NEW YORK, NY — March 4, 2008 — Logicworks, a leading provider of high-availability hosting solutions to support business-critical applications and content, today announced the launch of its new Channel Partner Program, designed to provide the channel community with a range of managed database services, virtualization and high-availability solutions. The program enables Channel Partners to offer a legitimate alternative to the commoditization of hardware and telecommunications services. Leveraging Logicworks’ world-class managed services platform and data center facilities, Partners can further support the delivery of their value-added solutions model to their clients. In addition to technical expertise and support, the program features a recurring revenue-sharing business model to enable Channel Partners to start sharing in the rapid growth of the complex hosting sector.
“A partner program structured like Logicworks’ is an attractive option for the channel community because it enables ISVs, VARs, systems integrators, IT consultants and resellers to capitalize on their customers’ adoption of managed services, and build stable annuity-based revenue streams,” said Benjamin S. Woo, Vice President, Enterprise Storage Systems, IDC and Logicworks Advisory Board member. “Logicworks’ expertise in complex hosting and managed services provides Channel Partners and their clients a solid infrastructure on which to run their businesses.”
The channel community provides an ideal platform for Logicworks’ services and 24×7 operational support. While Logicworks provides the operating infrastructure, supporting the elements of redundancy and availability, Logicworks’ Partners can provide support for the application layer, as well as client end-user support.
Channel Partners can extend a unique value proposition to their customers by offering managed database and hosting services in a “nothing shared” environment for their mission critical data with Logicworks’ “No Transactions Lost” guarantee. Logicworks’ offers an attractive residual revenue model with Partners for the life of the account which also covers upgrades. By combining this revenue sharing model with the highest quality of trusted service, Partners are able to facilitate new recurring revenue streams and grow profitably.
“We structured this Partner Program to provide the channel community with the trust and commitment that is needed to be successful long-term,” said Gregg Kitaeff, vice president of sales, Logicworks. “Our revenue model is reflective of our commitment to our channel partners and the incentives offered make this program one of the most attractive on the market. Logicworks guarantees the complex managed hosting and infrastructure so our channel partners can enable their customers to focus on the growth of their core businesses.”
Logicworks offers lead exclusivity to all of its Partners–ensuring the highest levels of protection and trust for all referrals and leads. Partners also benefit from the fact that Logicworks’ only business is complex managed hosting, providing assurance that Logicworks’ service delivery will not impact its partners’ ability to provide their own services. Partners may also choose to private label Logicworks’ services through a Software-as-a-Service framework, by providing services to multiple clients in a single high-availability architecture, or by directly reselling Logicworks’ services.
