LAN Systems Offers Next Generation in Cloud Computing

Norcross, Georgia – January 21, 2011 – LAN Systems, a leading Atlanta Computer Support company, announced that it will offer the next generation in cloud productivity with Microsoft Office 365.

Combining Microsoft Office, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Lync Online in an always-up-to-date cloud service makes it easier for millions more organizations to get and use Microsoft’s award-winning business productivity solutions via the cloud. With Office 365, people can work together more easily from anywhere on virtually any device, while collaborating with others inside and outside their organization in a simple and highly secure way.

Office 365 is built on years of experience delivering industry-leading business cloud services ranging from the first browser-based e-mail to today’s Business Productivity Online Suite, Microsoft Office Live Small Business and Live@edu. Moving to the cloud with Office 365 means people don’t have to change the way they work, because Office 365 works with the most popular browsers, smartphones and desktop applications people use today.

“We have been anxiously waiting to offer Office 365,” said Mary Hester, LAN Systems CEO. “The product combines the ease, economy and power of cloud computing with Microsoft productivity tools. It will make the cloud a real choice for small businesses.”

With Office 365 for small businesses, professionals and small companies with fewer than 25 employees can be up and running with Office Web Apps, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online and an external website in just 15 minutes. The Enterprise edition introduces an array of choices for midsize and large businesses as well as government organizations. Organizations can get Office Professional Plus along with e-mail, voicemail, enterprise social networking, instant messaging, Web portals, extranets, voiceconferencing and videoconferencing, webconferencing, 24×7 phone support, on-premises licenses, and more.

Office 365 creates new growth opportunities for Microsoft and its partners by reaching more customers and types of workers and meeting more business IT needs — all while cutting costs for customers. The product is available as beta and soon to be in full release. Later this year, Office 365 will expand to include Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online to provide Microsoft’s complete business productivity experience to organizations of all types and sizes. In addition, Office 365 for education will debut later next year, giving students, faculty and school employees powerful technology tailored specifically to their needs.
