Sydney, Australia - 11 March, 2014 - Paessler AG, the innovative network monitoring solutions specialist is celebrating impressive growth in Australia and New Zealand with a 50% increase in sales for 2013. The company's preliminary financial results from last year position the region as the company's seventh largest sales market. Globally, Paessler reported a 39% growth in sales, boosted by more than two dozen new local partnerships.
Continuing to meet the rising demand for network monitoring and testing solutions, the network monitoring specialist increased its global workforce by 25% in 2013 adding among others, a new technical presales team member to strengthen marketing support for partners as well as several new channel sales managers, including Andrew Timms, who serves as Channel Manager for Australia and New Zealand. Timms brings more than 18 years' experience across IT, sales and channel distribution and management in global computing software companies.
Timms attributes Paessler's growth to the increased demand from IT departments seeking to better understand their IT estates whilst looking for ways to maximise existing networks and make smarter investments.
"IT teams around the globe are striving to do more with less," says Timms. "By listening carefully to our customers' requirements and constantly adding appropriate features to PRTG Network Monitor, we are well positioned to continue supporting our new and existing customers, enabling them to pinpoint issues and offering the tools they need to improve performance."
Paessler is further demonstrating its investment in Australia and New Zealand, taking part in this year's Cisco Live event in Melbourne, 18-21 March. The monitoring experts will demonstrate PRTG's latest developments including solutions for the Cisco product range, new mobile apps and SNMP Trap and Syslog Receiver sensors.
"Our focus on the training and development needs of our channel partners has allowed reseller sales to nearly double across ANZ this past year," says Timms. "Being involved in events such as Cisco Live will help us continue the momentum from 2013 and increase our visibility as the premier network monitoring solutions vendor."
