Kopano - Yet another email and collaboration solution?
Many wonder why they should choose Kopano instead using the usual brands. Here we try to answer some of the questions. Do you want to ask some more? Then don't hesitate to contact us.
Isn't Microsoft Exchange good enough?
While Microsoft Exchange provides the features required by most businesses it is also quite expensive to purchase, it requires powerful servers and it doesn't allow very easily to integrate with other applications not produced by Microsoft. With the latest releases it is not even possible any more share public folders and calendars without purchasing SharePoint adding more complexity and costs.
Google Apps or Office365?
Cloud based collaboration offering may seem very interesting as you don't have to pay upfront for software and servers but comparing the costs over 2/3 years Kopano will cost you about 50/70% less (including the infrastructure and support costs), it will allow you to keep control of your data and to integrate it with your applications.
Kopano already includes video conference, instant messaging, secure file sharing, email encryption and many more features. It's faster, it requires little maintenance and HW resources, it requires lower investments than Cloud based products so why choosing something else?
Then, with the recent and ongoing PRISM/NSA scandal and Cloud services downtime (wasn't the Cloud supposed to provide 100% uptime?), do you really want to give away your valuable data and pay for it?
