The new program offers current and future partners the ability to build new solutions and add new revenue streams with Zlago’s cloud services platform, which includes hosted Microsoft Windows desktops, Exchange e-mail, collaboration, SaaS business applications, virtual servers, VoIP phone service, security, backup, storage and more.
The Zlago partner program include three levels of participation.
- Solution Providers –VARs and other solution providers currently selling products and services and providing technical support to an installed base of customers can bundle their own service offerings with Zlago services and can customize their level of service from Zlago by choosing to have Zlago provide billing and administrative services.
- Private-Label Partners – VARS, solution providers and systems integrators also can integrate Zlago services into their current product and service offerings and sell them under their existing brand or co-brand with Zlago. Private-label partners are responsible for billing and administration as well as service and support for their customers. Zlago provides private-label partners with 24/7 tech support.
- Independent Solution Consultants – Partners with a background in selling IT products and services to small and medium-sized businesses, but without a technical service background can sell the complete suite of Zlago services while Zlago provides all the technical and administrative services required to support customers.
“Delivering hosted desktops to SMBs is a very large opportunity for VARs,” said Steve Harper, president of Network Management Group Inc.. “Zlago provides a high-quality and channel-friendly solution that allows us to quickly and cost effectively support our customers and gain a strong new revenue stream.”
“From our research, Zlago is one of the best companies for channel partners to work with in the hosted desktop category, and we also like that they integrate other Cloud services that we need to offer to our business customers,” said Larry Baum, CEO of The Computing Center. “Zlago is helping us get to market with this new business while avoiding additional build-out and investment in expensive infrastructure ourselves.”
