We’ve been hearing loud and clear that our partners want more opportunities when it comes to delivering services to their customers. And over the past few months, we’ve made a significant investment in helping our partners increase the opportunities they have to combine their services with Symantec’s solutions.
Today we announced our ExSP licensing program, which offers Symantec partners the choice of buying Symantec software in a monthly subscription-based model, providing greater flexibility in how they deliver solutions to their customers.
The program has been around since 2006, but was previously aimed at our largest partners. Now this proven model has been streamlined and simplified to enable traditional Symantec partners of all sizes to more easily develop their own managed services offerings.
We truly value all of our partners and are working to always provide them with ways to expand their growth and increase profitability. The enhanced ExSP Buying Program will do just that.
With this subscription-based program, our partners can license our products in the way they sell them to customers. The program is designed to help partners reduce their upfront costs and accelerate profitability. We hope it will enable our partners to take advantage of the managed services opportunity.
Symantec’s ExSP buying program is open to partners enrolled in Symantec’s Partner Program who are qualified service providers, offering customers a combination of Symantec products with their own services. If you’re interested, you can find more information here.
