ATTRACT MORE CUSTOMERS AND INCREASE SALES THROUGH SYMBIOTIC PARTNERSHIPS.
The Challenges of Partner to Partner Ecosystems
In today’s world of complex purchasing dynamics, it is no longer sufficient to focus sales efforts solely on the hierarchy within the Information Technology industry. Line-of-business management is far more relevant, and purchasing decisions are much more important. These decisions rely on input from multiple sources. This includes outside advisers, vertical business consultants, internet research, technical and management consulting firms and complementary software vendors. Partner to partner ecosystems have never been more important.
We know selling part of a solution is no longer satisfactory. Whilst your value proposition may be detailed and well defined, it is more beneficial to be part of a more complete solution that offers the exact benefits your customers want. This can be hard to effectively achieve alone, which is where complementary vendor partners come in – you help them expand their customer footprint and open new markets, whilst they help you extend the reach of your brand and generate important new revenue.
