Syncsort Inc., a maker of data protection and recovery software, said it has initiated a new channel partner program to lift sales of its Backup Express (BEX) line and associated services.

Through its Partner Edge Reseller program, the Woodcliff Lake, NJ developer intends to expand its sales strategy by providing resources and tools to channel partners selling its portfolio of data processing, integration, protection and recovery software.

The channel initiative, which the vendor said will help resellers to increase profit margins, protect sales opportunities and create recurring revenue, will be implemented on a global basis and customized locally.
