Hampshire, United Kingdom – (The Hosting News) – July 17, 2008 – Website hosting and Internet access provider, Cobweb Solutions, recently offered resellers, an opportunity to join its partnership, at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Houston.
The new Partner Programme was launched, in order to offer opportunities to resellers of all sizes revenue and business growth opportunities, as the company grows to 100,000 hosted mailboxes and expands services available.
Mark Adams, Managing Director, at Cobweb noted, ”As new technologies continue to emerge, SMEs are forced to allocate additional budget to remain technologically competitive. But in the current economic climate this is becoming unsustainable and SMEs are waking up to the inherent benefits of outsourcing key parts of their IT infrastructure. By partnering with Cobweb, resellers can take advantage of this market opportunity. Our hosted services and solutions are flexible and scalable enough to handle the full range of businesses from small to large and our pricing model offers attractive revenue opportunities.”
Cobweb is the UK’s largest provider of Hosted Exchange services delivering outsourced email, online backup and support services to over 6,000 SMEs. Over the next six months, Cobweb plans to roll out hosted CRM, Unified Messaging and HR applications which will enable channel partners to offer SMEs access to effective technological solutions at a price point they can afford.
The Cobweb Partner Programme ticks all the boxes and is designed to deliver the right offer, at the right time, in the right place, to the right people backed up by Gartner’s prediction that the number of worldwide enterprise seats using Hosted Exchange will grow from 1% in 2007 to 20% of seats by 2012. This is reinforced by their assertion that ‘the market for hosted email mailbox services is poised for rapid growth due to the economics of ‘cloud computing’.
The website www.hostedservices.com has been launched for the Partner Programme which offers four different levels; White Label; Sell With Premier; Sell With and Refer. Each tier presents a compelling proposition for resellers with appropriate levels of branding, marketing, technical, service and training support as well as lead generation and collateral.
Mr. Adams added, ”The conference gives us a unique opportunity to expand our business by connecting with UK delegates and interacting with the wider Microsoft community. There will be over 500 UK delegates, representing some 250 companies, making it the ideal platform to launch our new Partner Programme.”
