Email continuity vendor Mimosa Systems has launched a bullish recruitment drive to boost its UK partners from three to 15 by the end of the year.

The firm’s NearPoint for Microsoft Exchange Server is a management software solution for Microsoft Exchange, unifying email archiving, recovery and storage management.
“Partners that specialise in verticals are also of interest, as they know the sector well. Microsoft Gold partners are preferred, but it is not essential,” added Bennett.
Mimosa’s UK channel base is limited to Satisnet, Essentialnet and Novosco. Novosco has generated $250,000 (£127,000) in business since it was recruited last month.
Mimosa has recruited Jo Hemming as UK channel partner manager to take on the ambitious task. Prior to Mimosa, Hemming held positions at Zantaz, Computer Associates and Oracle.
Hemming, who reports to Bennett, will be responsible for establishing the Mimosa channel infrastructure that delivers the tools, platforms and support needed to drive revenues of Mimosa’s NearPoint solution.
