Partnership will deliver Hosted Windows Desktops and other Cloud Services to the accounting markets and the channel partners that serve them
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 4, 2009 -- Zlago, a leading provider of hosted Windows desktops and Cloud services to businesses and the channel partners who serve them, and Network Management Group, Inc. (NMGI), a professional services firm offering a wide range of technology and management services to clients nationwide, announced that they have partnered to deliver a full suite of services including Hosted Windows desktops, servers, hosted Exchange, and other Cloud services to the accounting market and the VARs that serve them. Technology Services Corporation (www.techservcorp.com) is a fifteen year old managed services organization that will be providing these products and services under the var2var brand. The announcement came today at the ConnectWise Partner Summit 2009 in Orlando.
The Zlago Cloud services solution set includes hosted Microsoft Windows desktops, Exchange email, collaboration, SaaS business applications, virtual servers, VOIP phone service, security, backup, storage and more. No matter where you are, as long as you have access to the Internet, you have access to your desktop, your operations and accounting software and files, customer files, CRM and other client/server based applications, e-mail, shared network folders and files and more. Gone are the days of allocating costly capital to servers, software, hardware, upgrades, telephony systems, and maintenance, not to mention the sleepless nights associated with worrying about IT infrastructure uptime. Zlago supports their channel partners with 24x7 maintenance, back up, and up to 99.99% guaranteed uptime. And all are hosted within a highly-secure environment.
The accounting, legal, insurance, financial services, hotel, marketing, medical, construction, and human resources industries are just a sample of the verticals that have flourished within Zlago’s Cloud environment.
Michael Gold, CEO of Zlago said, “Our partnership with Steve Harper, CEO of NMGI to further develop the accounting vertical market is a very exciting opportunity. NMGI has a long, respected history in the accounting market, which is only enhanced by its relationship with K2 Enterprises, the preeminent provider of technology-focused continuing professional education to accountants and other professionals throughout North America.”
NMGI will partner with Zlago as a Master VAR and will develop the Independent Solution Consultant partner program with Zlago. NMGI will focus on working with smaller VARS and sales agent who have a background in selling IT products and services to and with accounting firms. The consultants, small VARs and sales agents will be able to sell the complete suite of Zlago services under this program.
Steve Harper, CEO of NMGI said, “We believe Zlago will be one of our most significant vendor partnerships as we move into 2010 and the cloud services market continues to gain momentum. Zlago is a single-source provider for a broad range of world-class services, and that is a compelling value proposition for us and our partners. The Zlago Hosted Desktop and cloud services solution was the most versatile, complete, and responsive solution we came across. Coupled with terrific support and their competitive price, Zlago was the obvious choice. Our partnership with Zlago is a continuation of our goal to provide the best of breed solutions to the channel.”
Partners can work with Technology Services Corporation as well as Zlago directly. Zlago’s Partner Program has three categories:
Independent Solution Consultant:
The Zlago Independent Solutions Consultant (ISC) is generally someone who has a background in selling IT products and services to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), but does not necessarily have a technical service background. Zlago’s ISC program allows ISCs to sell the complete suite of Zlago services, while Zlago provides all the technical and administrative services required to support the ISC’s customers.
The Solution Provider Program (SP) is for VARs and Solution Providers who are currently selling products and services and providing technical support to an installed base of customers. Solution Providers can earn higher recurring revenue by providing technical support around Zlago products. Solution providers have the opportunity to bundle their own service offerings with Zlago services and also have the option to customize their relationship with Zlago and may choose to have Zlago provide billing and administrative service.
Private Label Partner:
The Private Label Partner Program (PLP) is offered to qualified VARS, Solution Providers and systems integrators who want to integrate Zlago services into their current product and service offerings and sell them under their existing brand or co-brand with Zlago. Private Label Partners are responsible for billing and administration as well as service and support for their customers. Zlago provides PLP’s with 24x7 tech support.
