Oslo, Norway/San Francisco, CA – 19 October 2010 -/Reuters/- Mamut today announced that it will include Microsoft Office 365 as part of the company’s business solution and hosting offerings to its more than 400,000 customers across Europe. Microsoft Office 365 is a significant element in further embedding the next wave of cloud based services in the Mamut One business solution.

Including Microsoft Office 365 in all offerings underlines Mamut’s continued dedication to deliver added customer value while further reducing operational complexity and infrastructure investment needs.

Microsoft Office 365 was announced as Microsoft’s next generation cloud productivity service in San Francisco on October the 19th with Mamut as one of the six global launch partners. Microsoft Office 365 brings together SharePoint, Exchange, Lync, and Office WebApps in an always-up-to-date cloud service, a productivity backbone for modern businesses, and offers true enterprise level features and reliability to small businesses. Microsoft Office 365 also provides a new way to get Microsoft Office 2010 desktop software; on a pay-as-you-go basis.

“Today’s announcement of Microsoft Office 365 will change the hosting and software industry as customers will be offered richer solutions at a better price point and will provide small businesses access to premium services. Mamut has been working closely with Microsoft over the past year to integrate with Microsoft Office 365 in order to increase customer value and reduce operational cost and infrastructure investment needs. We look forward to including Microsoft Office 365 in the upcoming version of Mamut One and our hosting solutions,” says Eilert Hanoa, CEO of Mamut.

By including Microsoft Office 365 as part of the company’s Software + Services offering, Mamut will further reduce investments, capital expenditure and operational costs in combination with improving the scope and quality of its total offering. In total, this provides Mamut with new opportunities in the SME segment, and these services will give Mamut’s solutions richer functionality, and increasing customer value.

“Microsoft values its relationship with Mamut, and its continued dedication to deliver added value by including the newest technology from Microsoft in their offerings, helping customers save time and improving efficiency at predictable costs. Mamut merges technical know-how and extensive customer experience to deliver enterprise class business productivity applications to small businesses in Europe,” says Knut Aasrud, General Manager, Communications Sector, Microsoft EMEA

Microsoft Office 365 combined with the Microsoft Office 2010 suite will further enable Mamut to offer the most complete and integrated solutions providing enterprise class functionality for the small business segment in Europe. Microsoft Office 365 will gradually be offered to all Mamut’s customers across Europe and will positively affect all Mamut’s subsidiaries, including Active 24, Loopia and Mamut Lexware.

The next release of Mamut One includes new cloud based services built on Windows Azure in addition to including Microsoft Office 365. Mamut was one of the first companies to launch Software + Services solutions embedding Microsoft’s cloud platform to ensure rapid deployment, greater flexibility, and reduced operational costs. Mamut already delivers comprehensive online solutions for SMEs with Mamut Online Backup for Azure as the first solution to be launched on Microsoft’s cloud platform.

Mamut will present a broader update regarding the company’s cloud service strategy at the Mamut Capital Markets Day on November 10.
