Connector Systems and Unitrends have signed a distribution agreement, bringing unified data protection without limits to the ANZ Markets.

Distributing the entire Unitrends product range, the Value Added Distributor will take charge of stock including Hardware Appliances, Virtual Appliances and Cloud Protection,

“We are hugely excited to be adding Unitrends to our Storage, Back-up and Virtualisation division,” says Mark Dasent, GM, Connector Systems.

“Unitrends is an incredibly exciting vendor having just reported tremendous growth in Q2 2013, marking the company's 18th consecutive record quarter.”

Dasent says the business achieved 67% growth in bookings, Q2 2013 over Q2 2012, and added nearly 800 new customers throughout the first half of 2013. The company now serves more than 4,000 customers worldwide and, despite expansion, has maintained a customer satisfaction rating exceeding 98%.

Unitrends on the other hand are the fastest growing backup and recovery provider serving mid-market companies.

“We are delighted to be working with such a strong partner in ANZ and we look forward to firmly establishing Unitrends in the NZ market and then replicating the explosive growth we have experienced globally," says Brett Lieblich, International Account director, Unitrends.

"Unitrends has been so successful these past few years because we've taken the time to identify core metrics across all key areas of the business and have put the resources in place to support each one," adds Mike Coney, president and CEO, Unitrends.

"It's easy to put a laser focus on revenue and sales, but customer support, cutting-edge technology, industry-leading channel programs and strategic partnerships must also be prioritised equally.”
