"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.”
