FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - Quorum®, the leading provider of one-click backup, recovery and continuity for small to mid-sized businesses, today revealed exceptional momentum in its channel partner program. Since the end of 2011, Quorum has added a number of new channel partners to its roster, largely driven by dedication to its partners as well as demand for its one-click backup, recovery and continuity solution. This, in addition to award recognition, have all combined to ensure continued channel program momentum in the first half of 2012 and beyond.
The Quorum channel program has not gone unnoticed among leading industry outlets. In fact, Quorum was named to CRN's prestigious 2012 Virtualization 100 list in May -- a list that guides service providers in determining which virtualization companies make the best strategic partners. This recognition places Quorum among the industry's best, and highlights not only its innovation in delivering one-click backup, recovery and continuity, but also Quorum's unwavering commitment to its partners.
The CRN award is indeed a reflection of the program's success. Over the past several months, new partners from all over North America have joined Quorum's channel program, representing a 50 percent growth in its partner base. The most recent addition, PTS Data Center Solutions, was accepted as a reseller partner this month, and cited its clients' demand for a simple, cost-effective solution that safeguards their revenue, customers and reputation in the event of a disaster as a main driver for seeking a Quorum partnership.
T-COM Associates, LTD. and ESPO Systems are two more Quorum partners seeing success with the Quorum solution. "One-click backup, recovery and continuity is a fundamental need to ensure a company's continued health in the face of disaster," said Kevin J. Tangredi, T-COM Associates, LTD. "With the Quorum solution, we offer our customers the industry's only solution to meet this need, and therefore see an incredible opportunity to not only engage existing accounts, but also to generate new business."
"IT managers and system administrators face a number of potential disasters every day. Not just hurricanes, but system outages and faulty upgrades can cost a mid-sized business its entire reputation," said Nick Stricker, CISSP and vice president, ESPO Systems. "The ability for a company to rebound after a disaster depends largely on how quickly it can recover its data, applications and systems, hence in an increasingly complex and unpredictable environment, the Quorum solution is their business continuity plan."
The early success of the Quorum channel program is due not only to demand for its unique solution, but also to Quorum's focus on making its partners successful. Quorum's onboarding process, designed to get a partner productive quickly, is testament to this. Quorum's revamped partner portal contributes as well, giving partners the ability to register opportunities and view online content for sales and technical information, and to gain assistance with marketing initiatives.
"While our solution's unique ability to provide assured, one-click recovery in minutes puts us on the map, our steadfast dedication to our partners keeps us there," said Chet Menzione, vice president of channel sales, Quorum. "We look forward to building on the incredible momentum we've already attained in the years to come."
