Sage North America yesterday announced the expansion of its Endorsed Development Partner Program to include Sage SalesLogix, its customizable CRM system for small and midsized businesses.
Endorsed Partner Solutions are available exclusively from Sage, offering customers additional functionality that integrates with Sage products. Endorsed Partner Solutions are reviewed, qualified, and supported directly by Sage and deliver a complete customer experience including purchase, training, support, and maintenance.
Project Management Express Edition for Sage SalesLogix powered by TimeLinx extends the successful Endorsed Development Partner Program to Sage SalesLogix. The solution embeds project management and time- and expense-entry functions within Sage SalesLogix LAN, Web client, and cloud offerings for use by senior management, marketing/sales, service/support, and finance professionals. Additional solutions for integration with Sage SalesLogix are in review.
"Endorsed partner solutions produce multiple benefits," explained Dan Wilzoch, senior vice president and general manager of Sage CRM Solutions. "Customers get more functionality choices with the ease of purchasing solutions directly from Sage and the assurance we qualified them. Our development partners get their products exposed to 3.2 million Sage CRM Solutions customers, and business partners who implement Sage SalesLogix can likewise develop additional revenue streams by answering customers’ business process challenges with these purpose-built solutions."
Sage introduced its enhanced Endorsed Development Partner Program in 2009 for Sage ERP products and for Sage Employer Solutions in 2010. The program has achieved double-digit compound year-over-year revenue growth for Sage and participating partners since inception.
