Published: Tuesday, 17 May 2016 08:53

Sungard AS has announced the expansion of its Channel Partner Program into the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, Luxemburg and Sweden. Sungard AS introduced its Channel Partner Program in 2009 across the US and Canada. The European expansion comes after the continued success of this existing programme, which has produced consecutive year over year double digit growth and been repeatedly recognised with partner and industry awards.

The flexible program offers a collaborative ‘sell with’ field organization with focused sales enablement, go-to-market support, exclusive lead registration and competitive compensation for partners ranging from boutique consultancies to cloud hosting multinationals. As part of its joint selling model, Sungard AS works with partners to provide complete solutions to their joint customers, meeting their evolving needs for as-a-service delivery models and OPEX financing.

Sungard AS expects continued investments in its partner program in Europe, including expanding its team with both Pan-European and in-country channel sales managers, significantly contributing to the growth of its European channel-enabled revenue.

Partners will benefit from a full portfolio of recovery, business continuity, managed IT and cloud services which can satisfy any customer IT requirement. Other program benefits include access to the Sungard AS’ established ecosystem of strategic technology partners: including Cisco, EMC and NetApp – and application partners such as SAP and Oracle
