Services available to NAR members at a 10% discount and standard 14-day free trial:
Microsoft Exchange – Hosted Exchange provides customers with all of the power of Exchange without the cost and expertise of hosting a server in-house. Hosted Exchange unlocks all of the features and functionality of Outlook and allows easy access to email, contacts and calendar with real-time push capability. Exchange is accessible via Outlook, Outlook Web Access (OWA), or a mobile device such as iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Rackspace Email – Rackspace Email is a less costly alternative to the Hosted Exchange product. Rackspace Email allows access to email via the web, mobile device or a mail client such as Outlook. It has mobile syncing capabilities to sync between webmail and a mobile device such as iPhone, iPad, and Android. Rackspace Email allows you to view and share contacts and calendars via webmail. Rackspace Email also works with desktop software such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Entourage or any POP/IMAP client. The main difference between Exchange and Rackspace Email is that Rackspace Email does not automatically sync with Outlook. Users can upgrade to Hosted Exchange for a seamless integration between their desktop, webmail and mobile device for mail, calendars, contacts, and more.
Rackspace Archiving – Archiving backs up the Rackspace hosted email products and includes unlimited mailbox storage on Rackspace hosted servers. Rackspace Archiving allows users to save a copy of every single email ever sent and received on their domain for an unlimited amount of time.
SharePoint – Hosted SharePoint is a collaboration tool. It allows file sharing with version tracking. There is no software to download or licenses to manage. NAR members who purchase SharePoint separately receive a 1GB SharePoint site. Microsoft Exchange and Rackspace Email customers receive a free 250 MB SharePoint site.
Rackspace products are available for individual agents to purchase or for brokers to purchase for their entire office. Be sure to inquire about additional discounts for bulk pricing.
