/ Source: GlobeNewswire

NORCROSS, Ga., April 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EasyLink Services International Corporation ("EasyLink" or "Company") (Nasdaq:ESIC) (), a global provider of comprehensive messaging services and e-commerce solutions, in recognition of Earth Day on Friday, April 22, 2011, is reminding companies that implementing cloud-based fax messaging solutions can significantly support initiatives to increase sustainable business practices and reduce their carbon footprint.

EasyLink's desktop and production messaging solutions replace fax machines and fax servers with a robust and secure cloud-based alternative which saves energy and eliminates the need for paper and consumables, while increasing the speed and efficiency in which fax messages are received and transmitted.

EasyLink estimates that by replacing ten high volume fax machines with a hosted fax service, a company can save a minimum of $5,100 a year in electrical and supply costs, while automating paper-intensive business processes. Reducing even a fraction of the paper used for faxing purposes will help protect thousands of forest acreage.  

"EasyLink's outsourced messaging solutions enable our customers to slash infrastructure costs while implementing green IT practices that reduce energy consumption and decrease the inefficiencies inherent in manual, paper-heavy processes," said Kevin Maloney, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, EasyLink Services.
