Software vendor, Kaseya, has launched a local user group program in an effort to improve communication and thinking amongst partners.
The user groups will be formed at Think Tank 09, where 75 managed service providers across Australia will meet and discuss market trends and product roadmaps.
The 75 attendee slots, which were deliberately kept low by Kaseya, was sold out in two hours. Kaseya regional director, Tim Dickinson, said the limit was imposed to keep the information presented to partners focused.
“We’re finding that partners are a sharing community, and we see great opportunity for programs of this kind as our partner base continues to grow,” Dickinson said.
Kaseya now has 500 partners across Australia and New Zealand, with the local user group program being developed in response to partner demand.
“Common feedback for us is that partners want to spend more time with us and improve communication,” Dickinson said. “This initiative forms a key part of our efforts to assist existing partners to grow the business and make sure partners get the most out of the platform.”
Depending on the success of the program, Kaseya will run further Think Tank events.
“I’d like to see another event within the next six months,” senior account manager, Daniel Small, said.
“We’ll also be working with local partners to help them organise similar events for their geographies.”
