Unitrends Extends Backup Exec Replacement Program Channel Partners Cheer

August 15 2012

Aggressive discount program extended after phenomenal Q2 success

Unitrends, the leading provider of integrated and scalable backup, archiving, instant recovery and disaster recovery solutions, today announced an extension to the Symantec Backup Exec competitive replacement program which expired last quarter. The promotion offers up to a 50% discount to organizations switching from Symantec Backup Exec to a Unitrends backup solution.

"Data backup is a point of contention with most companies, and ESI (Electronic Strategies, Inc.) has been in the business of providing value-driven IT solutions since 1997. We help organizations keep their information available and secure by providing a robust backup solution with appropriate retention,” said Mike Finnegan, Vice President of Sales for ESI. “The latest Unitrends promotion was not about arbitrarily “rip and replacing” Backup Exec with Unitrends, but rather a way to respond to our current customers and new prospects who are unhappy with their current backup solution. Increasing our bottom line, while providing long term value to our customers, is simply a win-win.”

Given the success of the original promotion earlier this year, Unitrends has extended the savings through September 30, 2012 and will be supporting channel partners even further with dedicated demand generation, marketing support and advertising.

“As Q2 wound to a close, my phone began ringing with partners asking for a program extension,” said Bob Gagnon, Unitrends VP of Channel Sales, “and I’m thrilled to announce we’re going to do just that. Unitrends is committed to a channel-focused sales program and we look forward to working closely together with our partners to not only deliver innovative solutions, but also disruptive pricing promotions that will allow them to grow their businesses alongside ours.”
