New Partnership Structure Is Coming To Inflectra

June 16, 2021

Here at Inflectra, we’ve been taking some time to evaluate our partner relationships and do some deep thinking about how we can best support them. When the company first started, our goal was to partner with as many consulting and product companies as possible to grow brand awareness. Being a global company, that’s a lot of ground to cover! Over time we’ve entered into hundreds of partnerships – some strong and long-lasting, and some less so. 

When Inflectra’s Partner Manager position was created a few years ago, it was with this goal in mind: support and develop those partner relationships with strong synergies and shared mutual goals. After months of strategy and brainstorming sessions, drafts and revisions, we’ve developed an initial structure that we believe will best highlight the added value our partner network brings to our customers and the geographic and thematic variety of partnerships we nurture. For partners, this structure is intended to provide resources, opportunities for collaboration, support, and above all, unparalleled incentives. 

Without further ado, let us proceed with the unveiling.
