RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (Jan. 4, 2012) – NeoNova Network Services, an industry leader in cloud-based broadband services for regional telcos, announced they are making Google Apps for Business™ available for ISPs to sell to local businesses. Through NeoNova, these ISPs now can offer a differentiated business messaging and collaboration platform that allows small-to-medium businesses (SMB) to cost-effectively communicate, collaborate, and compete on the same scale as larger enterprises.
“Google Apps for Business is heavily penetrated with early adopters and technology companies,” said NeoNova CEO Ray Carey. “What’s been lacking are the additional services such as applications, implementation, support, and training so that regional ISPs can quickly adopt to dramatically grow their SMB revenue stream.”
Regional ISPs provide broadband to many of the 6.8 million SMBs that drive the success of the American economy. Providers can use Google as a way to offer enhanced communication services bundled with their broadband offerings. SMBs receive a cost-effective solution that quickly adapts to their high growth needs.
NeoNova enables ISPs to offer a turnkey service to businesses that delivers benefits over traditional in-house solutions. Included in the offering is a business domain (firstname.lastname@example.org), administrative interface and conversion for all end-users, administrative and end-user training, integrated online training courses, a complete backup solution for all Google Apps data, and 24×7 support and training by phone, email, and chat for everyone in the enterprise. NeoNova also integrated Google Apps into its NovaSubscriber provisioning platform to enable billing support for the ISP.
“Google Apps for business offers a powerful tool to free us from the administrative hassle of in-house, server-based e-mail,” said Stephanie Garofano, Clarity Communications President. “NeoNova got us up and running in our own business in less than 24 hours, and we now have a comprehensive solution that meets our business needs and will help us differentiate our offering to our SMB customers.”
“SMBs shouldn’t have to compromise on the quality of tools they use,” added Carey. “Google Apps lets a business stay focused on its core business and not waste time maintaining servers, upgrading software, and supporting employees on technical support. NeoNova provides ISPs with all the tools necessary for their business customers run a business effectively and efficiently, anytime and anywhere.”
