Dropbox, CharTec Partner on Cloud-based File Sharing

CharTec will act as a distributor of sorts for DropBox, the cloud-based file sharing service, MSPmentor has confirmed.

Dropbox, the cloud-based file sharing and document management giant, has inked a partnership with CharTec, MSPmentor has confirmed. CharTec, which promotes hardware as a service and MSP sales training, will promote the Dropbox service to its partner network.

According to a prepared statement from both companies:

"CharTec's partnership with Dropbox offers a unique opportunity for CharTec Partners to join the Dropbox Partner Network, where they will receive discounts on Dropbox for Business and earn recurring revenue."

File sharing services and related partner programs have flooded the IT channel in recent months. In addition to established giants like Box and DropBox, there are upstart offerings like Anchor, Egnyte HybridCloudLogMeIn Cubby, Novell Filr and plenty more.

But DropBox ranks among the best-known options and the company's growing partner program seems to have momentum. True believers include TechSquad IT, an MSP in Waukesha, Wis., that now offers Dropbox to its SMB customers.

Chatter about the CharTec relationship has been moving about the channel for several weeks, and has now been confirmed. CharTec is an interesting partner because the company has a loyal following of MSPs that participate in CharTec Academy.

Moreover, CharTec's business relationship with ConnectWise could, in theory, lead DropBox to extend its footprint into the IT Nation community -- which typically leverages ConnectWise, CharTec, LabTech Software and/or Quosal solutions.
