BackupAssist thinks that being able to back up cloud data locally, with minimal storage requirements, will appeal to MSPs and lead to a surge of new MSP partners.
ECi, which acquired ERP vendor Macola last year, has made another acquisition relevant to their Manufacturing Division, purchasing Vineyardsoft, whose KnowledgeSync product was already being used by Macola and every other member of the Division. Vineyardsoft sold entirely through channels, and the plan is to expand those channels further.
FileCloud has been selling their Enterprise File Sync and Sharing Solution mainly direct, and through larger MSPs who do their own hosting. However, they just launched a partner program for smaller MSPs looking to resell a service that FileCloud hosts, and are looking – selectively – for additional partners.
Brother has completed its transformation from a purely direct dealing vendor to a 100 per cent focused channel player targeting SMBs, and has built up its channel to the point where they don’t have to pound the pavement for more partners. The perception that they are a consumer brand? Well, they continue to work hard to change that.
