Company officials announced Nov. 5 that they are offering a three-tier partner model for private-label archiving and hosting.
Associate partners receive a commission for each successful referral of 20 percent for the first year of the program. Reseller-level partnersmidlevel companies and regional resellersare eligible for recurring revenues of 20 to 35 percent. And Strategic-level partnersthose who serve national and global marketsare eligible for recurring revenues of 35 to 50 percent.
LiveOffice is launching the program to hasten its expansion beyond the financial services market, said Matt Smith, president of the Torrence, Calif., company. That industry was one of the first to implement retention of electronic communications to comply with legal requirements. As requirements have grown for other companies of all sizes, LiveOffice hopes to capture part of that archiving market.
The service has a three-seat minimum, eliminates mailbox quotas by offering unlimited storage at no additional charge and provides tight integration with any mail server environment, the company said.
Founded in 1998, LiveOffice has 95 employees.
