Migrating from email hosting solution Microsoft Exchange to Google (News - Alert) Apps is now an easy task to accomplish, thanks to GrexIt Inc. This is due to the fact that the essential tool provides businesses with the ability to continue email collaboration while going through the transition with virtually no downtime.
"GrexIt enables companies to better manage important processes such as project management, customer support, sales and hiring via their email inboxes -- the tool employees are already most comfortable using," said Niraj Ranjan Rout, founder, GrexIt, in a statement. "It is the simplest solution for tagging, sharing and tracking important email conversations via Gmail and an integral tool for any company moving from Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange to Google Apps."
According to Google, organizations using Google Apps include 66 of the top 100 universities in the U.S., government institutions in 45 of the 50 U.S. states, and a total of five million businesses.
"For the last six months we have been prevented from transferring our Exchange system to Gmail for all users simply because there were no public folders," added Neil Hack, Ronin Corporation, a global market research firm. "Without them we have no real effective shared email resource. GrexIt solves this for us in a very elegant implementation and paves the way for us to fully migrate away from in-house Exchange to full blown Google Apps email for all. It's a fantastic App and very close to being absolutely essential."
Founded in 2011, GrexIt adds shared labels and folders to Google Apps to turn your e-mail into a simple, powerful collaboration tool. It is considered perfect for managing any team and project, from support and sales to recruiting and development.
In related email hosting news, recently SherWeb, an email hosting provider, revealed that its Hosted Exchange 2010 environment will fully support the mail function on Apple’s (News - Alert) brand new iPad, the iPad 3.
