Centennial, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – November 6, 2006 –
Hosting and managed services for small to midsized companies firm, Verio, and online product sourcing firm, Doba, have partnered to provide sourcing and web hosting services for their respective network of SMB customers and partners.
Doba provides small businesses a web-based platform that links them virtually to wholesale suppliers to facilitate order placement, shipping tracking and status updates. Small business members have access to advanced tools and educational resources to simplify the product sourcing process, and help them grow their businesses. Under the relationship, Doba will refer its more than 45,000 small business members to Verio for web hosting and managed services.
Verio will provide viaVerio resellers the opportunity to offer Doba’s services as a product offering to help their small and medium sized business customers establish an online marketplace. The viaVerio Partner Program provides SMB resellers with access to a variety of high-value hosting and managed services, as well as volume discounts, private label opportunities, and technical, sales and marketing support.
Brandon Williams, Executive Vice President of Business Development for Doba noted, ”Doba is pleased to be working with Verio. We believe Verio’s web hosting and managed services offerings will be well-received by our small business members, many of whom struggle with creating, maintaining and driving traffic to, their online businesses.”
It is hoped that through this relationship, Verio will be in a position to provide an additional source of value-added products and services to its resellers, including special discounts and promotions. Site design and marketing services, ecommerce solutions, business applications and security products are just some of the offerings Verio plans to offer through additional future affiliate relationships. Verio is establishing similar partnerships to capitalize on industry organizations and other points of aggregation that enable the company to more effectively and efficiently reach small businesses and midsize customers through non-traditional distribution channels.
Dennis Boyle, Chief Operating Officer for Verio commented, ”Establishing a web site and driving traffic to that site can be one of the biggest challenges faced by small businesses today. Verio’s quick and easy-to-use services can help to ease the anxiety of establishing, marketing and optimizing an online business, and Doba is easing the process even further by giving their members ready access to Verio services. Additionally, Verio will continue to pursue viaVerio Partner Program enhancements such as this that will provide the potential for increased revenue streams for our resellers, and help provide more choices to their customers.”
