Kerio Technologies to Host 2nd Annual Kerio Partner Forum During Cebit Australia

The Sydney Event Will Feature Practical Discussions With New and Existing Kerio Partners About How to Implement Kerio's New Products

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - Kerio Technologies, Inc. will hold its second annual Australian Kerio Partner Forum in Sydney on Wednesday, June 1st, 2011. The event is intended for Kerio's more than 300 channel partners in the country and will discuss new revenue opportunities for IT providers, provide training about how to sell Kerio's new voice and collaboration products and showcase real world examples of successful customer implementations.

The Kerio Partner Forum, which is being held at PARK ROYAL Darling Harbour, is open to existing, new and prospective VARs and MSPs. Building on the success of last year's inaugural event, this year will include several interactive presentations including:

  • Scott Schreiman, CEO, Kerio Technologies discussing the vision and motivation behind the two products Kerio introduced earlier this year, Kerio Workspace and Kerio Operator.
  • Mark Williams, CEO, Crunch IT discussing how the new Kerio product portfolio opened up new opportunities so he can successfully position his business as a complete small business solutions provider.
  • John Jones, Kerio Sales Engineer, Australia demonstrating how to deploy Kerio Workspace and Kerio Operator in real-world scenarios.
  • Sam Venning, IT Manager, Australian Business Theater presenting his case study about why he selected Kerio Workspace over competitive products.

"When it comes to being an IT provider, sometimes we all need a little inspiration to step out of our comfort zone and consider new technology solutions," said Scott Schreiman, Kerio CEO. "The Kerio Partner Forum is designed to provide that inspiration so our partners continue to build on the tremendous momentum they have established with Kerio offerings over the last several years."

It's been two years since Kerio began providing local pre-sale, sales, marketing and technical support to Australian partners. During that time, the company has seen its revenue and number of partners grow significantly, and its award-winning products for SMBs increasingly become more established in the market. Kerio recently opened its eighth worldwide office in Sydney, a move that represents a long-term commitment to the region.

"Kerio Workspace has really given us a competitive advantage by providing an easy-to-use collaboration tool that makes our organization more productive," said Sam Venning, IT manager, Australian Business Theater. "It provides great comfort knowing that Kerio has a strong local presence in Sydney, and I look forward to sharing our story at the partner forum."
