ASG Technologies, the only provider of integrated and flexible end-to-end solutions for the information powered enterprise, today announced the creation of a Partner Advisory Council. While ASG welcomes input from each of its partners, the Council presents a formal way to get hands-on experience in guiding the company’s product roadmap, upcoming programs and policies. The strategic insights gathered from the Partner Advisory Council will directly influence ASG’s strategic product direction and investment decisions. The Council will also ensure all partners are armed with the best tools to market, sell and support ASG’s solutions as they solve their customers’ demanding business challenges.
The Partner Advisory Council currently consists of 12 executives at partner organizations, including representatives from Accenture, Primitive Logic and Zia Consulting. The Council will rotate members on an annual basis. New members will be selected to represent viewpoints from each of ASG’s product solutions, geographical markets and partner business models. The Council also currently has 10 ASG members, representing key internal stakeholders, including executive, sales and service leadership; product management; global enablement; and the global partner program office.
While all ASG partners are encouraged to share input on an ongoing basis, Partner Advisory Council members will have a formal platform to do so during regular meetings and surveys. Members will meet six times each year – four times virtually and twice in person. The next face-to-face meeting will be on October 21, the first day of ASG’s annual digital transformation event, EVOLVE19. Beyond being tapped for their strategic insight, members of the Council will receive tactical direction and roadmap strategies from ASG executives to help drive their own planning and implementation decisions toward success.
“ASG’s commitment to offering the most relevant products and solutions has always aligned well with Zia’s efforts to do what’s right for our customers,” said Mike Mahon, CEO of Zia Consulting. “Joining the company’s Partner Advisory Council in its foundational year made complete sense as it enables Zia to be directly involved in further promoting its initiative to focus on our customers. We look forward to offering our perspective and taking part in what ASG has planned for the future.”
“At ASG, we are committed to delivering not only the best solutions, but also ensuring our customers’ and partners’ evolving needs are constantly met,” said Wayne Monk, senior vice president, global alliances and channel sales, ASG Technologies. “That mission hasn’t changed, so we wanted to create a more direct platform to understand what those needs are. Receiving firsthand insight from our Partner Advisory Council will take us one step further to providing a world-class partner program supporting next-generation solutions.”
ASG’s global partner program serves as an increasingly critical piece of its sales strategy. Built to offer valuable resources to partners, like Carahsoft, KPMG and Wipro, the program enables organizations to learn, grow and prosper when selling and supporting ASG solutions. The company’s growing channel – which currently has just over 60 active partners – encompasses global outsourcers, business partners and technology alliance partners.
