Storage and partner success

01 Feb 08

One of the largest data transcription, recovery and migration companies in the world, SpectrumData, has launched its SpectrumData Storage Success Partner Program. Under the new program, the company will be working with both traditional and non-traditional channel partners for the first time, as either a reseller partner or as a referral partner.
Reseller partners will be able to buy SpectrumData’s services and on-sell them to clients with a margin. “Resellers can now sell something additional to the client,” said Craig Tamlin, CEO of SpectrumData. “It gives the ability to provide a complete package.”
The Referral partner program is for companies that are unable to transact as a reseller partner, such as vendors. It enables them to accumulate reward points, which are provided by a pre-paid data debit card and can be redeemed for goods and services worldwide.
While SpectrumData has no NZ reseller partners currently, Tamlin is hoping that will change. “NZ is green fields for us, with lots of opportunities,” he said. “Coming from a background of oil and gas, we now want to extend our reach beyond that.”
