Global disaster recovery firm StorageCraft Technology has signed a UK distribution agreement with SMB channel distributor Blue Solutions.
StorageCraft, which recently set up its international headquarters in Ireland, is looking for the deal to expand its end-user and partner base in Europe starting with the key UK market.
“We are delighted to continue to grow our collaboration with Blue Solutions in the United Kingdom,” said Ian Mason, StorageCraft sales director Europe. “We already work with a network of managed service providers and value-added resellers in the United Kingdom, and we are now looking forward to better serving this market through our niche distributor Blue Solutions.”
The deal will see Blue Solutions acting as master managed service provider and distributor for StorageCrafts range of back up, disaster recovery, system migration and data protection solutions.
“We have an exciting range of data backup and recovery solutions that is specifically targeted to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses. We are confident the distributor dealership with Blue Solutions will help us expand our U.K. operations,” concluded Mason.
"We only work with vendors that we believe have products and services that add competitive advantage to our customers' business. This is most certainly the case with the StorageCraft product range and the flagship ShadowProtect product line,” said Mark Charleton, co-founder and director of Blue Solutions.
“Using our in-house product experts and team of passionate staff, we will actively recruit new resellers, incentivise, train and support them long-term,” Charleton explained. “The StorageCraft partner program is a very attractive one -- no fees to sign up, NFR (not for resale) software, training, marketing incentives, etc. -- and we will provide all the support, training and marketing collateral for resellers to take out to end-user customers. ”
