Acronis unveiled the details of the new Acronis #CyberFit Partner Program. This update to the company’s existing program says to place an increased emphasis on supporting partner development, particularly for cloud based services, while rewarding service providers and resellers for their expertise, commitment and growth with Acronis through performance based benefits and financial compensation.
Acronis provides a partner program that supports forward thinking go-to-market strategies enabling partners to earn more while deploying cloud based solutions that are uniquely suited to meet their clients’ modern protection challenges, as per the feedback from its partners.
“Acronis makes profitability of our partners a priority. Since the launch of Acronis Cyber Protect last year, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from partners about the ability to scale their business and increase their IT professionals’ productivity by orders of magnitude. Acronis Cyber Platform enabled partners to automate, customize and deliver cyber protection at a level that was not possible before. Now, with the introduction of the new #CyberFit Partner Program, focused on Cloud business, partners have all the tools to steadily grow their business and introduce new cyber protection services to their customers,” stated Serguei Beloussov, Acronis’ Founder and CEO.
The Acronis #CyberFit Partner Program claims to include:
• Financial incentives that increase as partners advance within the program’s levels, including rebates and proposal based market development funds (MDF).
• Marketing and sales assets, with additional marketing automation tools and renewal tools coming in March 2021.
• Account management assistance that increases with program level, with dedicated marketing support available to Platinum partners.
• Enhanced technical support to enable faster response times.
• Sales and technical training via the Acronis #CyberFit Academy, with courses available both live and online.
Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC noted, “In today’s digital focused world, it is critical for vendors to connect easily and efficiently with partners to optimize the user experience. Acronis’ new #CyberFit Partner Program was designed to create this exact kind of relationship. By enhancing this offering over the past few years, Acronis has demonstrated its commitment to providing total marketing, technical and financial support to its partners now and in the future with a dedication to cyber protection solutions.”
Acronis also revealed that beginning in March, partners will be able to engage with a new Partner Portal, a platform that will make account management and communication with Acronis easier than ever.
“Our partners’ success is our success. By increasing our sales, marketing and technical support tools and training, we’re making it easier than ever for partners to protect and delight their customers with Acronis’ world-class cyber protection solutions.
