“Research has shown us that many SMEs still use on-premise solutions that are costly and at risk to data loss. While most companies, and specifically business owners and managers, today realise the value of hosted business email, Fasthosts advises all types of business to examine how their daily use of email is developing in relation to their business needs,” said Claire Lewis, Marketing Director, Fasthosts Internet.
“With hosted email, many UK firms could benefit from greater efficiency, enhanced email accessibility and handling, increased levels of security as well as cost savings,” she added.
