Program Provides Integrators a Potent, Cloud-Based Scheduling and Workforce Management Service for Their Clients

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) -  Shiftboard, Inc., the leading provider of online and mobile scheduling software, today announced a new partnership program designed to help technology providers, value-added resellers (VARs) and system integrators needing a cloud-based scheduling solution. Through a collaborative relationship with Shiftboard, partners can define their own workplace solutions across a variety of industries, while also expanding current offerings to an entirely new customer channel. Existing Shiftboard clients can find complementary products, training and support systems to enhance their current workforce management and recruiting solutions.

The partnership program is designed to facilitate a relationship between software developers, technology service providers and Shiftboard's scheduling solution -- all while expanding the unique software to new industries. Partners can choose to offer custom branded versions of Shiftboard's flexible platform, or create an all-new, fully customizable white-label product to suit their individual needs. Either option provides access to the most innovative scheduling solution on the market, allowing partners to generate additional revenue and preserve product development budgets.

  • The Software Partner Program allows developers and web content publishers to broaden their product footprint. Through Shiftboard's open API, software partners can launch custom workforce management systems, create new solutions and achieve seamless integration with an existing product matrix.

  • The Product and Device Partner Program allows manufacturers to differentiate their product line by combining real-time scheduling, workforce and service management functionality with the product. Working with a proven system, products can reach the market faster, with less risk, and a smaller development budget.

  • The Technology Provider Partner Program allows service providers to support a fully integrated workforce scheduling and personnel data system. Providers can effortlessly link Shiftboard's unique workforce offerings with existing work-flow and process management tools such as ERP, CRM, recruiting, time tracking, and payroll.

The new partnership program includes dedicated technical support and services necessary to empower successful partnerships. Technical resources include a robust API, documentation, and real-time development and test tools.
