hmm well I have never dealt with reselling of any products actually. I understand the concept of course, but to just include it in whatever package you present to a potential customer has to be another pro vs con on the list of services.
Outside of my normal job at GE, I just do consulting work and various IT projects for a few places nights and weekends. One site I installed an ftp server and automatic backups and images for all their desktops. For 80 bucks extra per yr, every
PC in the building could have a redundant backup or even replace the ftp server all together. Less upfront overhead and troubleshooting when a client claims there backup isn't working. I'm obviously just thinking out loud here
, but I think for 80 bucks it's worth it to take a look at it. Keep the ftp server in place for a while. Hey, someone still has to install and set it all up for them
I have read here in the forum about others using a reseller program for their backups. I guess those are customized and branded in some way. It's just good to see hdd prices coming down so much as to allow such an affordable service.
Maybe one day soon when I retire I can look more into a remote support type of business and services like these will surely be on my list.
