PowerQuest Offers Additional Revenue Opportunities for OEM Partners

Inclusion of PowerQuest disaster recovery software in products enhances OEM’s ability to support customers, extend value, increase revenue

OREM, Utah – Oct. 29, 2003 – PowerQuest® Corporation, a global provider of deployment and recovery solutions, today introduced its ProfitBuilder program for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and system builders. The program provides PowerQuest system protection and disaster recovery technology to manufacturers to include in servers, workstations, laptops and storage products (such as NAS devices and hard drives) providing additional value to its customers and opening additional revenue and profit opportunities.

Under the ProfitBuilder program, PowerQuest licenses limited versions of PowerQuest V2i Protector™, its PC and server backup solution, to manufacturers. The limited version of V2i Protector is included with the manufacturer’s product, providing a method for rapid system backup. In addition, end users can easily upgrade to full versions of V2i Protector, and PowerQuest shares the upgrade revenue with the system builders and manufacturers.

Flexible Levels Meet Needs of Computer Manufacturers
The ProfitBuilder program offers different levels to meet the needs of varying sizes and types of manufacturers. The levels are:

  • ProfitBuilder Program enables manufacturers to include a limited-feature version of V2i Protector. Purchasers of the machines can upgrade to the full version of the product, and the manufacturer then receives a percentage of those sales. Manufacturers can also leverage the inclusion of V2i Protector with their product to enable fast, easy backup and system restoration to simplify support. Partners can earn additional percentage points on revenue by participating in marketing activities to promote V2i Protector.

  • ProfitBuilder Lite licenses a time limited demonstration version of V2i Protector. Again, the manufacturer receives a percentage of the revenue from its customers’ upgrades to the full version of V2i Protector.

Availability
The ProfitBuilder program is available immediately to OEMs and system builders around the world. The limited versions of V2i Protector are available in English, German, French and Japanese. Interested manufacturers should contact PowerQuest at http://www.powerquest.com/profitbuilder. Pricing is based on the applicable program and manufacturing volume.
