Verio Launches Stimulus Package for viaVerio Channel Partners
Denver, CO and Reston, VA – March 16, 2009 – Verio Inc., the leading provider in delivering online business solutions to SMBs worldwide, including web hosting, application hosting and Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced at the viaVerio Partner Summit the launch of a stimulus package to help current and prospective partners grow their business and secure new customers. At a time when many companies are experiencing serious decline and hosting vendors are eliminating partner resources all together, Verio continues to invest in its channel partners to help them grow their business in 2009 and beyond.
“We are committed to the success of our partners and believe the program incentives offered through our stimulus package will deliver much needed resources and provide a bit of relief in this current economic climate,” said Scott Calvert, Senior Director of Channel Sales for Verio. “In addition, our partners can rest assured knowing they are working with a hosting provider that is stable, reliable, and financially sound and offering the best margins in the industry. The investments we continue to make to our viaVerio Partner Program is truly a differentiator for us and is unmatched by the other hosting providers in the industry.”
Verio’s stimulus package has been designed to provide partners with additional tools and resources to aggressively grow their business, secure new customers and further engage current customers. The program is also a testament to Verio’s commitment to providing partners with support that goes beyond helping them to be successful with Verio but rather helping them to be successful in all aspects of their business.
Verio’s stimulus package program incentives include:
* Assistance To Partners Migrating Customers To Verio – Given the current economic climate, there is a considerable amount of consolidation taking place amongst channel partners in the industry. Verio will provide technical and/or financial assistance to current or prospective partners who are interested in migrating new customers over to Verio.
* Pre-qualified New Customer Opportunities – Partners will receive opportunities who have expressed a specific interest in purchasing a Verio solution, have been pre-qualified and are ready to purchase immediately. Partners will close, service and support the customer, as well as receive the monthly recurring revenue stream as long as they remain with Verio.
* viaVerio Sales Team (VST) – The viaVerio sales team is a dedicated resource for partners to support their ongoing business efforts. The VST also acts as an extension of a partner’s sales force and provides sales and technical support to assist partners in aggressively growing their business. The teams are comprised of four Verio sales representatives and one channel account manager working in collaboration towards a single goal and quota that is aligned with the success of the partners they support.
* viaMail – viaMail is a sales tool that allows partners to easily and cost effectively develop low cost, professional, direct mail campaigns. The viaMail tool provides postcard and greeting card templates in a wide variety of sizes for partners to launch mail campaigns as a means to acquire new customers without having to engage an outside creative agency or direct mail provider.
“We have experienced firsthand Verio’s direct approach to helping partners grow their business and we have benefited tremendously,” said Mark Sharkey, viaVerio Partner and Owner of PrecisionPros. “Verio assisted us in the migration of a sizable customer base that we acquired and their support made the move seamless. As a result, their support has helped us grow our business at a time when growth can be challenging.”
The viaVerio Partner Program is designed to offer web designers, developers, ISVs, MSPs and service oriented VARs a turnkey solution for selling Verio’s hosting plans and services. Verio’s partner program is renowned for its ease-of-use and business tools, making it simple to manage clients and accounts and to create a residual revenue stream.
