eFolder Named a Coolest Cloud Vendor by CRN

eFolder, a leading supplier of cloud data protection and file sync solutions for the IT channel, today announced that it has been named one of the top 100 Coolest Cloud Vendors of 2014 by CRN. The annual list recognizes the most innovative cloud vendors and solutions tailored to address the channel industry’s unique needs. eFolder is recognized for its acquisition of cloud file sync technology provider Anchor and the integration of its petabyte-scale storage cloud with leading technology vendors.

Each year, CRN honors the 100 Coolest Cloud Vendors in an effort to help solution providers navigate the growing cloud marketplace and identify the best solutions to support the IT channel. Winners are named across five major cloud categories including platforms and tools, infrastructure, storage, security and software, based on data and information gathered from both solution provider nominations and the CRN editorial team. eFolder was also included in the 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors of the 2014 Cloud 100.

“The adoption of cloud computing solutions is showing no signs of slowing down as solution providers look to provide their clients with the scalability, flexibility and cost benefits necessary to compete in today’s business environment,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Each vendor on this list was carefully selected based on its ability to help organizations capitalize on those opportunities.”

eFolder’s strategy involves combining eFolder’s petabyte-scale storage and DR cloud with eFolder software as well as with leading third-party software tools, such as Dell AppAssure and StorageCraft ShadowProtect, to deliver integrated and comprehensive backup, business continuity, and disaster recovery solutions. In September 2013, eFolder acquired Anchor, the only comprehensive file synchronization platform built exclusively for managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), and IT service providers. According to Kevin Hoffman, CEO of eFolder, the company has reached more than 1,800 transacting partners.

“eFolder is honored to be recognized as a Coolest Cloud Vendor by CRN,” says Ted Hulsy, VP of Marketing. “During this period of tremendous company growth, this award further validates our ability to anticipate the demands of the IT channel and equip partners with a powerful solution suite to meet their clients’ needs.”

Coverage of the 100 Coolest Cloud Vendors will be featured in the February issue of CRN, and online athttp://www.CRN.com.

Amazon Integration Now Included in the Nexternal eCommerce Platform

Nexternal, a leader in cloud-based eCommerce software, is  excited to announce that Amazon Marketplace integration is now included in its eCommerce Platform. Using Nexternal’s eCommerce platform, merchants are able to sell their products in their own branded online stores, their mobile stores, on the phone, and now also in the Amazon Marketplace. Amazon hosts the World’s biggest online marketplace so it can be a powerful channel for merchants to grow their online sales. With this new integration, when a merchant’s product is ordered on Amazon.com, that order now seamlessly flows into the merchant’s Nexternal Order Management System (just like an order from their branded store) for efficient processing. All orders are consolidated in one system and inventory is accurately tracked. Additionally, products and inventory are kept in sync automatically within the merchant’s Amazon Seller Central account, so management is super-efficient.

After enabling the Amazon Integration in Nexternal, Pete Hitesman of Relentless Improvement shared, “I have had at least an Amazon order per day in the past month. It continues to bring in customers that are new within my system, which is a truly beautiful thing. The Nexternal team did a great job in getting the Amazon integration up and running!”

Alex Gile, president of Nexternal added, “Most of our clients can benefit from using Amazon as an online sales channel to further bolster the sales volume they receive in their branded online stores. We wanted to make selling on Amazon incredibly efficient for them and by all accounts we have succeeded. I predict that within a few short months, the majority of our business-to-consumer clients will generate significant order volume simply by enabling this tool in their Nexternal accounts.”
