Panasonic Exchanges E-Mail

Massive Exchange shop Panasonic is giving the Microsoft e-mail platform the boot, not just switching vendors but fundamentally changing the way its e-mail is handled.

LotusLive offers a service-based approach to mail, Web conferencing, social networking and collaboration.

This deal ain't no small potatoes. Panasonic could have over 300,000 users on LotusLive in the coming years. Bet the Microsoft rep who handles Panasonic mail didn't have a very merry Christmas!

There'll probably be more Lotus news next week when the longstanding Lotusphere conference takes place.

Do you use a non-Microsoft e-mail system, and if so, why? Shoot your experiences to [email protected].
