Cryoserver, the leading forensic email compliance company, today announces the addition of three high profile resellers to its Channel Partner Programme. Repton, a leading systems integrator, Storm Technologies, a leading HP and IBM reseller, and Elcom, a leading multi-vendor hardware, software and solutions reseller have all joined the scheme as Cryoserver Gold partners.
Since its inception earlier this year, Cryoserver's channel partner programme has flourished in the ever expanding email management sector, its progress being demonstrated by the three high profile additions to the more exclusive Gold programme. Recent months have seen some alarming consequences of the mismanagement of email, including large financial penalties for organisations such as Morgan Stanley and Bank of America, and as a result, the need for forensic email archiving is swiftly moving up the priority list of companies across all sectors.
"The addition of Repton, Storm Technologies, and Elcom as Cryoserver Gold partners, demonstrates the rapid growth and further potential of Cryoserver in this marketplace," said Mike Berry, Vice President Sales at Cryoserver. "It is a testament that three high profile resellers such as these were willing to commit the time to undergo our tough vetting process to become Gold partners. It goes without saying they all needed to acquire good knowledge of the product, but perhaps more impressive was their ability to demonstrate high standards of compliance knowledge."
Headquartered in Middlesex, Repton is a global supplier of IT solutions and services to the MLE (Medium and Large Enterprise) marketplace. A HP Premier Partner, it is also a leading supplier of key manufacturers such as IBM, Cisco, Sun and 3COM. Storm Technologies is a Microsoft certified business solutions partner, a HP Premier Partner and storage specialist based in Watford. It is a leading reseller of IT hardware, software, networking and peripherals products from companies including HP, IBM, Dell, Microsoft, Cisco and Citrix. Elcom is one of the top five corporate IT resellers in the UK, supplying technology products, services and solutions to the corporate business market. Based in Berkshire and Hampshire, Elcom is a HP Select Reseller, Microsoft Partner, Dell reseller, IBM Premier Business Partner and Fujitsu Siemens Corporate reseller of the year.
Robin Porter of Repton commented, "This partnership with Cryoserver is a representation of how important effective email management is becoming in the marketplace. We see that customers appreciate Cryoserver's forensic approach because they recognise so much can depend on the contents of just one single email. Cryoserver's solution and approach is refreshingly simple meaning we can easily differentiate against more cumbersome alternatives. Whilst it's true to say Cryoserver are quite demanding in the level of technical and sales training they ask their partners to undertake, we are happy to oblige as ultimately we know it's our customers who benefit."
Cryoserver is moving on to recruit more Gold partners, although there will be a maximum of ten in the UK with the aim of each possessing a clear, unique selling point. The programme requires Gold partners to use Cryoserver in their own day to day running, as well as possessing a high level of technical and sales competence. Cryoserver works with its partners on joint marketing and a strong lead generation programme to target companies across the UK.
