While Yappn has a hybrid go-to market strategy, they are looking to the channel to lead the way, and are particularly interested in attracting top eCommerce-focused partners.
Seclore, which is India-based, has been making a large push in the North American market, and while they have been selling direct here, are just beginning to build out a channel. The OEM deal with Citrix is their largest to date, and will add significantly to their exposure, while filling what had been a security gap in ShareFile.
Mo Nezarati, the founder and CEO of Richmond Hill ON-based Esna, which Avaya acquired last year, has been named the GM of Zang, which was created as a separate company because its business model is radically different from Avaya’s. There will be channel opportunities though, and Zang is developing a channel program.
