Concurrent Computer Launches Worldwide Channel Partner Program

12/8/2004 - Concurrent Computer Corporation (NASDAQ: CCUR), Integrated Solutions Division, a leading provider of integrated computer solutions for mission-critical applications, announced the launch of its worldwide Channel Partner Program. Concurrent’s integrated solutions are used by leading companies in the simulation and training, data acquisition and process control industries on a global level. Concurrent, known for its real-time expertise since 1966, will now extend that reach to more varied market segments by partnering with complementary resellers. These companies will benefit by expanding their product offering with Concurrent’s high-performance iHawkTM multiprocessors powered by RedHawkTM Linux with related software and leveraging Concurrent’s infrastructure and real- time computing experience.

Concurrent’s partner program focuses on building synergistic relationships that take advantage of each participating company’s strengths, creating total solution opportunities for component and software suppliers. Concurrent is actively seeking reseller relationships with VARs (Value-Added Resellers) that will bundle their application software with Concurrent solutions; OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) that will embed Concurrent solutions with private labeling; and distributors that will sell stand-alone Concurrent products and services, as well as companies that strictly refer business to Concurrent.

Three levels of membership are defined – Basic, Certified and Strategic Partners – each level offering a range of cooperative marketing, sales, engineering, training and service benefits for cooperative selling. The program is structured to offer partners a path to grow their business with Concurrent and enjoy increased revenue and benefit opportunities.

Concurrent is actively engaging resellers into the new program including companies such as Binghamton Simulator Company, Inc. (BSC), a worldwide supplier of military and commercial flight equipment. “Concurrent is a leader in real-time technology. By joining their partner program, we can incorporate the best in their real-time technology with our own, allowing us to bring a superior product to our customers faster,” said Mark Peterson, manager of Software Engineering at BSC. “Revenue opportunities, partner training benefits and cooperative marketing and selling strengthens our ability to better serve our customers while driving revenue growth,” he added.

Concurrent’s Channel Partner Program will extend the reach of time-sensitive applications making real-time computing solutions available for businesses that depend on time-critical computing, such as the financial and medical industries as well as new business sectors.

“New applications for real-time technology are emerging every day. Through our channel program, our partners can focus on their core businesses while putting Concurrent’s more than 38 years of real-time expertise to work for them,” said Warren Neuburger, president of Concurrent’s Integrated Solutions Division. “The channel program will allow Concurrent to extend into new markets and allow our partners to offer their customers the strength of our combined technologies and services.”

Concurrent’s iHawk commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) based solutions are well suited to a partner program, allowing ease of integration for technologies, combined with best-of-class solutions in an open environment. This effectively gives customers improved productivity and operational efficiencies, with fast, simple-to-use, advanced real-time systems.

Concurrent is exhibiting at the I/ITSEC show in Orlando, Dec. 6-9. To learn more about the company’s Channel Partner Program or to enroll, visit the Concurrent booth, #2243.
