Outsourcery, a world-leading Cloud Service Provider, has announced its new UC2013 solution for partners, aimed specifically at their SMB customer base. As one of the first companies to go to market with Microsoft Lync 2013 earlier this year, Outsourcery is focussed on continually developing its offering to ensure its partners are able to deliver the best solutions to their customers.

The company is introducing its latest, cost effective cloud platform to offer highly secure Unified Lync and Cloud Mail, Outsourcery’s email solution, based on Microsoft Exchange, which will provide partners with the latest unified communications solution at a low cost, ideal for their SMB customers.

Offering UC2013 via a quick-to-deploy cloud platform is the logical next step to helping partners cater specifically to SMB customers, which have a need for secure cloud-based solutions, but which often don’t have a large budget for IT. A recent white paper from the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) found that 71 per cent of UK businesses with 20-200 employees use at least one cloud service and 79 per cent include consideration for cloud services within their wider IT strategy.

For this reason Outsourcery’s new affordable offering is a great opportunity for partners to create solutions and messages that appeal specifically to small and medium-sized businesses and develop propositions that are fit for purpose.

“As a leading cloud service provider, it is important to us to make sure that our offerings are accessible and affordable to smaller and medium-sized businesses, as well as large enterprises," Piers Linney, Co-CEO of Outsourcery, said.

"With the cloud, this flexibility is entirely possible and we have tapped into this to create a solution that is reachable for the smallest of businesses. With an increasing number of SMBs adopting cloud services for this increased flexibility and reliability, we want to be sure that our partners are adequately prepared for the demand so they can benefit from this opportunity, and UC2013 marks an important step for us and them in this journey."
