Taunton, UK, 23rd November 2012: Just six weeks after it announced its new partner programme, DESlock Limited, the UK leader in data encryption solutions, has signed Probrand and is currently in discussions with a number of other channel industry heavyweights. Probrand Ltd is one of its first new partners since the programme was initiated, it’s a UK leader in end-to-end IT provision and a multi-million pound supplier of top branded computer products.
Kevin Percy, UK Business Development Manager for DESlock is focused on signing up new partners, increasing brand awareness and sales: “We’ve been really pleased with how well received the DESlock brand has been in the channel community. DESlock is a best of breed encryption product and I think that many of the companies that we have been talking to recognise the benefits of best of breed versus an all-in-one solution. One of the key aspects that impressed us about Probrand is that it is a very customer centric supplier. Probrand tries hard to get under the skin of its customer’s requirements, which is very similar to the approach we take at DESlock.”
Probrand offers a comprehensive portfolio of vendors covering every category of IT for both private and public sector organisations. DESlock is joining Probrand’s vendor program and will be one of the products that Probrand offers to its customers. Peter Robins, Managing Director, Probrand comments: “We undertake a huge amount of outbound direct marketing on behalf of our vendors targeting our vast customer base, which is what made us very appealing to DESlock. We are always looking for new, best-in-class products and we immediately recognised the quality of DESlock’s encryption solutions.”
In the bid to extend its channel, DESlock is also currently speaking to a number of top tier resellers in the UK. Having recently signed deals with Insight, Phoenix Software, Storm Technologies and MSS UK, Kevin Percy continues: “As well as the fantastic names we’re already partnering with, I’ve had very positive discussions with top tier resellers such as Trustmarque, Centerprise, Equanet and Computacenter amongst others, and we are now seeing a number of these discussions turn into commercial opportunities which we hope to announce soon.”
As part of the new DESlock partner programme, partners that deal direct with DESlock will immediately earn a 20 percent margin. DESlock has also recently introduced a new deal registration programme whereby resellers that register a genuine deal with DESlock that meets the registration criteria will get paid 10 percent. If the deal is then closed, the reseller can therefore receive a total 30 percent margin.
