With Skype for Business, powered by Intermedia, employees can share information with group chat and desktop sharing as well as adding video, voice, and screen sharing capabilities to increase productivity at work. For companies in highly regulated and litigious industries, being able to integrate IM tools with a compliant archive is vital. Skype for Business integrates seamlessly with the Connected Archive from Smarsh.

99.999% financially backed SLA

Intermedia believes in giving customers the best service possible. A 99.999% uptime SLA means that you should expect less than six minutes of downtime over the course of a year. Our competitors—including Office 365—only offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee- just three nines. While that difference may not seem significant, the difference actually amounts to downtime each year of over 8 hours.
