Geeks2U, a provider of computer repairs and on-site technology support for homes and businesses, has started to sell backup and disaster recovery software directly to its customers in partnership with Acronis.
By selling Acronis products directly to its customers, Geeks2U says it is now able to offer its customers an easy, intuitive and comprehensive disaster recovery solution to effectively protect themselves against potential problems in future, in addition to the traditional support services they provide.
“Over the last twelve months, our technicians have noted increasing demands from customers for advice and recommendations on how to back up their computers and protect themselves against potential system failure and data loss,” commented David Hancock, Managing Director of Geeks2U.
“Our technicians have been using Acronis for a while and found that the Acronis solutions are powerful, reliable and extremely easy to use. When asked to recommend backup and recovery solutions by our customers, we made the decision to introduce Acronis products and make them available for our customers to purchase through our technicians.”
And according to Bill Taylor Mountford, General Manager of Acronis, “Unlike large enterprises with a dedicated IT team and a budget to match, SMBs and home users have to depend on reliable software to secure their data. Being the expert in the backup and recovery space, we understand the needs of SMBs and home users, and we provide products specifically designed for them at an affordable price. We hope that Geeks2U customers will benefit from the most advanced imaging technology from Acronis, while they enjoy the high standard services from Geeks2U.”
