Layered Tech Sponsors Southwest’s First Multi-platform Web Conference

August 24, 2010

Layered Tech is proud to be a sponsor of OpenCamp, the Southwest’s first multi-platform Web conference.  Created by the same people who started WordCamp Dallas and DrupalCamp Dallas, OpenCamp takes place Friday, Aug. 27 through Sunday, Aug. 29 at the Addison Crown Plaza Hotel, located at 14315 Midway Road, Addison, TX 75001.

So, you may think that we’re blogging about a blogging event…that’s only partially true!  OpenCamp is much more than a blogging event – it’s dedicated to the concept of removing both real and artificial barriers to bring together Webmasters, Web developers, bloggers, podcasters and social media enthusiasts, regardless of the tools they use, the medium in which they provide content, or the topics upon which they focus.  There’s never been an event like this, so you won’t want to miss it.

We’d love to see you there and have you experience the many sessions that OpenCamp has arranged.  Some of the industry’s top experts will present on topics ranging from social media to technical development, content creation, revenue generation and more.  WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, and .NET sessions will also be available, and there will be tracks that will appeal to all attendees.

Layered Tech will have a booth onsite, so be sure to stop by and learn about our latest and greatest news and offerings.  If you are attending, be sure to check your attendee bag for a special offer from Layered Tech!

OpenCamp is going to be BIG…they are expecting well over 600 attendees.  And to kick things off right in a Texas-sized fashion, be sure to attend Friday night’s huge opening event.  At 7:30 p.m., the U.S. Army Golden Knights will do an amazing exhibition jump.  You won’t want to miss this – a squadron of our country’s finest will parachute in formation, complete with smoke and pyrotechnics.  Like we said, this is much, much more than a blogging event!

We Launch New Partner Program and Give Channel Members Tools to Deliver Enterprise-Class Cloud Computing

March 22, 2010

Viva Las Vegas!  We recently returned from a successful trip to the Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2010 in Las Vegas, where we launched our new partner program.  It’s designed to give our partners all of the resources they need to deliver advanced dedicated hosting, virtualization and cloud computing infrastructures to enterprise customers.  Our program is based on solution sets and added services so partners can engage more customers and shorten the sales cycle.

Being a Channel Partners exhibitor was great.  We talked with hundreds of prospective partners about infrastructure solutions and their customers’ growing interest in cloud computing.  Partners use our support to expand their offerings with cloud computing services, so rather than having a partner program just based on reseller discounts, we dove deeper and built a revitalized program that gives partners the tools they need to present Layered Tech services, explain their benefits and sell them in a way that shortens the partner’s time to revenue.  We want strong and ambitious partners who, like Layered Tech, sell upstream to enterprises.  Most of all, we want to help our partner community deliver value-creating cloud computing services to their customers because we believe that doing so will strengthen their customer  relationships.

Our program gives each partner dedicated account managers, sales engineers and project managers to answer questions and provide customized support.  When partners log into our new feature-rich Partner Portal (available soon), it automatically applies the proper pricing, discounts and special offers based on their silver, gold or platinum status.

Our Partner Portal will also feature:

  • Automated online ordering to streamline selling
  • Joint marketing materials so partners can reach more customers and explain the new offerings
  • Training resources such as webinars to engage more customers
  • Deal registration so partners can easily register special deals to increase sales

We are committed to building our partner program and working with you to provide the support you need to succeed in expanding your offerings.  If you’re interested in delivering our solutions as value-added services within your own core business, we’d love to partner with you!
