NEED OF A PARTNER PROGRAMME
Partner (Channel partner) is the backbone of the fourth ‘P’ of marketing i.e. “Place”. Technology partners are integral part of the Solutions world and are an extended arm of a company to promote its products and services to end customers. These partnerships augment the sales teams, broaden the reach, and provide the customers with a complete solution if the technology is vetted, tested, and add value to your ecosystem.
Thus partner programme is very important to give comfort level and win their loyalties towards a brand. A partner program is a business strategy that vendors use to encourage channel partners to recommend or sell the vendor's products and associated services.
