Automation software provider, Kaseya, has picked up US-based software vendor, Versora, best known for its desktop migration software.
"This is all about expanding the functionality of our product," Kaseya country manager, Tim Dickinson, said. "Once a Managed Service Provider [MSP] has its pricing in place, the next step is to find ways to drive the efficiency of delivery."
The Versora software has been widely used in the enterprise market and is capable of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux migration. Dickinson said the software could start appearing in the Kaseya offering soon, but wouldn't speculate on how it would position the product with resellers.
"I'm not sure yet whether it will be an additional module or integrated into the core license, but one way or the other, resellers will be able to get their hands on it in as little as three months," he said. In other Kaseya news, the vendor has announced technical training for resellers looking to establish an MSP practice. Current dates are October 9 - 11 in Melbourne.
The training joins both its Quick Start consultative coaching program and its Introduction to Managed Services seminar series as additional channel initiatives being rolled out in the second half of the year for systems integrators looking to become MSPs.
