New GFI Software APAC GM sounds out new NZ channel partners

We are experiencing strong growth in demand for our portfolio of security and messaging products in New Zealand and there are opportunities for new partners..."

GFI Software has appointed David Dann general manager Asia Pacific, based in Adelaide, after previously being financial controller across the region for the company.

Dann now has overall responsibility for all aspects of GFI Software's regional operations, including sales, support, marketing, administration and finance.

GFI Software provides web and mail security, archiving, fax, networking and security software to businesses and government organisations.

Dann says GFI Software has an extensive channel network in New Zealand, which is serviced in cooperation with distributor Soft Solutions, with a solid core group of Gold Partners.

“We are experiencing strong growth in demand for our portfolio of security and messaging products in New Zealand and there are opportunities for new partners, particularly those with a vertical industry focus that complete training,” he says.

“We have been successful in building demand in vertical markets - for example with local government, insurance brokers and legal firms – by increasing awareness of how GFI Software's solutions can ease the task and reduce the cost of common IT challenges.

"We want to develop a bigger and stronger group of top tier partners who understand how the solutions in our portfolio can benefit their industry clients.

"If partners make a commitment to GFI Software and complete the appropriate training, then we can work with Soft Solutions to push business their way."

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
