Intermedia expands into Australia and New Zealand
With great restraint, this humble product marketing manager will resist the urge to make Crocodile Dundee references. Instead, I will simply report our very exciting news: Intermedia has officially announced our presence in Australia and New Zealand.
And we’re launching things with a bang: an agreement with Ingram Micro Australia, a key channel partner. (“Ingram Micro Australia’s Cloud team is pleased to work closely with Intermedia to further enable our channel partners to realise the promise of cloud services and empower their customers to compute anywhere,” says Daniel Dainton, Ingram Micro’s Senior Regional Manager – Cloud, ANZ.)
Our ANZ presence will by led by Jeremy Hulse, our newly appointed managing director for the region. Jeremy brings nearly 30 years’ experience as a regional business leader, having worked at Oracle, Cisco, Nortel Systems and security vendor M86. He will establish a full-scale operation including sales, marketing and support staff.
The industry is already talking about it:
Helping partners profit from a US$2B market
According to Gartner, the market for public cloud services in Australia and New Zealand is estimated to be US$2 billion in 2014. Annual growth is projected to be at 14% in 2014, with the vast majority of the SMB market segment being served by channel partners.
And that’s where we come in. Our cloud platform is built for the channel. Not only does our Office in the Cloud™ encompass Hosted Exchange, SecuriSync® file sync and share and Intermedia AppID™ for single sign-on, but it enables partners to create cross-service efficiencies. That’s because all our services are integrated into HostPilot®, so there’s just one login, one password, one bill and one source of support. Partners can also integrate with QuickBooks, ConnectWise and Salesforce.
Why partner with Intermedia ANZ?
Intermedia’s award-winning partner program enables partners to profit from the cloud without changing how you do business.
Unlike other providers, which typically subordinate the partner’s brand and lack flexibility, we let partners choose on a customer-by-customer basis between our Advisor and Private Label models.
You stay in control over billing, bundling, branding and every aspect of your customer relationship. We support you with premium marketing tools and resources for building awareness and driving demand. There are no minimums, commitments or program fees.
Or, as a certain 80s icon would say: “That’s not a partner program. THIS is a partner program!”
