RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – NeoNova Network Services is making Google Apps for Business available for ISPs to sell to local businesses.

Through NeoNova, ISPs now can offer a differentiated business messaging and collaboration platform that allows small-to-medium businesses (SMB) to 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.

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, administrative interface and conversion for all end-users, administrative and end-user training, integrated online training courses, a complete back-up 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 ISPs.

“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.”
