Sage Global Partner Program

The reimagined Sage Global Partner Program 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 VARs, ISVs and developers. Sage will also give concrete, ongoing support to partners as they adapt from on-premises to cloud sales strategies at the right pace for partners and their customers.

Sage North America Partner Program

The Sage North America Partner Program has five key strategic objectives to promote partner success: market share growth, revenue growth, customers for life, transition to subscription and partner value creation.

This program supports mutual growth with a focus on the acquisition of new customers, as well as enhancing engagement to retain customers. The wide breadth of solutions available to Sage partners, including a transition to subscription-based licensing, empowers them to accelerate their growth through sales to businesses of all sizes. Additionally, the Sage investment in partner training and enablement programs demonstrates a commitment to rewarding partners for both performance and capabilities.

"As businesses continue to evolve, our partners need access to an expanding set of solutions that help their customers overcome those challenges," said Rich Spring, executive vice president and chief revenue officer, Sage North America. "The updated North America Partner Program represents the culmination of several recent strategic partnership announcements, with the end goal of helping partners leverage all the resources at their disposal to enjoy continued profitability and growth."

"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-premises 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 companies like Microsoft, PwC and Xactly. Earlier this year, Sage also announced a strategic partnership with Salesforce, enabling the development of Sage Live, which is built on the Salesforce1 platform.

To sign up, partners can speak to their local Sage representative and also look at the certification criteria on the Sage.com website. http://go.sage.com/reimagine-business
