SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 12, 2002
Killer Broadband Application GoToMyPC(TM) Remote-Access Service
Offers Resellers a Compelling Program
Expertcity, Inc., the leading provider of Web-based remote-access and customer-support technologies, today announced the launch of the GoToMyPC(TM) Channel Partner Program. The new program offers resellers the leading Web-based telecommuting and remote-access solution for employees who need remote access to their office PCs.
Expertcity's GoToMyPC Channel Partner Program offers a three-tiered model for solution providers and resellers. Large resellers that handle their own pre- and post-sales support and back-end processes such as billing will receive a 15 to 20 percent commission for an annual contract. Resellers relying on Expertcity for back-end support will receive a 10 to 15 percent commission, and referral partners will receive a 10 percent commission when Expertcity closes the sale.
"We are rolling out an aggressive channel program that will offer our partners rich profits and the support they need to be successful with our products," states Shannon Jessup, director of channel programs, Expertcity, Inc. "After making targeted inroads with GoToMyPC into commercial, education and government accounts through select partnerships with Insight Business Services and other solution providers, the company is responding to the demand for a comprehensive program with all the support features and revenue opportunities needed to develop small and midsize customers," adds Jessup.
"There is a tremendous need in the (small and midsize enterprise) space for remote access, but it's a bit beyond their budget to go with something like a VPN or a Citrix solution," says Joel Borovay, president of Insight Services. "GoToMyPC gives them a less-expensive option for remote access and comes with the built-in security necessary to conduct business online."
The new GoToMyPC Channel Partner Program will provide exclusive partner promotions, MDF, co-branding, monthly reports, free technical support, sales training, and a dedicated extranet outlining a complete product sales and support program.

GoToMyPC was consistently awarded the highest rating in the remote access category from CNET; it was called revolutionary by PC Magazine; lauded as ingenious by The New York Times, and recognized as one of the best gizmos and gadgets of 2001 by Fortune magazine.
