LogMeIn Announces New Channel Program for Cloud App Services



LogMeIn Announces New Channel Program for Cloud App Services

Offers the Apps, Management Tools to Capitalize on Today's Cloud-Centric
Workplace

BOSTON, July 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn, Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) today
announced a new channel partner program to help managed service providers
(MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), and other outsourced IT service
providers capitalize on the growing shift to cloud-based apps and
employee-introduced technology. The new program, called LogMeIn Elevate, will
give channel partners new ways for managing users across devices that blur
work and personal lines, as well as across cloud-based apps and related data
that span this myriad of devices. The channel program will also open the doors
to resell LogMeIn's popular cloud collaboration apps, like join.me and Cubby,
giving MSPs, VARs and IT service providers new ways to establish and grow
client relationships. As a result, channel partners can better address the
management realities of today's cloud-centric workplace, build stronger
relationships with their clients, expand their portfolio, boost margins, and
create new revenue streams.       

The program, part of LogMeIn's focus on helping IT professionals redefine
their strategic role in today's cloud-centric work environment, is being
rolled out in two phases. The initial phase will help IT service providers
create new, high-margin remote management and support services around a
growing mix of employer-introduced and employee-introduced devices. A second
phase, expected to be rolled out later this year, will introduce a reseller
program for LogMeIn's popular collaboration and productivity app, as well as
3^rd party cloud app management capabilities through a channel-focused version
of LogMeIn's new IT offering, AppGuru.  

Leading the program will be Ted Roller, LogMeIn's vice president of channel
development, and a 20-plus-year channel veteran, having held leadership roles
both as an MSP and reseller, as well as channel leader at multiple software
vendors. 

"When talking to today's MSPs and IT service providers, almost all of them are
looking for ways to shift their future portfolio toward the needs of
cloud-centric businesses – and with that, change the focus of management from
networks and devices to users and apps. The goal of our channel program will
be simple: Give service providers the tools, education, marketing support they
need to accelerate this transition," said Ted Roller, LogMeIn's VP of channel
development. "With a proven track record amongst channel providers and the
right mix of products and expertise, we believe we're in a unique position to
help MSPs and VARs deliver tomorrow's highly profitable services, today."   

Program details:

MSPs, VARs and IT service providers that sign up for the program will receive:

  * VIP monthly pricing on LogMeIn's remote support solution, LogMeIn Rescue,
    giving them options to deliver higher margin services to support users and
    cloud app usage across personal or work PCs, Macs, smartphones and
    tablets 
  * Discounts on LogMeIn's collaboration apps, join.me and Cubby
  * Early access to AppGuru*, LogMeIn's cloud app management solution, giving
    them the ability to manage users and policies across cloud apps, no matter
    where they are accessed or used
  * Early entry into LogMeIn's app reseller program**, giving them new ways to
    help clients boost employee productivity while creating new revenue
    streams and expanding revenue per client
  * Marketing support to help create and sell new managed services
  * Access to LogMeIn's product and development organizations to influence
    future channel product offerings
  * Dedicated tech support to quickly resolve issues

The channel program will initially be rolled out to North American service
providers, with international expansion expected later in the year.
