Symplified® today announced the launch of the Symplified Partner Program. Rolling out next month, the new channel program will increase value for resellers and service providers partnering with Symplified as global demand increases for the company’s Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solutions.
To lead its global channel efforts, Symplified has appointed Stephen Casolari as senior director of Worldwide Channels. A 15-year veteran of international channel and alliance development, Casolari joins Symplified from LANDesk Software, where he developed a world-class channels organization and accelerated the user management technology leader’s adoption throughout the Americas. Under his direction, the program contributed a significant percentage of the company’s overall revenue on an annual basis.
“Symplified is poised for explosive growth in a market that presents an unprecedented opportunity for partners with the drive for mutual success and industry leadership,” said Brian J. Doheny, senior vice president, Worldwide Field Operations, Symplified. “Stephen Casolari has the experience and insights to lead our channel program, which is built on the cornerstone of collaboration.”
