Annual Partner Program Roundup & Enhancements

Partner Program

Can you believe it’s been a year since the Datto Global Partner Program launched? It truly feels like the time has passed in the blink of an eye, but when reflecting on how much we’ve accomplished together, it’s been an incredible journey and we’d like to congratulate and thank you for that.

Since last year, we’ve received fantastic feedback from you (our partners) and some great ideas for enhancements to introduce. We were even honored to have received 15 industry awards from leading publications and associations, the majority of which were voted on by our partners and other MSPs.

2018 Enhancements

  • Select Vendor Program: Our top priority is to invest, enable, and support our partners. We’ve worked hard to identify a select group of channel vendors who share our focus to provide services specifically to assist the growth of MSP businesses. The Datto Select Vendor Program provides a resource center of these nine complementary vendors who we now have a formal relationship with. The best part? We’ve already negotiated discounted pricing exclusively for Datto partners.

  • Referral Program: Our loyal partners are our best advocates. We appreciate you sharing the Datto love so much that we’ve launched an official Referral Program where it really pays to have friends, $1,000 to be exact. For every successful referral you send our way, we’ll thank you with cash and a virtual hug.

  • Free Rush Build: Time is money, especially in a disaster scenario. Blue partners will now receive four free rush builds per year, where your device is built and shipped same day (valued at $1,000). Redeem with your Channel Account Manager.

We’ve designed the Datto Global Partner Program to support our partners’ ongoing business growth and success through a variety of enablement programs, benefits, and incentives. Our goal is to continuously add to and improve the Global Partner Program, where we have the honor of working with you in so many different ways.

If you have any questions about how to take advantage of these new or existing benefits, please contact your Channel Account Manager.
