Gooogle announced that over 2,000 resellers are now supporting Google Apps. “Shortly after launching Google Apps for business customers in 2007, we began to hear that IT solution providers were recommending Apps to their customers as a new option for messaging and collaboration tools. At the time, we didn’t have formal support for solution providers, and their only incentive was to act in the best interests of their customers.
As a result, when we launched Google Apps Authorized Reseller program in early 2009, we focused the program on providing resellers the best of both worlds – an innovative web-based messaging and collaboration suite for their customers and a reseller program that allowed them to retain and enhance their customer relationships.
Over the past 8 months we’ve doubled the number of resellers in our Google Apps Authorized Reseller program, and now have over 2,000 authorized resellers worldwide. And our unique qualification process continues to ensure that new resellers understand both the business value and technical aspects of the offering,” stated Google.
