Freecom's remote control

Antony Savaas

ISP Freecom.net has signed a deal with BT to enable it to offer remote office working facilities to its 7,000 SME customers.

The internet-based OfficeAnywhere managed service from BT will be re-sold by Freecom.net to its customers who want remote access to shared e-mail and applications via broadband lines, and remote connectivity over mobile devices such as personal digital assistants. 

The Midlands-based ISP selected the OfficeAnywhere product because the service provides a secure and scalable Microsoft Exchange 2003 e-mail service for customers, either as a stand-alone product or as a value-add to an existing package.

In addition, the OfficeAnywhere service includes the mobile e-mail product Microsoft Mobile Information Server. OfficeAnywhere is designed to remove the user’s burden of managing e-mail and provides customers with a way of predicting billing costs per user.

Trevor Price, Freecom.net managing director, said, “We’ve been looking for ways to meet the changing needs of our customers - we now have an innovative communications product to offer them, which, being fully managed by BT, means we can focus on customer service.”
