“...I really enjoyed the [Lifeboat 2012 Partner Business Development Summit] event in Atlantic City. It was better than last year from our perspective because there were more VARs...who were looking for ways to differentiate themselves to their customers/prospects. It is always great to meet your team and execs; we enjoy working with you.”
—Tom Ahern, North America Channel Sales Manager

“I wanted to make sure to compliment Stephanie for her AMAZING coverage yesterday [following Hurricane Irene]! She handled the non-stop requests from Acronis and the realization of lost POs extremely well. She was able to quickly identify the issues, stayed cool and polite with everyone she worked with, and was able to account for each of the expected orders. Thank you so much Lifeboat for your month-end professionalism during the post-hurricane chaos.”
—Reca Mikaili, CDW Channel Manager

Your experience on deals outside of the US was a imperative asset toward execution. This deal would not have been completed without you and your team's help.

—Eric Haslinger, Regional Sales Manager, Smart Systems Management
“I want to make you aware of the great help that Nicole and Erin have provided to Datawatch in their business development within [a key corporate reseller]. They have a strong relationship with [the reseller] and have made contacts within multiple departments, which I believe was instrumental in helping us get the stocking order completed. We have had limited access within [the reseller] but your team has been great in providing Datawatch with additional mindshare and even face time with the folks at the reseller. Again, a great job by Nicole and Erin.”
—Peter Concannon, Channel Manager
“For Flexera Software, one of the key components that drove our decision to maintain a single point of distribution for North America with Lifeboat was the access and dedication of the Lifeboat team. Other distributors within North America gave us limited access to sales staff for training and to executive teams for business reviews without paying fairly large marketing sums. The constant engagement Lifeboat allows us with all areas of their business helps us have transparency into our channel market.”
—El Lages, Director of North American Sales
“Lifeboat is easy to do business with, and the value they add continues to grow as our partner network grows.
