Cloud hosting provider Hostway Services Inc. has launched new email and collaboration options for SMB customers: OX Mail and OX Collaborate, powered by the OX App Suite software stack from Open-Xchange.

OX Mail, a business-class email solution that integrates with services like Gmail and Hotmail, is now included with all Hostway web hosting packages for new customers. Hostway’s current webmail customers have been migrated to the upgraded package so they can utilize OX Mail’s email, contact, and appointment management functions. OX Collaborate expands the capabilities of OX Mail and enables teams to share contacts, calendars, and files. It also allows users to store, view, and stream media in the cloud.  

Using HTML5 and advanced JavaScript integration, OX Mail and OX Collaborate are designed to deliver a consistent user and data experience across all platforms, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

“We designed the OX App Suite as an open platform solution set to give users the tools they need to operate in the cloud from virtually any device,” says Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “With this launch, Hostway is providing its customers with a better way to manage core business communication and collaboration functions.” 

“The rollout of OX Mail and OX Collaborate is a major upgrade that will enable users to more effectively manage email and collaboration. Open-Xchange offers a robust feature set as well as an exceptional customer experience, so we’re excited to work with them to improve our solution portfolio,” says John Enright, GM of web and applications for Hostway.
