Allbound Releases Co/Labs
Allbound, providers of a partner sales acceleration platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution, today unveiled Co/Labs to help streamline and simplify communication and collaboration between organizations and their channel partners with in-app messaging and secure collaboration rooms similar to popular platforms like Slack and Salesforce Chatter.
"Helping partners feel included and engaged is a natural challenge for partner programs and an area where most partners feel their vendors come up short," said Scott Salkin, Allbound's founder and CEO, in a statement. "Meanwhile, over the last few years, we've seen collaboration platforms such as Slack make huge strides in helping teams work together more effectively and efficiently. We're excited to bring a similar concept to the channel to help break down barriers, clear up clutter, and most importantly, accelerate partner sales. By embedding collaboration in the way they do business day in and day out, we envision the real-time, simple nature of Co/Labs helping businesses eliminate the need for inter-channel email altogether."
With the addition of Co/Labs, Allbound delivers partner enablement, communications, deal tracking, and marketing support into one integrated solution. Part of a larger collaboration suite that includes a curated Team Directory, Co/Labs enables instant file and link sharing, group and one-to-one discussions, and secure collaboration rooms for teams and partners. The intelligent collaboration tool was created specifically for channel, integrating key features such as the ability to archive, track and search data.
"Co/Labs solves so many real-world headaches that we’ve heard about firsthand from our customers and their partners," said Kyle Burnett, co-founder and chief technology officer at Allbound, in a statement. "Now it's possible for a vendor sales rep and technical engineer to collaborate and share ideas, content, and data with their partners in real time. Then, for example, invite a teammate from finance or legal to join the conversation, download a copy of a contract, re-upload a clean version, and view a history of the entire conversation in one place. Then securely archive everything. Its truly game changing."
