Microsoft Live@edu helps College and IT Administrators save ‘time & money’

Single e-mail system, offered free to universities, helps students communicate and share work with colleagues from any location. Free to educational institutions and end users, Live@edu helps universities streamline communications with students through one e-mail system, providing a single, true source of information. “Hosting university e-mail on Microsoft servers can reduce traffic on local servers, saving on maintenance, effort and cost. Missouri State University has four campuses serving about 25,000 students. Maintaining an e-mail system for that many students is difficult in terms of providing reliable functionality as well as staffing enough people to oversee the system. Implementing Live@edu services made a lot of sense for this large university. And, only one half-time person would be needed on site at Missouri State to maintain the new system. “The university is saving $50,000 per year in hardware and licensing alone,” Day says. “We’re ahead of the curve. When budget crunches hit the university in 2009, our department had already saved.”
