RENO, Nev., Sept. 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Encompass Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets:ECMH), www.encompassholdings.com, reports that its wholly owned subsidiary, Quadrant Data Systems, Inc. (QDS-I), announced today the launch of an aggressive new marketing initiative designed to accelerate customer contacts and generate new sales.

"We have established a flexible campaign template that involves a powerful mix of mailings, incentives, radio advertising and hosted seminars. In each case, we are highlighting a very specific product, identifying a distinct target market, and then pushing a definitive message designed to generate an immediate sales opportunity," explained Renee Hawk, Quadrant's newly appointed Director of Marketing and Administrative Services.

Quadrant plans to lead off by focusing on Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Suite. "We see a large pent-up demand from businesses that have invested in an internal Microsoft Exchange Email system but are now beginning to recognize the significant cost savings and operational advantages of a hosted environment. Our proposition is very simple – under our management, we will guarantee a successful migration of a client's internal email system to the cloud without a single moment of downtime," said Joseph Berardi, Quadrant's CEO.

"We think this is a very compelling offer to the business owner. Businesses in our target market have been hamstrung by the costs and complexities of maintaining and upgrading their own email systems while at the same time forgoing many of the features indispensable in today's email-centric climate, such as smart-phone synchronization and web conferencing. With one simple decision, management can get rid of that server everybody has been afraid to touch and begin to use email the way it was intended – ubiquitously and reliably. The bottom line makes this a very simple decision – the total cost for Exchange Online is $5/mo. per mailbox," said Kirk Hurford, Quadrant's Chief Operating Officer.

Scott Webber, CEO of Encompass Holdings, added, "The brilliant element of Quadrant's plan, in executing the first phase of this new initiative, is that every prospect for Microsoft Hosted Exchange is an ideal candidate for Quadrant's other services, such as colocation and managed virtual servers. This program places the prospective client in a positive relationship where Quadrant can be a trusted partner for these important services. In other business, look for important rotary engine news late next week.
