Challenges Partner Teams Face

We work with those on partner teams, and those within product management teams who are responsible for planning and implementing channel partner strategies and campaigns.

These teams come to us for help when they are...

• Concerned they don't have the tools and training their partners need in order to sell more of their products.

• Frustrated their partner program might be inferior to their competitors' partner programs.

• Worried they don't understand their partners' concerns, business challenges, and what they think about the company, its products, and its program offerings.

• Uncomfortable with the lack of knowledge about how their partners make money.
