Towards Cloud-based Business Models
“We have revised our partner program to meet the changing and varied demand for content capture solutions, particularly as more industries move towards cloud-based business models,” said Tim McMullin, vice president of Ephesoft’s channel sales for the Americas. “We succeed when our partners succeed. This program provides forward-thinking partners with more stake in the game, more money in their pockets and an even better-defined path to work with Ephesoft as they help customers worldwide solve unstructured data problems through best-of-breed cloud, hybrid and on-premise solutions.”
Enabling Solution Creation
Ephesoft’s new Global Partner Program reflects a commitment to long-term partnerships and mutually beneficial relationships. The new program has an emphasis on deepening and expanding rewards for Ephesoft’s most committed partners. As more resellers adapt to the rapid influx of cloud environments, Ephesoft addresses this market change, allowing for more flexibility. Overall, Ephesoft’s program is designed to enable solution creation for its customers around the world.
“We enjoy working with the Ephesoft team as they truly understand the value of the business partner relationship. They get that collaborating together with qualified and certified partners becomes an extension of their company, both sharing the same mission to succeed. They’re one of the few software developers in the enterprise capture space that has this mindset. It also doesn’t hurt that the Ephesoft platform is robust in functionality and their Web Services OpenAPIs offer flexibility and scalability for easy integration with other line of business applications,” said Gerry Manna, president of Computer SI Corporation, a Gold level partner who joined the Ephesoft team last year. “It is exciting to see that Ephesoft is making great progress with its partner program. We look forward to the expanded options this updated program provides with even more upside and flexibility to help us win deals.”
“Working with Ephesoft gives us an easy path to introduce an innovative, end-to-end solution to the time consuming and costly challenge of manual, paper-based content capture that many of our customers experience,” said Deb Dwyer, general manager at Informotion, a global Platinum reseller based in Australia. “They are on the forefront of cloud technology, which aligns with both Informotion and the market’s direction at the right price. Ephesoft’s technology is an easy way for customers to capture, classify, extract and export data into their TRIM / Content Manager system. We’ve already done several joint events which were well attended and positioned us with similar forward-thinking, industry leaders.”
The Ephesoft Global Partner Program includes valuable training and support, including computer-based and onsite training, as well as advanced courses in multiple locations around the world. The program includes four levels: platinum, gold, silver and authorized referral partners. New partners and resellers will onboard with this new Global Partner Program.
