Runecast combined forces with another strong European business IT solutions partner, Prianto.
The partnership began in late 2019, just after the Dutch press announced that Runecast would be the recipient of a Horizon 2020 grant for Runecast Analyzer, its automated predictive analytics and remediation platform for mitigating issues, helping to ensure security compliance, and alleviating any potential downtime in VMware-based data centers.
Ched Smokovic, Runecast VP of Sales & Marketing stated:
"Runecast is ahead of the curve, so it's a crucial time for us to partner with reputable solutions providers to maintain our foothold and put any potential competition further behind us. We are confident that our partners will also greatly benefit by adding Runecast Analyzer to their solutions offerings."
The partnership provides Runecast a local presence in more European regions, a move to both grow Runecast market share and provide Prianto with an unparalleled solution for its customers.
Some organizations already using Runecast Analyzer to mitigate service risks and ensure maximum data-center efficiency and performance at the time included: Chevron, Erste Bank, Raiffeisen Bank, de Volksbank, Fujisoft, Scania, and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
William Geens, Prianto Managing Director said:
"We are happy to offer the sophisticated Runecast solution now in our worldwide portfolio. The unique analysis approach not only saves time, but also ensures security and compliance. As a Value Added Distributor, we are exactly the right partner to take advantage of the growth opportunities in the market."
Mr. Smokovic added:
"In terms of what we offer VMware admins, we mostly compete for IT budget, not on features or benefits. This is why it's so important for us to invest in relationships that grow our brand awareness, as Runecast Analyzer provides immediate ROI, which in turn enables additional investments."
Founded in 2009, Prianto is a pure play software distributor that has grown into a group of companies covering Europe and North America. The company’s goal is to establish long-term, successful business relationships while relying on absolute channel loyalty, selling only to IT resellers to offer high-margin and innovative software solutions as a trusted partner for resellers, systems integrators and Managed Service Providers.
