Zimbra Collaboration Keeps Merit Network’s Customers Connected

Merit Network is a U.S. based nonprofit service provider that serves higher education, K-12 organizations, government offices, research institutions, libraries, and other nonprofits. For nearly 50 years, Merit has provided high-performance networking and services to the research and education communities in Michigan and beyond.

The Zimbra + Merit Story

Merit’s education, government and nonprofit customers are looking for email and other hosted applications that they don’t want to run in house. A few years ago, Merit decided to move away from the email platform it had been using, and provide a better collaboration solution for its customers. Merit desired a new platform that would be easy to migrate to, that would allow its customers to securely plug into for authentication, and that could be integrated with the other enterprise applications of its customers.

Upon searching, Merit concluded that Zimbra Collaboration could best serve its customers. Merit chose Zimbra Collaboration because of its customization capabilities, cost effectiveness and rebrandable user interface.

Today, Merit provides MeritMail’s Collaboration Suite, powered by Zimbra, to numerous public sector and nonprofit customers. MeritMail includes advanced functionality and dynamic features for email, calendaring, messaging, and document sharing.
