Open-source pioneer Alfresco Software has announced its top-performing global partners for fiscal year 2017. More than 200 partner companies – including system integrators, software vendors, and resellers – participate in Alfresco’s partner program providing consulting, integration services and training for the Alfresco Digital Business Platform.
This year’s awards recognise leading partners who have developed new business, and enhanced integration between their sales teams and Alfresco’s direct sales as part of the Alfresco Global Partner Program. The program helps the company recruit and onboard global and regional partners, streamlines the Alfresco OEM program, and allows partners to build certified solutions based on the modular Alfresco Digital Business Platform.
“We are pleased to recognise some of our best and most innovative partners for the work they do to provide value for our customers with integrated and open process, content, and governance services,” said Bob Crissman, vice president of global channel sales at Alfresco. “They have been particularly instrumental in the recent rollout of our new Alfresco Digital Business Platform – which offers the industry’s only open platform for content, process and governance services. We are looking forward to working with our partner to accelerate time to value and deploy solutions in a fraction of the time compared to traditional ECM and BPM platforms.”
