Press Release: DataFort Provides Secure Backup for Globe Micro Customers

...Appointed On The Basis Of Competitive Pricing, Ease Of Use And Location...

DataFort, the leading UK provider of off-site data backup, today announced that Globe Micro, a leading UK IT solutions provider, has taken advantage of its Self Billing Dealership programme. Globe Micro has been able to re-brand DataFort’s data backup service and offer it to customers as part of their total IT solutions.

Globe Micro provides complete outsourced IT departments to nearly 100 sites in the UK. “Data backup is a critical service for our customer base, we were keen to move from our original software provider (Novastor based in the US), to a local, UK based-company that could offer second line support to our clients on UK time,” states Chief Executive of Globe Micro, Lucien Bartram.

CEO and Founder of DataFort, Gavin Smith, comments, “We offer re-sellers a commercially superior solution to in-house data backup. We achieve this by providing them with an enterprise quality service that, if done in-house, would cost far more to implement and decrease their margins significantly. By reselling the ‘brandable’ DataFort service suite, channel partners are able to forgo the considerable costs associated with backup like software licensing, hardware purchase and service management and focus capital on marketing and other areas with a definable R.O.I.”
