Appointed On The Basis Of Competitive Pricing, Ease Of Use And Location

Release date: October 2005

DataFort, the leading UK provider of off-site data backup, today announced that Globe Micro, a leading UK IT solutions provider, has taken advantage of its SELF-BILLING Dealership programme. Globe Micro has been able to re-brand DataFort’s data backup service and offer it to customers as part of their total IT solutions.

Globe Micro provides complete outsourced IT departments to nearly 100 sites in the UK. “Data backup is a critical service for our customer base, we were keen to move from our original service provider (Novastor based in the US), to a local, UK based-company that could offer second line support to our clients on UK time,” states Chief Executive of Globe Micro, Lucien Bartram.

CEO and Founder of DataFort, Gavin Smith, comments, “We offer re-sellers commercially superior solution to in-house data backup. We achieve this by providing re-sellers with an enterprise quality service that would cost far more to implement and decrease their margins significantly. By reselling the ‘brandable’ DataFort service suite, channel partners are able to forgo the considerable costs associated with backup like software licensing, hardware purchase and service management and focus capital on marketing and other areas with a definable R.O.I.”

Bartram adds, “After looking at the data backup service providers in the UK we decided on DataFort for its competitive pricing, ease of use and proximity to our offices. It was important to us that we chose a provider that we could build strong relationships with, and one that has been established in the UK market for some years.”

Globe Micro has already migrated eight of its major clients over to the DataFort service and are proactively advising new and existing clients of the benefits of data backup provided by DataFort.
