Quest quiet on plans for market

Although it entered the market nearly a month ago with the acquisition of Wellington-based software innovator AfterMail, Quest Software has yet to detail its plans for the local channel.

The US-based vendor has already changed AfterMail’s name to Quest New Zealand and has said it will retain the AfterMail product development team in Wellington.

And, although it has announced that the local company will now sell its application, database and infrastructure management offerings, it has not said how these will be made available through the channel here.

While unable to detail Quest’s local channel plans as he is no longer involved in the operation here, former AfterMail CEO Rod Drury says Quest is very keen to grow and is looking to further develop its channel. “One of the things that Quest liked about us was that in some territories we were making the channel work,” says Drury, who is now acting as a sales evangelist for the company and is involved in training in North America and Europe.

Drury confirms that the AfterMail brand will disappear with its enterprise email archiving technology being absorbed into Quest’s Archive Manager application.

Quest bought AfterMail for US$45 million, saying the acquisition expands the email platforms supported by Archive Manager.
