April 5, 2010, Toronto, Canada – Messageware (http://messagewareinc.wpengine.com), the world's leading provider of enterprise productivity, security and customization solutions for Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access and Outlook Web App (OWA), today announced their solutions are now being used by over five million users worldwide.
In 2009, the company won major accounts including one of the top-five global financial services firms and a top-ten UK university, who chose Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 enhanced with Messageware security and productivity software. Both organizations turned to Messageware to bridge the gap between the features and benefits in their legacy solutions and those in native OWA. These deployments and others brought hundreds of thousands of users to Messageware, contributing to a dramatic increase in business in 2009 despite the difficult economy.
Extra Space Storage, the second largest self-storage provider in the U.S., selected Messageware for their facility managers and employees who need to send and receive email, maintain calendars and contact lists, and manage tasks via Windows Internet Explorer. Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, a leading U.S. medical and acute care center, chose Messageware to solve the need for secure access to their email on the hospital’s shared computers and while working remotely. At Kingston University London, a prominent U.K. academic institution, students rely solely on OWA for email access. The University turned to Messageware to bridge the gap between the features provided in native OWA and what was required for their students to use email more effectively.
In addition to these new customer wins, in 2009, Messageware expanded their market share with hosted Exchange providers who are growing in response to increased demand for cloud-based email services. By partnering with Messageware, these organizations have been able to differentiate their product offering. Global Micro, a South African service provider, partnered with Messageware to provide their IT service customers who use OWA with an enhanced security solution. Adding Messageware products was a win-win for both Global Micro and their clients. Clients now receive the benefits of award-winning security and productivity improvements and Global Micro has a demonstrable competitive advantage over their competition.
“Regardless of their size, companies now, more than ever, need to collaborate quickly, cost-effectively and securely with colleagues, partners and customers from the office or on the road,” said Mark Rotman, President & CEO of Messageware. “Not only does our growth validate the fact that we are the number one choice for OWA enhancements, but it also reinforces our belief that OWA adoption and usage continues to expand.”
Since 1993, Messageware has remained true to their mission of enhancing OWA and it is this laser-like focus that has earned them the confidence of companies in every industry, including Fortune 500 companies and G20 governments. With each new version of Exchange, the company has continually evolved to meet the changing needs of mobile users and security conscious companies. In the process, they have earned numerous distinctions, including membership in the elite Microsoft Gold Partner Excellence Program and dozens of awards.
