Splashtop Doubles Down on the Channel to Meet Growing Demand for Secure Remote Access and Support Solutions
There's a growing need among organizations of all sizes, across all sectors for secure remote access and remote support solutions. To satisfy this need, Splashtop has double downed on its global channel strategy. The company recently added new channel leaders for the Americas and EMEA and is rolling-out new programs to nurture partnerships with VARs, MSPs, distributors and technology partners.
The fact is hybrid/remote work and education are no longer simply trends caused by the pandemic. They are the new normal.
While many companies are still figuring out when or if they will return to a brick-and-mortar office, the list of work from home forever companies keeps growing. During the Code Conference in September, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff told the audience “I’m sorry to all my friends, but we’re not all going back.”
For education, demand for remote learning options continues to increase. Between July and September of 2021, in a review of 100 large and urban US school systems, demand for remote learning more than doubled. Further to that, in an August 2021 Splashtop study of 500 students, nearly all (92 percent) expect their colleges and universities to offer remote access to on-campus computers, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
In the Americas, Splashtop recently announced the addition of Justin Windsor as the company’s first channel chief. He was previously channel manager at Zadara, which offers Compute and Storage as a Service.
Justin’s vision for channel partners is to drive mutual revenue for Splashtop and its dedicated partners. All while protecting more organizations with Splashtop’s remote access and support portfolio. When speaking of partners, he said, “People work with people who they trust. I want to earn the trust of our partners to then help them drive revenue while improving educational and workplace productivity in the hybrid world we live in. We want partnerships – based on accountability of both sides.”
You can watch Justin talk about his journey in the channel and how he plans to build Splashtop’s partner program in his recent interview with eChannel News.
The rapid rise of remote working has driven significant global expansion for Splashtop in EMEA, as well. To address the surge in demand, the company recently announced Nickey Ikelaar as Splashtop’s Head of Channel for the region.
“With a high-growth roadmap and the best Net Promoter Score in the industry, Splashtop is in an incredibly strong position right now,” Nickey explained. “We’re delighted to share this success with a new market of resellers: together, we can bring the next generation of remote access and support to EMEA and help customers keep pace with the new reality of work.”
