Multiven Launches Its Channel Partner Program Targeted at Network Hardware Resellers and VARs

Palo Alto, CA, November 03, 2007 --( Multiven, – the global leader in premium multivendor IP network maintenance services – today announced the launch of its Channel Partner Program aimed at network hardware resellers and VARs. The Channel Partner Program is designed to enable end-customers worldwide to easily purchase and benefit from Multiven’s superior multivendor IP network maintenance services cost-effectively through a global network of certified channel partners.

Multiven Channel Partner Program is specifically focused on companies that sell new and pre-owned networking hardware. The program includes the resale of Multiven’s Network Maintenance Services (NMS), which simplifies the way networks are supported and maintained.

"Our channel partner program is designed to help network hardware resellers and VARs boost revenue, increase margins, extend brand equity and credibility while building long-term customer loyalty through the sale of Multiven NMS to their end-customers globally" said Peter Alfred-Adekeye, CEO of Multiven. "Multiven NMS offers network hardware resellers an unprecedented opportunity to provide their end-customers with lifetime premium maintenance support on all network assets including OEM end-of-Life and end-of-support equipment. Every reseller of networking hardware looking to improve customer retention and relationship while growing revenue and profitability should explore Multiven NMS today".

Multiven Channel Partner Program allows network hardware resellers worldwide to realize previously untapped long-term services revenue from their hardware sales with a potential to grow revenue and profitability by over 20% per annum. The Multiven brand provides partners the opportunity to start creating comprehensive solutions for their end-customers rather than lose them to OEM competition due to the lack of a service offering. With Multiven NMS, channel partners can stay focused on meeting the needs of their customers.

"The key driver for Multiven is simple – to make all networks work irrespective of the age or manufacturer of the underlying hardware and software. By implementing an innovative vendor-neutral approach and empowering our eco-system using cutting edge-tools and resources, we’ve created a win-win dynamic for us, our partners and our customers worldwide" stated Mr. Alfred-Adekeye.
