LEWISVILLE, Texas, Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Blackhawk Engagement Solutions, a global incentives and engagement company, today announced the launch of a proprietary, international channel engagement platform. The new software program is designed to allow vendors to quickly and easily launch and manage channel engagement programs that incent sales-driving behaviors.
This cloud-based platform, combined with Blackhawk Engagement Solutions' regional support and robust rewards portfolio, allows vendors to:
- Centralize partner incentives into one hub
- Automate and streamline validation and payments
- Create, launch and manage campaigns in real-time
- Register partners, communicate and provide benefits statements in one location, and centralize reporting and dashboards across incentive programs
- Access a catalog of relevant, localized rewards for international participants, ranging from prepaid cards to premium retail merchandise and travel
The ease and speed of the platform allows channel managers the ability to create and launch configurable incentive programs that respond quickly to shifting market pressures.
"Our research shows that businesses want to reward their channel resellers for behaviors like participating in training and lead generation, in addition to meeting their sales goals. However, developing and managing programs to incent these behaviors has proven a complex process with little insight into overall effectiveness," said Dan Hawtof, vice president of Product and Business Development, Channel Solutions for Blackhawk Engagement Solutions. "Our new platform gives channel managers an easy, self-service solution to create, launch, communicate and analyze incentives programs, rewarding resellers for everything from sales behaviors to closed sales in an easy-to-navigate portal."
Blackhawk Engagement Solutions' new SaaS channel engagement platform includes benefits such as lower costs and quicker timeline for implementation, reduced risks for user errors that often occur with manual calculations, and a more rapid process from start to finish that can save users valuable resources. The BES channel engagement platform may be used in indirect sales channels such as home improvement, auto aftermarket, healthcare, agribusiness and technology, to name a few.
The new channel platform is an element of Blackhawk Engagement Solutions' comprehensive channel industry offerings. Blackhawk Engagement Solutions is a single-source provider with leading technology and services to simplify channel incentives.
