LongJump Introduces Partner Friendly Program for Delivery of Software-as-a-Service Solutions — Partners Drive Day-to-Day Relationships with Client, Enjoy Upsell Opportunities and Earn Multi-Year Commissions
SAN FRANCISCO, Apr 25, 2008 — Today at the Web 2.0 Conference and Expo, LongJump, a provider of highly customizable, interconnected on-demand business applications, unveiled a “Jumpstart Partner” reseller program. The new program serves the requirements of resellers, developers, and consultants with either a vertical market focus or a functional business area focus, such as CRM or HR. LongJump helps partners implement their technical expertise and best practices and provide customized consulting services and training to businesses.
LongJump’s Jumpstart Partner Program is ideal for resellers who want to leverage a true multi-tenant, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform and deliver custom database-driven applications that meet their customers’ needs. The program was designed to provide partners with an exceptionally attractive incremental revenue channel where they can monetize LongJump’s platform with their own premium services.
“To stay on the leading edge, resellers want to participate in the growing SaaS market. Therefore, LongJump plans to invest aggressively in our partners through lead generation campaigns, business opportunity referrals and generous multi-year commission plans. We believe that resellers will find LongJump a true partner in growing their business and maximizing revenue-building opportunities,” noted Pankaj Malviya, LongJump’s CEO.
Although SaaS-based solutions are growing in popularity, resellers who have customarily delivered on-premise solutions have looked to leverage the ease of delivery of SaaS but still maintain a strong connection with their customers and provide premium services. With its new program, LongJump will maintain the customer relationship merely from a technology perspective, but the day-to-day relationship with the customer will be owned by each partner. LongJump’s robust enterprise-grade feature set and uniquely affordable price point also gives partners the opportunity to upsell their services across the entire organization.
The Jumpstart Partner Program has two participation tiers: a Silver Medalist and a premier Gold Medalist level. Certified partners benefit by having more leads directed to them by LongJump. There is a one-time program fee for certification, but to kick-start its program, LongJump will waive the program fee for the first 20 partners who sign up at the Gold Medalist level.
As part of its Jumpstart Partner Program, LongJump will provide comprehensive sales tools and materials, sales support for complex deals, lead generation and qualification programs, training and certification designed to rapidly prepare partners to build applications and provide custom implementation services to their existing customers or new ones. LongJump also plans to participate in co-marketing initiatives with Gold Medalist partners.
