IMF Tune - Bringing Back the Exchange Connection Filter
Get More Out of Your Budget with IMF Tune
In a time when everyone wants to do more with less, WinDeveloper is seeing a significant rise in demand for its anti-spam solution.
Organizations are more than ever questioning the return on investment they get from their IT budget. Presented with significant savings opportunity, coupled with today's economic climate, many are ready to explore alternative solutions that do not compromise with quality.
As Stephanie Farrugia, Sales Manager at WinDeveloper Software explains "today we are being approached by an increasing number of channel partners that are looking for more competitive offerings". Quite clearly clients are not willing to stick to vendors that are not responsive to today's realities.
Some resellers are broadening their product offering with solutions from different vendors. In this manner they target clients with different budget requirements. Other resellers are more aggressive and actively encourage their clients to move to the solutions with the best ROI.
As Stephanie points out, "Changing market conditions present a great opportunity for those who get the timing right. Providing clients with a significant cost cutting opportunity, our partners reinforce customer loyalty and are well positioned to extend their client base."
To understand what this is all about, we get down to the numbers. Comparing IMF Tune pricing to offers from established vendors, IMF Tune provides an MS Exchange server-side anti-spam solution with savings ranging from 50% to over 500%. To confirm this we just need to look at the IMF Tune price list. A 15 mailbox license is priced at USD 170/EUR 110 whereas an Unlimited Users license is priced USD 1860/EUR 1200.
What about quality? Alexander Zammit, WinDeveloper Technical Director, identifies key technical differences that allowed them to put together such a competitive solution without losing on quality. "We chose to reuse the anti-spam functionality built into Exchange 2003 and 2007. Microsoft already includes filtering intelligence based on their patented SmartScreen technology. We built on top of this, focusing on adding the functionality required by an Enterprise grade solution".
This approach allowed WinDeveloper to provide a solution whose core is implemented by the most trusted software developer on the Windows platform, Microsoft. Many anti-spam vendors claim to provide native Exchange integration. However Alexander says that "very few vendors get close to our level of integration".
