Humyo has kicked off its drive for growth by initiating a partner programme that aims to recruit 500 value-added resellers across the UK.
Founded in 2007, humyo.com is an independent online storage provider that specialises in providing solutions for small businesses. It offers its users cloud storage, which is accessible through a PC or mobile device, and includes 256- bit encryption, while its servers are stored in a former Bank of England bullion vault.
The company is now looking to grow its presence in the online storage market, which is forecast to be worth £357 million globally in the next two years, and it is due to this potential that the partner programme has been launched.
The scheme offers its partners commission for new and renewed customers, who will initially receive technical support and billing directly from humyo.com. The firm is also looking to expand the programme to allow partners to manage their own customer accounts and offer a white label programme.
"We're aiming to increase awareness of the humyo brand and work with the SMB sector, so naturally we're looking at engaging with the VAR channel," said Humyo's managing director, Dan Conlon. "And as with any brand, the key is to build up trust with our resellers and consumers and to support them."
