2013-08-28 15:08:04 - The Channelplace Partner Finder enables any vendor present their partners easily and professionally
Landau/Germany, August 28, 2013 – Channelplace, leading provider of a flexible partner collaboration management (PCM), announced that it now offers its Partner Finder as a stand-alone solution for the presentation of partner information on company websites. The functionality has already been available since February as a module of the Chan-nelplace partner collaboration management platform. "We decided to take this step, be-cause we received numerous inquiries about the Partner Finder. Many partner lists are maintained manually and the data quickly becomes out of date or incomplete. Compa-nies want to offer added value and make it easy for potential customers to find exactly the partner that best fits their needs - having experience with their IT structures or sys-tems, with their industry
or company size or simply being in close proximity" explains Diana Ricken, head of Channelplace.
The Partner Finder can be easily integrated into any website and adapted to the compa-ny design. The partner data comes directly from a central partner directory, which can be updated at any time by the partner management team in a user-friendly web console that is also used to define which information to display and which search criteria to use. When a partner has been selected, interested parties can complete a built-in contact form and notifications will automatically go out to the selected partner, as well as to the respective partner manager, thus ensuring that contact requests are tracked and fol-lowed up on.
Vendors with strong partner orientation generally have an interest to bring together po-tential customers with qualified partners. Usually they list all partners on their website for this purpose with the presentations taking the form of simple lists to interactive maps. "Best match" and "current data" is what customers expect of all vendors who present their partners on their website. Jörg Rosenthal, product manager Channelplace, ex-plains: "Not all vendors are ready to benefit from a comprehensive partner relationship management solution. The Partner Finder provides some clearly focused functionality, enabling vendors to maintain, organize, classify, up- date and present partner data. To meet different needs, we have designed both content and layout to be very flexible in-deed. Flexible search criteria and custom attributes as well as web design customiza-tions are part of the standard package. "
"The new Partner Finder tool is a stand-alone solution with a clear focus." The conditions are very attractive and the customers can have everything implemented within a week, including partner data upload and design customizations." Diana Ricken summarizes the benefits of the new Channelplace Partner Finder.
