Intermedia Shares Exchange Migration Tool with Partners

Hosted Exchange giant Intermedia is releasing a proprietary mailbox migration tool for its partners.

Intermedia calls the tool the Cloud Concierge Onboarding Tool. The company says it has been using the tool internally since 2010 to migrate more than 300,000 users onto its Hosted Exchange platform. (In all, Intermedia currently claims about 550,000 premium Hosted Exchange mailboxes.)

The tool is designed for Hosted Exchange setup and migration from in-house systems, third-party systems and IMAP. According to Intermedia's description, the onboarding tool can export Exchange Global Address Lists or Active Directory objects, fix e-mail addresses, migrate data and execute the cutover to Hosted Exchange, among other functions. Partners who use the tool will also be able to tap Intermedia for free, round-the-clock support.

Along with Hosted Exchange, Intermedia offers Hosted PBX and Cloud Server, a hosted application infrastructure packaged for small businesses. For now, the tool only works for Hosted Exchange.

The company has several thousand reseller partners, who can white-label Intermedia's offering and build in their own margin when they bill the customer, resell the products and receive an advisor fee from Intermedia or switch between the two models on a customer-by-customer basis.
