I’m confident that our joint efforts to promote IceWarp products will certainly be successful and will contribute to the growth of the vendor’s Russian market share
Springfield, Virginia (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
IceWarp, the global messaging and collaborations solutions provider, announced today that it has completed the first stage of sales force training and education for Axoft– its exclusive partner in Russia. In a series of events in Moscow and St.Petersburg, IceWarp’s top executives introduced company’s advanced messaging and collaboration solutions that have become the most viable alternative to the mainstream e-mail platforms.
Axoft, a leading distributor of wide range of software on Russian and CIS countries’ markets, became IceWarp’s exclusive partner in Russia earlier this year. While IceWarp already had presence in the Russian markets (its customers include such well-known companies as AVTOTOR and government organizations such as Russian Space Agency), the alliance is poised to significantly increase its market share in the region.
“We were absolutely thrilled by the level of excitement with products,” says Ladislav Goc, IceWarp President. “There is obviously a huge market niche and demand that other messaging providers cannot meet, at least now. We already see significant sales growth and are confident that IceWarp solutions would be extremely profitable for Axoft partners. For a simple reason: they are a perfect match for the messaging needs of organizations who are tired of having no alternative.”
Axoft considers IceWarp solutions as a profitable addition to the company’s impressive product portfolio that would allow it to fill important market niches, especially in the SMB and education segments.
“IceWarp offers solutions, highly popular in the United States market, are a good alternative to expensive corporate systems,” says Vyacheslav Barhatov, Head of Sales Department of Axoft. “Currently, the vendor sees growth perspectives in the Russian market. Axoft, IceWarp’s exclusive distributor in Russia, is actively promoting the vendor through its partner network. To this end, we arrange educational seminars and webinars for our partners and organize conferences.”
“Within the framework of these events, we pay special attention to explaining the IceWarp advantages and upgrading the technology skills of our partners,” continues Mr. Barhatov. “It is encouraging that IceWarp is enthusiastically supporting all our activities. For example, IceWarp President Ladislav Goc participated in the Axoft regional conference held in St. Petersburg, Russia this autumn. I’m confident that our joint efforts to promote IceWarp products will certainly be successful and will contribute to the growth of the vendor’s Russian market share.”
