IT solutions company, Landesk, has appointed SoftwareONE as its latest Australian-based reseller.
According to a company statement, the appointment forms a key element of the asset management vendor’s Australian channel strategy to build upon its existing base of technically sound resellers to support the strong sales growth of its range of solutions.
SoftwareONE was selected on the basis of its consultative asset management focus, technical expertise and range of licensing support services.
Landesk's sales strategy is one hundred per cent focused on the channel.
SoftwareONE will resell LANDESK Management systems lifecycle management and IT service management solutions for desktops, servers and mobile devices across the enterprise.
Landesk pre-Sales Manager, Asia Pacific/Japan, Andrew Souter, said the company had seen a "massive" increase in the company's inventory management solutions, as businesses realised that traditional help desk solutions were inadequate for compliance and risk mitigation.
“We’re looking forward to working with SoftwareONE with its strong heritage of success, technical expertise and business acumen to service this fast-growing market opportunity.”
LANDESK will support SoftwareONE’s Software Asset Management (SAM) program which aims to eliminate the guesswork normally associated with the software licensing process.
SoftwareOne managing director, Jacob Hayes, in Australia, said the company was more than just a licensing reseller.
"[We're] also a strategic partner to our customers who now with the addition of Landesk have greater choice and core SAM integration with hardware asset management and help desk functionality," he said.
“At the same time, Landesk's integration and automation features enable users to reap the benefits of license compliance as well as the potential for a reduction in software spend and the overheads often associated with internal management of compliance.
"In some instances, this can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in a licensing shortfall."
