Web development outfit, GeekIT Group, has launched a new offering and complementary partner program aimed at fulfilling a client's online and business requirements.
The GeekIT Solution is comprised of a content management system, services and support. Managing director, Mary Henderson, said it worked with enterprise Web software developers to come up with a solution for design agencies with no in-house Web development skills. It is also offering the new toolkit to IT resellers wanting to expand their Web capabilities.
"The problem was a lot of design agencies were outsourcing to Web developers but not actually getting the same outcome as what they submitted in the illustrator files," she said. "We developed a product that could integrate a content management solution into every website but, most importantly, meet the desired design outcome.
"It enables users to manage all their content in one administration area rather than have to integrate other brands."
GeekIT's partner program offers the channel pre and post sales, technical and marketing support, as well as product training. It is broken up into three segments based on how many websites a partner brings in annually: 1-10, 11-20 or 20 or more. In the first tier, rebates start at 20 per cent. Partners also receive a 10 per cent discount on the license and the first year of hosting.
Henderson said its channel would also be offered access to its VIP lounge were it could upload information on Web trends and learn how to write a newsletter.
All registered partners receive a free GeekIT 2 licence and the opportunity to develop their website at a 50 per cent discount of development costs.
