QlikTech, a leader in Business DiscoveryTM – user-driven Business Intelligence, today announced new enhancements to its solution provider program, Qonnect, aimed at increasing the benefits of partnering with and utilizing the impactful, user-focused simplicity QlikView technology. The goal of the enhanced Qonnect Partner Program is to further empower partners to grow their business more effectively. By providing a better structure and targeted guidance, solution providers are able to access increased program benefits, such as comprehensive sales, marketing and technical tools along with easy- to- access training, which ensures that partners obtain necessary skill sets and meet program requirements.
“Business Discovery, user-driven BI, pioneered by QlikTech, is opening up a whole new set of business opportunities for partner companies such as ours,” said Nigel Griffiths, Commercial Director at UK-based FD Systems, one of the largest software service centres in Europe. “Organisations increasingly appreciate that their fundamental issues relating to traditional business intelligence – such as ease of use, speed of delivery and cost – can be instantly addressed through QlikView, whilst they also benefit from powerful discovery tools that are intuitive for and designed around the end-user. With QlikTech’s new Qonnect Partner Program, we receive the training, support and mentoring that enables us to offer what I consider to be the strongest BI solution in a generation.”
Additional highlights from the advancements include:
- Self-serve training allows partners to be trained faster and more effectively. This includes a restructured and advanced live, on-demand content library, available to thousands of partner contacts around the world, making it easy for them to get relevant content exactly when they need it.
- Extensive product training courses, delivered by QlikTech Education Services, as well as the Values and Skills based training provided under QlikAcademy for Partners, are designed to help Solution Providers get to market quickly and realize a quick return on their education investment. QlikView certification further ensures partners are recognized for their competencies.
- Marketing benefits include services, content, funding, and support to facilitate the acceleration of partners’ business growth through targeted joint marketing efforts. QlikTech will continue to invest in marketing services that enable partners to target the right prospect or customer with the right message at the right time.
- Bonus margin program is a brand new Qonnect program element. Partners are able to gain additional margin for qualifying sales opportunities and for an increased investment in selected aspects of their QlikView business.
Program enhancements were announced at the Qonnections Partner Summit, held on April 3 to April 6 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Miami Beach, FL. The Summit delivered important partner enablement content and aimed to convey QlikTech company values to all attending partners. These same values, experienced by any individual that works for QlikTech, play a pivotal role in their approach to working with partners and customers.
