NetManage Launches New Channel Sales and Marketing Directions to Provide Global Information Access and Integration for the Professional User NetManage To Deliver Products that Make Information on the Internet Useable Today.
The availability of NetManage's products through the channel is part of the company's aggressive effort to provide end-users with manageable and integrated working environments and successful support programs.

Additionally, NetManage is providing channel programs and products that provide business professionals the ability to be productive no matter where they are in the global computing environment.
"With the growth of the company and the phenomenon of the Internet as a business tool, business professionals are requiring that our products be available through the channel," said Zvi Alon, President and CEO of NetManage.
NetManage is rolling out an innovative channel program that encompasses sales and technical training, support and marketing for building successful channel partnerships. The programs include a two tier Market Development Fund (MDF) program which allows both resellers and distributors the ability to accrue MDF to help grow their opportunities for making users productive on the Internet. NetManage is kicking off the launch into the channel with the release of Internet Chameleon 4.5 and ECCO Professional 3.0. These products were designed with the channel in mind by recreating the box, applying new pricing, and development of sales tools and multiple programs to generate end-user pull.
According to Michele Shannon, Director of NetManage Channel Sales and Marketing, "Our innovative programs keep up with our corporate philosophy of providing user driven products by providing channel driven programs. The partners have been very instrumental in building this program with NetManage so we are both successful--thus Net Success."
"Net Success" is the first of NetManage channel programs that provide resellers opportunity to win prizes by getting trained and surfing the Internet themselves. NetManage will be training the top 350 reseller locations and providing reseller kits through Ingram Micro that enable them to become proficient. In addition, NetManage will be providing resellers with a demo that guides the end - users through the integration of the two products and how they can apply the products and the use of the Internet to their own profession.
Nationwide channel partners that have signed up with NetManage to distribute Internet Chameleon and ECCO include Ingram Micro and Merisel effective immediately.
