Alfresco Software, an open source, content services provider today announced its Fiscal year 2019 Partner Award winners – each of whom are on the front lines of digital innovation. Additionally, Alfresco launched a newly designed globally standardized program that simplifies the way Alfresco conducts business with its Partners to increase the opportunities for profitability for both Partners and Alfresco alike.
Alfresco has further increased its commitment to its Partners and continues to invest significantly in building and enhancing the program. The company recently expanded its Global Systems Integrator network with the addition of Texas-headquartered NTT Data and its 50,000 professionals worldwide, who can support cloud migrations, streamline business processes or upgrade aging infrastructures.
Key highlights of the newly designed program include the development of new partner tiers, the creation of a new partner portal, quarterly business reviews, the creation of joint go-to-market campaigns, dedicated marketing resources, additional sales and support, and other key business enhancements.
For the Partner Awards, each winning partner had to demonstrate a notable commitment to the Alfresco Partner Program and have achieved a compelling digital transformation for joint customers – whether they were recognized for innovative use of the Alfresco Digital Business Platform, or for creative implementation of an Alfresco industry solution.
Scott Elliott, Senior Vice President, Alfresco Worldwide Alliances and Channels, noted: “These awards recognize those partners that delivered innovative and unique Alfresco-based services and solutions that solved our joint customers’ most critical business challenges. We’re proud to work with these companies and these awards are a testament to our partners’ dedication in solving problems, shaping industry trends within key markets, and creating real business value and results.”
