Our partnerships are built on an ecosystem of companies that consist of four different partner types:
Management consultancies, system integrators, consulting houses, contractors, support organizations: Enhance or expand the ability to deliver complex IT and managed services projects.
Independent software vendor (ISV), outsourcing, technology, infrastructure organization, or IoT. Provide infrastructure and/or software, complement the software capabilities offered by IFS and allow for network connectivity.
Distributors, vendors, consultants, systems integrators (SI), technology deployment consultancies and value-added resellers (VARs) and other such organizations.
All ‘types’ of partners can become resellers of IFS Applications (subject to agreement). To enable IFS and our partners to deliver a customer project effectively and fully, IFS partners with third-party software and technology companies and may act as a reseller of their software or technology.
There are four levels of relationships, which are categorized by the level of commitments and deliverables between the companies.
This is the entry point for building the foundation for a long-lasting business relationship. IFS will recommend best practices to help your organization increase sales opportunities. You will have access to training, marketing and sales resources as well as the opportunity to refer customers to IFS. Over time, we want to develop Authorized Partners into experts who sell complete IFS solutions.
Silver Partners have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the IFS Partner Network to determine how IFS will complement their company’s strengths. At this tier, your expertise will come into play as you start to create case studies and align with the IFS sales organization on a deeper level. Silver Partners receive all the Authorized level benefits plus guidance and support from the Partner Network Office to maximize your investment.
The Gold Partner level is a collaborative alliance with expertise in specific industries or solutions. Gold Partners receive all the Silver level benefits while experiencing greater visibility within the IFS sales organization. You will receive increased support from IFS, including access to our extranet, elevated priority within our internal website, invitations to participate in more co-sponsored events and the sales tools needed to accelerate business growth. Business reviews will help ensure that the path to a higher tier is clear and obtainable.
Platinum partners have demonstrated proficiency in delivering customer value with a clear focus on selling complex solutions. You will receive dedicated support from IFS, including access to our extranet, top priority within our internal website, exclusive co-sponsored events and the sales tools needed not only to accelerate business growth, but also sustain this elite status. Business and executive reviews demonstrate the mutual commitment to continued success.
Depending on the active commitment and alignment of the partner relationship, IFS partners who elect to enter the IFS Partner Network are eligible to receive benefits that cover marketing and sales, product and service tools and support.
Through the IFS Partner Network, IFS and its partners commit to building and maintaining productive win-win relationships that are passionately aligned with our customers’ success. We set expectations and benchmarks for each partner type and level to ensure our partners are getting the most out of their relationship with IFS and stay on track for success. Based on partner type, some of these expectations include:
- Participate in and support joint activities that drive our customers to deliver outstanding solutions for their business.
- Participate in the development of the joint offering and integration between partner products and IFS products.
- Participate in joint sales and marketing initiatives to promote the joint offering.
- Participate in the IFS Partner and Certification Program to acquire relevant certifications.
