The dealer network is growing and tightening

The number of IT professionals choosing to offer their customers Swedish storage at Storegate is growing and the reseller network now extends from Simrishamn to Pajala.

Resellers are and usually act as support and full IT solution providers for companies in a variety of industries. They are an important contact point with the market and Storegate is looking at ways to develop the cooperation, says Torbjörn Lindkvist, Marketing Manager at Storegate.

- Although most of our products are very easy to use, our end customers are confident to have support and help to set up more advanced installations such as backup solutions for server systems, or a larger administration for collaboration and sharing of folders and files with different permissions. They're valuable to us, and in the context of the other initiatives we're making now, we're obviously also looking at how best to take the concept further and strengthen it.

During the autumn, Storegate has been running a campaign for resellers to drive more customers to the blue cloud.

- We have good dealers in the country who care about their customers and take their problems and concerns seriously. It's nice to know that the customers we reach through them are also well taken care of and feel confident about their data management and storage. In addition, they are an excellent channel for us when we are not on site and can help our customers hands-on, so to speak. Many people who choose us also choose us for the security of Swedish storage, so it's nice that this feeling can accompany the entire customer experience. That's why it's great to be able to give something back.

In January, retailers who reach the campaign targets will receive an extra bonus on top of their regular commission - as a good start to 2017.
