JH Turiel and Associates Named a Preferred Partner by Kerio Technologies

New England IT Consultancy Reaches Highest Kerio Partner Level With Its Service to SMBs

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - Kerio Technologies, Inc. today announced that JH Turiel and Associates, a leading provider of IT services to small businesses in Greater Boston, New Hampshire and Cape Cod, has attained Kerio Preferred Partner status. As a value-added reseller of Kerio's messaging, security and collaboration platforms for five years, the company has demonstrated continuous sales growth and advancement within Kerio's Business Partner Program.

JH Turiel & Associates enables small businesses to get the maximum return on their IT investments. From their offices in Beverly, Mass., the IT service provider offers consulting services, on-site and remote system administration, security advice and implementation, and a full array of training services that are customized to each client. As partners of Microsoft, Rackspace, Marketcircle, and Intego and a member of the Apple Consultants Network member (with Mac OS X certification), they have the expertise to help clients, regardless of platform.

"We operate on the principle that clients should choose the technology platform they are most comfortable with, and it's up to us to help them optimize that platform," said Josh Turiel, owner, JH Turiel and Associates. "Kerio's products are designed with the same philosophy -- the fact that Kerio Connect customers are not limited by operating system, email client, or smartphone makes them pretty much the obvious solution to recommend to small businesses."

Recently, JH Turiel and Associates upgraded Electric Supply Center, a distributor of electrical supplies and fixtures in Burlington, Mass, from Microsoft Exchange 2003 to Kerio Connect 7.2. ESC has always embraced technology to streamline processes in their two warehouses, including a state of the art online order entry system. It chose Kerio Connect as its mail server because of superior support for Mac operating systems and the built-in anti-virus capabilities. The migration from Exchange to Kerio Connect was seamless, and now ESC's 50 employees securely access their email, calendars and task from the email client, computer and smartphone of their choice. ESC has been able to eliminate their reliance on outsourced mail filtering as a result of this as well, further lowering their costs.

"We believe that our Partners' success translates into our success, and this mutually beneficial culture drives our partnership program," said Mirek Kren, vice president, worldwide sales, Kerio Technologies. "JH Turiel and Associates is a welcome addition, as they are dedicated to providing customized implementations of Kerio Connect to customers for a simple, stable and secure messaging solution."

The Kerio Partner Program is designed for IT resellers, consultants and MSPs that are dedicated to selling and supporting solutions targeted to SMBs. The program offers comprehensive benefits such as on-line and in-person training programs, complimentary NFR licenses, no-cost certifications, and priority technical support. In addition, Kerio's secure partner portal offers on-line orders, license and renewal management tools, an assortment of sales and marketing tools and other online resources. Kerio recently launched a new global partner locator with improved partner search capabilities that drives qualified leads to its Certified and Preferred partners. The company's communication, collaboration and security solutions are offered exclusively via channel partners.
