Zyxel has launched an updated version of its MSP Partner Programme with the goal of encouraging more partners to make their first steps to becoming managed services providers and building their business around its Nebula cloud management platform.
The company will be running a series of special briefing webinars for partners that are interested in becoming accredited as Zyxel MSP Partners and providing a full on-boarding and training programme. This will enable them to use the Nebula platform to provide monitoring and management of network devices for multiple customers.
Zyxel launched its first MSP Partner Programme in the UK and Ireland in 2020, recruiting and training a number of its partners in its cloud-based Nebula network monitoring and management platform. Over the following two years, sales through those partners have grown significantly. The company is now planning to build on that success, said Rachel Rothwell, Regional Director, UK and Ireland, at Zyxel.
“It’s very clear that managed services are the future for the channel. Over the past two years we have seen tremendous growth with our MSP Partners. That’s all been down to mutual commitment and the ease of use and growing popularity of Nebula, which has become the core managed services platform for those partners. We’ve seen success in all sectors and we will continue to support those partners and help them to grow.
“We are also ready to help more partners start making the transition to becoming an MSP, with Nebula as their foundation stone. To that end, we have enhanced our programme to make it even more attractive. We are running a series of webinars to explain the benefits and setting out a comprehensive training programme for the year ahead that will enable partners to come on board and learn and develop at their own pace.”
Rothwell stressed that Zyxel will be looking for partners who are enthusiastic and have real potential to grow. “We plan to bring only a limited number of new partners on board. We want partners that have a real zest and zeal to develop their managed services and grow their business. We believe that we have a really good programme that will help them to do that successfully.
“We’ve proven that it works and with the updates and enhancements we’ve made, we believe it is now even more suited to partners that really want to build a healthy, profitable managed services business for the long-term.”
Key enhancements to the programme are designed to give partners additional capability and confidence required to start developing their own monitoring and managed services practice.
