Epicor Announces Three-Tiered Channel Partner Incentive Program
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions for the midmarket and divisions of Global 1000 companies, today announced its new three-tiered channel partner incentive program in the Americas. Comprehensive enhancements to the Epicor Partners for Growth Program aim to reward dedicated partners, providing increased support to the Company's expanding value-added reseller (VAR) sales channel.
When joining the Epicor Partners for Growth Program, partners select the VAR classification that best fits their business model and goals—Full Service Partner, Sales Partner, or Authorized Consulting Partner—dependent on the level of engagement desired, as well as available expertise and resources. Epicor is committed to rewarding all levels of partners for loyalty and the value-add they bring to customers.
The new incentive program is categorized into three achievement levels with partners now qualify as Certified Gold, Certified Silver or Certified. Each certification level offers expanded incentives and rewards for success in selling and level of involvement with Epicor, with Certified Gold partners qualifying for the greatest support under the new program.
"Epicor's new three-tier partner incentive program is another big step in providing partners with a program that rewards them, not only for sales revenues, but creates a true partnership with those that are interested in investing in Epicor," said Kenneth E. Smith, Epicor partner council chairman and authorized partner, Software Technology Concepts.
Incentives in the new three-tier approach include increased sales margins, an intensive partner training and certification process, as well as direct reimbursement on marketing development funds. Each of these aspects include a variety of benefits ranging from marketing funds, co-branding and increased commissions to discounted participation at Epicor's three annual partner events.
"The announcement today reflects Epicor's continued commitment to its channel partners," said Salena Butler, director of channel sales for Epicor. "We continue to see substantial growth in our channel sales program, with nearly 30% of annual software license revenue contribution coming from partners.
