Resello, an Acronis Distributor supporting over 2.500 active resellers in over 100 countries worldwide, has launched a new go-to-market proposition aimed at WHMCS users. WHMCS is the automation platform used by over 40,000 web hosting companies worldwide. The new proposition aimed specifically at WHMCS users offers them a lower than usual, highly competitive minimum monthly usage fee, an updated WHMCS module that adds the newly released Acronis Cyber Protect, all combined with personal account management to quickly scale the partners’ backup and cyber protection business up from scratch to a profitable recurring revenue base.
Martijn Kamphuis, Product Manager at Resello: “Organizations using WHMCS are used to selling subscription model services in a recurring revenue model. Managing services and supporting their SMB customers is in their DNA. These companies are also seeing a rise in demand for services beyond just web hosting. But while the market demand for data protection and other cyber protection solutions is definitely growing, that part of the market was previously harder for WHMCS user to service. By launching this new proposition specifically for WHMCS users Resello and Acronis are able to offer them a full suite of data protection and cyber protection services they can sell, all automated via the Acronis Cyber Cloud module for WHMCS.”
Mathijs Theunissen, Strategic Partner Manager for Benelux and Nordics at Acronis: “Acronis recently launched Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, an AI-powered integration of data protection and cyber protection. As one of our valued distribution partners, Resello has already made Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud available to all its partners, and by launching this new proposition, we are happy to say WHMCS users can also start benefiting from new opportunities for recurring revenue by offering cyber protection to their customers.”
With Acronis Cyber Protect, MSPs can proactively avoid cyberattacks, minimize downtime, ensure fast and easy recoveries, and automate the configuration of client protection to counter the latest cyberthreats. This not only results in improved margins and profitability, but also adds easier SLA compliance and greater performance. The WHMCS module for selling Acronis has also been updated and now support the full Acronis Cyber Cloud suite, including the new Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.
Martijn Kamphuis: “By lowering the minimum monthly usage fee requirements Acronis provides WHMCS users an easy way to start offering new data protection and cyber protection solutions, including Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud, to their portfolio. The release of an updated version of the WHMCS module for Acronis adds Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to that offering. And as distributor we work closely with both our partners and Acronis to help our partners grow their cyber protection business.”
