Reseller Pitches Low Cost Ipswitch Products To Expanding Sector

Ipswitch, Inc., a leading supplier of Internet productivity software for Windows, today announced that UK software reseller, Highlander, is using its products as the core of a campaign to target the growing government sector. Market leaders in their field, Ipswitch’s web-based email server IMail Server, networking monitor WhatsUp Gold, and popular file transfer product WS_FTP Server, are ideal solutions for a government sector buoyed by the recent egovernment directives.

Highlander was formed in 1995, originally specialising in helping developers of C++, VB, and Delphi find the right third party tools to speed up their development. Seven years later the company still helps developers speed things up, but the focus has well and truly moved. Highlander’s product range now focuses around Internet, Intranet and general application development, and includes solutions from Ipswitch, Macromedia and Sun. Highlander purchases Ipswitch’s products through UK distributor, Unipalm.

“Ipswitch products are perfectly suited to government institutions due to their low cost and high functionality and the fact that they are easy to install,” commented Ipswitch’s European MD, Paul White. “IMail Server in particular has historically been very popular in the public sector market with numerous high profile education institutions relying on the product for email communication. The government market is a perfect extension to this.”

Highlander’s MD, Andy Gardiner agreed: “With the current high profile e-government initiatives, local governments are investing strongly in IT. Yet government organisations are cost led, which makes Ipswitch’s products so attractive. IMail Server, WhatsUp Gold and WS_FTP Server offer a wealth of functionally at a fraction of the cost of its competitors.”

“We have been working with Ipswitch for four years and use all of the products internally so act as a perfect case study, highlighting the benefits, benefits which we naturally want to extend to our customers,” added Gardiner.
