We should host your email

We are like a broken record on how great our Hosted Email service is, so we asked one of the latest adopters to jot down a few words. We rolled out a Hosted Exchange environment for our Clients as an additional service, so read on; Jerrod is going to share some of his words of wisdom.

Jerrod Wilson, Information Security Officer at Meadville Area FCU (Meadville, PA)

We chose to make the conversion to hosted Exchange with ESP last year.  Since we have made the switch we have had nothing but an excellent experience with the product.

At the time, I was pricing out how much an in-house Exchange environment would cost the Meadville Area Federal Credit Union to deploy.  After final review of everything that was necessary, the Exchange Server, licenses, man hours, deployment and so forth, going with ESP’s hosted environment was a no brainer.  The extremely low cost that ESP offers for the service and the reliability is unbelievable.

The deployment of the product was very simple and took very little time and effort.  Working with the experienced team at ESP we converted all email addresses, including our mobile devices, over to the hosted environment within a week with no problems.

Having the hosted Exchange gives our team the ability to be more mobile and accessible to all members of our staff.  One part of the product that has become an integral part of business is the calendar sharing feature.  Now all members of the staff can view and schedule appointments for our loan officers or other members of the staff.  They can then set up an alert to contact the staff member, via computer and mobile device, notifying them of all the details of their upcoming appointment.

Switching to the hosted Exchange product from ESP has saved us time and money while also giving us added features that have become essential to us doing business.  I would highly recommend this service to all current clients of ESP.

Give us a shout at and we can provide you with a fancy sheet that will outline everything you need to know!
