StorageCraft is rolling out a new global partner program with training and margin benefits designed to reward its most productive channel partners.
The new StorageCraft Partner Network allows IT service providers to have easy access to the company’s “rapidly expanding line of intelligent data-protection solutions while maximizing their profits,” the company said. It includes redesigned online curriculum for earning engineering certification.
The eLearning resources aim to help partners stay current on new intelligent business continuity services such as StorageCraft Cloud Services and Gillware Online Backup.
“StorageCraft has built a loyal 11,000-member partner network because we have developed strong relationships, provided meaningful benefits and delivered intelligent solutions,” said Marvin Blough, StorageCraft’s vice president of worldwide sales. “We understand that for the company to be successful, our partners must be successful. The new StorageCraft partner program reinforces that principle.”
Partners also will have the opportunity to use the soon-to-be-released StorageCraft Cloud to Cloud, a data-protection offering for Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps, Salesforce.com and Box. When used in combination, these services provide “even more efficient and rapid recovery of mission-critical data,” the company said.
Additionally, eLearning resources are aimed at helping partners maximize their benefits available to them, such as the tiered pricing structure for Silver, Gold and Platinum partners.
The new program features a redesigned single-login, self-service portal that allows MSPs and VARs to easily manage their StorageCraft accounts. It also provides benefits such as profit margin enhancements, deal registration and automated marketing tools.
Also, a “Recovery Guarantee” soon will be announced that “sets StorageCraft apart from any other recovery solution on the market,” the company said.
