MC2 Increases Productivity, Lowers IT Maintenance Costs

Uses Apptix’s Hosted Services

Updated: January 06, 2011

Herndon, VA (PRWEB) December 22, 2009 -- Apptix (OSE: APP), the leading provider of hosted Microsoft Exchange email, Microsoft SharePoint, and business VoIP services for organizations worldwide, today announced that MC2, Incorporated, a Wisconsin-based wireless voice and data business solution reseller, has experienced increased productivity, and reduced IT infrastructure and maintenance costs since switching to Apptix hosted solutions in early 2009. Apptix provides MC2 with hosted Exchange email, mobile email for multiple devices, and Web site hosting.

MC2 was experiencing significant downtime and malicious activity towards its Web site and business communications infrastructure prior to its move to Apptix. The company was spending thousands of dollars on IT consultants and patches with little to no effect on downtime or their communications problems. Tired of spending more time and money on IT instead of building the business, MC2 conducted an extensive review of its communications options and identified Apptix as the hosted services provider with the best suite of products to address their immediate and future needs.

“Before Apptix, we were spending too much time focusing on our Web site and email servers instead of focusing on building our business,” said Jason Kayzar, MC2 founder and CEO. “Apptix easily migrated us over a weekend onto their hosted services platform. Since the switch to Apptix, we have not had to think about IT. Instead, we are working on projects to grow the business. That means Apptix was the right decision for our business.”

“Small-businesses like MC2 have countless daily challenges, but managing their IT system doesn’t has to be one of them,” said Chris Damvakaris, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Apptix. “MC2‘s use of Apptix hosted services to increase employee productivity and cost savings is providing them a significant competitive advantage in today’s economy.”

About MC2:

Since 2000, MC2, Incorporated (MC2) has consistently focused on one principle: helping our clients. While that may seem like an oversimplified statement, we operate on principles rather than policies. Wireless carriers often lack the flexibility to follow through on their own promises. We help to form and then cement the bond between the carrier and the end users. Whether it's billing issues, network performance or new technology rollouts, we partner with our clients to give the ongoing support they need to maximize the use of their wireless tools.
