Jola has announced it now has over 900 partners, 203 of which signed between April 2020 and December 2020. This follows last week’s announcement that the company has recently onboarded nine employees.
The company said the growth has been driven by resellers pivoting into products and sectors that are still buying amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. When the country first went into lockdown last year, Jola initially saw a downturn for many of its core products due to some sectors halting operations.
Cherie Howlett (pictured), CMO, Jola, explained, “During the pandemic we focused our sales and marketing efforts on helping partners find and win opportunities within existing customers. We also found partners already delivering 4G projects and helped them win more business using Jola’s differentiated solutions.”
Lee Broxson, CSO, Jola, added, “We now have MSPs rolling out intelligent connectivity solutions for digital signage and devices to measure the temperature of pre-vaccination patients. Resellers are selling mobile data SIMs for tablets, to enable students to participate in remote learning. Others are providing 4G routers to local doctors’ surgeries, to facilitate online appointments.”
