- Cloud Voice – Enhance Office 365 with a feature-rich enterprise-grade phone system that includes 24/7 support and a 99.999 percent service level agreement

Helping solution providers, MSPs and VARs make money with Office 365
According to MSP Mentor's 501 Global Edition Study, 70 percent of Office 365 resellers expressed feeling margin pressure. Eric Martorano, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Intermedia expands on why: "Partner profitability opportunities are limited by purely selling Office 365 without additional value-added services. By incorporating Intermedia services such as cloud voice, backup and continuity, as well as migration and technical support with Office 365, partners build a foundation that enables them to bring exceptional value to their customers and profitability to their business."
In addition to helping the channel differentiate from other vendors, selling complementary products alongside Office 365 increases profitability, as indicated by 73 percent of the channel, according to The Buyer Persona Institute.
Intermedia gives partners the marketing resources, support, and additional white-labeled products to help them add value to Office 365 and increase margins, while still owning the customer relationship. Learn more about Intermedia's Private Label model.
Martorano continued, "Intermedia provides the channel community with a significant advantage when selling Office 365 – the ability to put add-on solutions in their own name. It doesn't get much better for partners than the ability to deliver Intermedia's solutions and award-winning support, with their own brand at the center of it all."
