Interact have announced they have entered into an agreement to join the Rackspace Partner Programme with Rackspace® Hosting, the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry.
This agreement will enable Interact to provide its customers with a fast and reliable secure intranet solution hosted by Rackspace The use of hosted software has become a sensible option for many businesses and offers a great alternative to a network based application. Hosting enables access to the intranet anywhere / anytime via a web browser which enhances collaboration opportunities for distributed or remote users. It also reduces pressure on limited in-house IT resources as there is no software to deploy or servers to maintain.
Interact Intranet is an easy to use, collaborative turnkey solution trusted by over 250,000 users. It is an intelligent intranet solution that learns as people use it, adapts and automatically connects relevant information to people. Powerful enterprise networking tools actively promote internal communication, collaboration, idea sharing and cross-organisation participation. It is modular in its architecture allowing organisations to add the components, resources, and services that are required as the business evolves and grows.
Scott Hitchins, Global Partner Manager at Interact, believes that hosted solutions are increasingly popular today for their ability to offer enterprise level system functionality with the advantages of zero maintenance overhead or initial capital outlay:
The financial investment and overhead of owning and maintaining servers and software applications in-house can be substantial. Rackspace hosting services will deliver a powerful and cost-effective intranet solution for our customers with rapid deployment and unparalleled scalability and flexibility in a secure environment.
Rackspace offer a 100% network and infrastructure uptime guarantee which will ensure that Interact Intranet is always accessible.”
Since 2001 Rackspace has been hosting and supporting mission critical websites, internet applications, email servers, security and storage services for 6,000 customers in the UK.
Andrew Bartlam, Head of Channel at Rackspace said:
We’re very pleased that Interact have joined our Partner Network and we look forward to working together in the future.”
