The Endurance International Group replaces webmail and offers cloud collaboration to users

Open-Xchange, a supplier of business-class email and collaboration software, announced its partnership with The Endurance International Group, a leading provider of domains, hosting and online services. The agreement will bring cloud-based communications and collaboration to more than 2 million Endurance customers.

"We are ardent advocates of open platforms, and were very particular when selecting a new email platform for our clients," said Hari Ravichandran, founder and CEO of The Endurance International Group. "With the switch to Open-Xchange, we're giving our users outstanding email service, as well as options for collaboration that are on par with those of large enterprises.

"Endurance has one of the largest bases of online small-business customers in the world. This is a very significant strategic win for Open-Xchange," said Philbert Shih, managing director and founder, Structure Research. "Endurance will greatly benefit from being able to offer its customers the next generation of Open-Xchange, which will include significant new changes to the user experience when introduced later this year. We continue to see email and collaboration as growth centers in the cloud services world and believe hosters have a unique opportunity to raise ARPU (average revenue per user) and enhance customer retention."
