COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 21, 2012 – Veeam Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V, today announced updates and enhancements to its reseller program in North America. The enhanced program includes additional margin and incentive opportunities, free technical and sales training, as well as enhanced joint marketing support.
“Our goal is to invest in the partners who are willing to invest their time and energy in us, to our mutual benefit,” said Bill Botti, Veeam Vice President of North American Sales. “As a 100 percent channel-driven company that never sells directly to end users, we recognize that our partners are critical to our success and continued growth. We’ve made our program significantly more meaningful and attractive. As a 30-year channel veteran both as a reseller and a distributor, I have a unique understanding of how the reseller model works and have worked to craft a program that creates a true valued partnership with our channel – one we can both profit from by committing to each other.”
Highlights of the new program include:
- Profitability – The new program offers increased margins based on partner tier levels, and additional profitability via deal registration and incentives for those eligible.
- Training – technical and sales enablement training, including accreditations through Veeam University, are available at no charge to Veeam ProPartners.
- Marketing support – Veeam works closely with its top partners on joint marketing activities including email campaigns, webinars, and other demand-generation events.
- Technical support – Veeam offers direct, expedited access to support resources to support optimal customer care and partner technical inquiries.
“We are excited to be part of the New Veeam ProPartner Program,” said Keith Michael Esshaki, CEO, GTC Systems, Inc. “We have been a Veeam partner for over a year and love the products and include them in our virtualization and cloud strategies. This new program provides several new benefits for us that will help accelerate our growth and profitability with Veeam. It’s the kind of program I would expect to be developed by a channel veteran like Bill Botti. The programs he crafted at Alternative Technology helped change the distribution business and were completely targeted at partner growth. I am excited to see what he is helping develop with an already great product and company like Veeam.”
