Cerberian Jump-Starts the Channel with Marketlink Relationship.
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 4, 2001
Cerberian Engages Marketlink Technologies to Extend
Cerberian Internet Manager's Services to a Nationwide VAR and
Cerberian Inc. Monday announced an agreement with Marketlink Technologies to outsource sales and marketing of Cerberian Internet Manager.
With a specific emphasis on the VAR channel, Marketlink will add Cerberian's service to its existing line assortment. Through Marketlink's established, trusted, and experienced sales team, Cerberian plans to greatly extend its reach and market penetration beyond the abilities typical of young technology companies.
"Marketlink is very excited to add Cerberian Internet Manager to its line," said Stan Schreyer, chief operating officer at Marketlink Technologies, LLC. "Cerberian's offerings are very synergistic with the other Internet, storage, security, and networking products we offer to the computer reseller and VAR communities. We see Cerberian as a missing piece of the puzzle to help round out our total offering.
"We expect that our relationships and experience will serve as a perfect avenue to extend Cerberian's market presence into areas left previously untouched."
"Like most young technology companies, our focus has been on creating the best possible solution for our customers," said Jeff Smith, chief executive officer of Cerberian Inc.
"Now that we have the best product, our partnership with Marketlink enables us to reduce time to market and leverage the relationships they have established with resellers rather than building the channel on our own.
"Marketlink will become our channel to the market, allowing us to move from our current push strategy into a fully mature and active pull strategy empowered by Marketlink's experienced, widespread, and trusted sales force."
Marketlink is a professional outsourced technology sales and marketing organization focused on the end-user and VAR channel. The company's 50 sales representatives -- based in strategic areas nationwide -- will immediately begin offering Cerberian Internet Manager to computer resellers, VARs, and end-user businesses throughout the country.
With an average selling experience of at least five years per sales representative in their respective regions, Marketlink representatives bring an unequalled level of experience and relationships that companies like Cerberian can leverage to jump-start channel activities.
