Share Article

Giacom World Networks announced today that it has partnered with Nimble, the simple CRM for Microsoft Office 365, and the world’s leading security company Symantec to bring their cloud-based business solutions to its reseller-only channel. Newly launched in the Giacom Cloud Market, both Nimble CRM and Email & Web Security offer UK resellers the opportunity to purchase intelligent solutions at exclusively discounted rates.

Offering these first-class business solutions within the Giacom Cloud Market enables IT professionals access to easy to use software that aligns with our unique market propositions, generating additional revenue for their Office 365 services with us.

Symantec’s Email & Web Security and Nimble CRM are just two of several products due to be released within the Cloud Market during the first quarter of the year. They join great products such as Signature Hosted Exchange, Office 365, Acronis Backup Cloud, Bitdefender GravityZone and Hosted Voice to name but a few.

As one of the world’s largest malware research organisations, Symantec is a global leader in security and is backed by comprehensive and meaningful industry service level agreements. With one easy-to-use web-based management portal, Symantec’s Email & Web Security solution uses Skeptic Advanced Scanning technology to learn from what it sees and considers how malicious content could be applied in a harmful way, providing protection immediately.

With 568,000 web attacks per day and $5 billion (£3.7 billion) lost to financial email fraud over the last three years*, protecting critical business data against cyber threats is vital. Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network is built to protect SMEs from the world’s malicious cyber-attacks. Its Email Protect and Email Safeguard solutions help to prevent data leaks and helps to ensure compliance through granular DLP (Data Loss Prevention) and encryption controls, while Web Protect & Control features anti-virus and anti-spyware defences at internet level, coupled with web policy enforcements and a URL filtering engine.

Toby McDuffie, Senior Director of Global Channels at Symantec, said: “As the largest Office 365 distributor for small to medium-sized businesses and with over 130,000 Hosted Exchange mailboxes, Giacom has a proven track record as a first-class cloud distributor. Launching our email and web security solutions in the Giacom Cloud Market presented us with a unique opportunity for expansion into the UK reseller marketplace, enabling IT professionals to leverage world-leading security software so they can boost their bottom line and protect their end users from malicious cyber threats.”

With 130,000 users worldwide, Nimble CRM is one of the most popular social selling applications on the market. Designed for easy usability, its mobile-enabled design allows customers to leverage opportunities in a way no other CRM has been able to do before. It works inside the customer’s Office 365 or Outlook mailbox and automatically generates enriched contact and company records, enabling users to discover missing emails, phone numbers and address data, so there’s no need to enter data manually or toggle between applications. Nimble unifies company contact information from Microsoft Office 365, social media accounts and more than 100 SaaS-based sales, CRM, marketing, customer service and accounting applications into a single system of records, so teams can instantly collaborate to deliver targeted outbound sales and marketing campaigns.

As an award-winning company and a Microsoft Gold Partner, Nimble’s cloud-based CRM software is currently used by Office 365 and Outlook users across the globe. It was rated both number one for customer satisfaction and named as the best small business CRM software by G2 Crowd in 2017.

“We are excited about partnering with Giacom and their 4,000+ Giacom Cloud Market resellers to solve Office 365 users’ pressing business problems, including managing key relationships at scale,” said Kevin Turner, Nimble’s Head of Strategic Partner Development. “By providing sales, marketing and technical support services, in addition to industry-leading product commissions, we enable resellers to modernize their own social sales and marketing platforms, and help professionals and teams to do the same."

Jonathan Connor, Sales & Marketing Director at Giacom, said the following on both vendor partnerships: “We’re excited to partner with not one but two industry-leading vendors, Symantec and Nimble. Offering these first-class business solutions within the Giacom Cloud Market enables IT professionals access to easy to use software that aligns with our unique market propositions, generating additional revenue for their Office 365 services with us.”

As the number one Cloud Distributor for SMBs in the UK, Giacom are committed to bringing its 4,000+ resellers new and profitable cloud services from world-class vendors into the marketplace. Resellers can purchase Symantec’s Email & Web Security and Nimble CRM at an exclusive rate below the RRP in the Giacom Cloud Market.
