Sage launches unified Global Partner Program to promote partner growth in all markets
Comprehensive Global Partner Program supports on-premise, hybrid and cloud solutions for small and medium businesses
LONDON (October 2015) – Sage is simplifying, harmonising and globalising its partner relationships with its new Global Partner Program. As a champion for small and medium business, Sage’s streamlined program will provide its partners with enhanced benefits and incentives.
As the world’s leading small and medium business accounting, payments and payroll solutions provider, Sage’s reimagined partner model will provide world-class benefits and incentives to partners, supporting new customer acquisition and business growth for its growing Global Product portfolio, including Sage One, Sage Live, Sage Impact and Sage X3.
Available now for all partners, the Global Partner Program will introduce a simplified four-tiered engagement model for all partners, including SI’s, Resellers, VARs, ISV’s and Developers. Sage will also give concrete, ongoing support to partners as they adapt from on-premises sales strategies to cloud at the right pace for partners and their customers.
“To best serve the companies and users of tomorrow, we are building an ecosystem of partners that work together to put customers’ needs first and solve their increasingly complex business needs,” said Alan Laing, EVP, Global Partnerships and Alliances at Sage. “We want to help partners expand their offerings, while gaining new customers and growing their business as a result. Whether they are on-premise or operating in a hybrid or pure cloud platform, this is about supporting Sage partners in offering better support, infrastructure and benefits.”
The launch of the Global Partner Program comes on the heels of several recent partnership announcements including Microsoft, PwC and Deloitte. Earlier this year, Sage also announced a strategic partnership with Salesforce, enabling the development of Sage Live, which is built on the Salesforce1 platform.
