Happy Thursday, and thanks for checking in for our weekly roundup of channel partner news. This week we’ve got the latest developments from Cirrity, LANDESK and SPLICE Software.
July 9, 2015
The partnerships were formed through a promotional campaign with Comstor, after Cirrity entered into an agreement with the distributor earlier this year. All four companies will resell Cirrity’s suite of Cisco Powered secure cloud solutions, including its IaaS, DaaS, BaaS and DRaaS products, according to the announcement.
“We are excited to be in a great position to help all parts of the supply chain to fully benefit from the value of as-a-service solutions,” said Matt Karst, Comstor senior director of Cloud Solutions, in a statement. “Our partnership with Cirrity allows our customers the ability to significantly protect current investments, remain relevant for end users, and build current and future revenue streams.”
LANDESK: System management provider LANDESK Software has been certified to resell WinMagic’s suite of SecureDoc products as part of the company’s LANDESK One Partner Program, according to the announcement.
The integration will allow LANDESK to expand its security management software portfolio while simultaneously allowing security professionals to utilize a single tool for querying and reporting on encryption status alongside other hardware or software attributes, the company said.
"The partnership between LANDESK and WinMagic allows LANDESK customers to better utilize WinMagic's … encryption capabilities," said Steve Workman, vice president of strategy at LANDESK. "WinMagic's approach to full disk encryption (FDE) was a main impetus for our partnership."
SPLICE: Communications service provider SPLICE Software has launched a new customer satisfaction metric solution called the SPLICE Delivery Survey Program, which allows users to gather customer data to ultimately improve user loyalty and potentially generate additional sales.
The customizable solution allows users to survey participants in specific regions, cities or by delivery team, with personalized caller ID to prepare customers for participation, according to the announcement. SPLICE said its voice surveys typically generate double the average response rates of email surveys, giving companies reach to more customers than with traditional methods. Voice surveys can be completed in fewer than two minutes.
“The SPLICE Delivery Survey Program takes the ‘voice of the customer’ concept to a whole new level,” said Tara Kelly, CEO and president of SPLICE Software. “Instead of a monologue, it’s a conversation. Companies can quickly identify issues with delivery services so they can make sure customers have a positive experience from end-to-end, which improves loyalty, turns lukewarm customers into advocates, drives revenue and generates more leads.”
That’s all for this week, Roundup Rangers, but we’ll be back next week with more great channel-centric news. Until then, stay safe out there.
