Kaseya South Africa, a leading provider of IT systems management software, today announced the further expansion of its local partner programme, following the appointment of Bytes Managed Solutions (MS) as a Kaseya value added reseller (VAR)
Bytes MS is a leading local provider of integrated, end-to-end solutions to large corporations in the financial, retail, hospitality, and adjacent markets, with a strong focus on managed services for product agnostic end-to-end equipment management, explains Garth Hayward, regional manager for Kaseya Africa.
“Bytes MS also has existing partnerships with a number of other hardware and software vendors, which enables it to offer its clients a variety of integrated solutions. This makes the company an ideal addition to our partner programme,” he says.
“Bytes MS is the second of three managed service providers to be appointed as a local Kaseya VAR during the first phase of the company's new programme. We are very excited about the roll-out of our partner programme as it gives us a greater ability to reach the local public and private sector through our new strategic VARs,” he explains.
According to Alan Anderson, business development director at Bytes MS, the partnership with Kaseya enables the company to offer enterprise-class IT systems management. “This gives us the ability to offer improved IT availability and automation to manage and maintain systems and devices, while reducing systems downtime and improving the user experience for our corporate customers,” he explains.
“We evaluated various suppliers of managed services software to find a suitable partner that could offer our customers a solution that is fit for purpose, easy and fast to deploy in various environments, multi-tenanted, highly secure, flexible and scalable for our enterprise-size customers,” says Anderson.
Anderson explains that Kaseya will also help to develop and enhance the company's offering, improve incident response times and will influence future product development.
