Revenue Inbox Full Deployment Scenarios

Office 365

Note

Revenue Inbox is not a standalone application: it is installed in MS Outlook Desktop, Web, or Mobile implementation as an Add-In, or in the Chrome browser as a browser Extension.

Tip

For big Enterprise customers Revenue Inbox can also be installed in a private corporate Azure cloud on back end, if that is required by the company’s security requirements. Contact our CSM team for more information about this possibility. The deployment procedures used in such scenario are identical to the regular ones used for RevenueGrid Azure servers deployment.
