Veeam Software has launched the Veeam Accredited Service Partner (VASP), a programme that highlights a select list of partners, distributors, system integrators and freelance IT consultants that possess the necessary technical skills to deliver valuable and reliable professional services for Veeam product portfolio implementations.
As deployments get more sophisticated, Veeam recognises the increasing demand from customers and prospective clients to identify specialists that can partner with their businesses. VASP members will deliver high-quality services related to Veeam solutions and help an organisation realise increased reliability, along with greater value and return of investment (ROI) of their IT investments.
VASP will feature in the Veeam ProPartner Program, which now boasts over 45,000 members. A focus on including quality members of VASP over a high quantity ensures a level of exclusivity for those looking to achieve the recommendation, and an opportunity to differentiate.
“The relationship between a customer and its IT vendors is evolving. With more customers looking for vendors to recommend experienced professional service partners that can help the internal team maximise ROI and create bespoke solutions for ever-more sophisticated IT estates,” said Gilles Pommier, vice president of EMEA Channel Sales, Veeam Software. “The benefit of us launching VASP is two-fold: it helps answer customer’s needs, while providing our partners with new revenue opportunities. With the launch of VASP today, we’re offering partners extra support from senior Veeam resources, NFR licenses and intellectual property that will enable them to differentiate and add significant value to customers, while helping partners become more profitable from Veeam solutions.”
“We are delighted that we were chosen to become one of the first VASPs and feel this is great recognition in both our technical skills and company-wide investment in the Veeam technology over the past seven years,” said Chris Moss, marketing director at System Professional. “Veeam are a key technology partner for us, since we not only provide Veeam data availability and disaster recovery solutions to our customers, but also use their technologies extensively in our data centre cloud platform.”
“Our collaboration with Veeam has always been successful and we are honoured now to become one of the first Veeam Accredited Service partners,” said Børge Wilhelmsen, partner manager of Atea. “Delivering high quality services to customers is our main priority, and we appreciate that Veeam acknowledges that is driving us to do more of this too. With VASP, Veeam is providing extra support to its partners that are helping make that happen. In the current highly competitive partner landscape it is important to differentiate yourself from rivals, and this new Veeam program helps us to do that, but also enjoy the added benefits too.”
