ATLANTA, March 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global business integration solutions provider SEEBURGER announced today that its recently expanded program for channel partners specializing in SAP services has earned a 5-Star Partner rating in CRN's 2012 Partner Programs Guide. The upgraded SEEBURGER partner program provides new tools enabling VARs and system integrators to generate incremental revenues by enhancing the value of mid-market customers' SAP deployments with multiple business-to-business integration solutions, including trading partner communications, file sharing and automated order-to-cash processing delivered on a single unified SEEBURGER platform that seamlessly integrates with SAP.
Vendor inclusion in the 2012 CRN Partner Programs Guide and CRN 5-Star Rating is based on an evaluation of each vendor's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. The guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT channel.
"Any VAR or system integrator with an SAP practice has rich revenue opportunities from selling add-on solutions that can maximize B2B integration and thereby optimize business operations. Last year, we enhanced our partner program to strengthen the sales, marketing, technical and support services we offer to assist the channel in driving this business," said Rohit Khanna, EVP, Global Strategy & Corporate Development, at SEEBURGER. "This recognition from CRN is a direct result of these changes, ranging from new online opportunity registration and partner portal features to the dedicated global channel and alliance team we now have to help partners grow their revenues."
The SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) provides a central platform and data hub for configuring, executing and managing multiple B2B processes, eliminating the need for point solutions that add deployment and management overhead. The BIS suite includes the SEEBURGER B2B Gateway, which automates trading partner communications; SEEBURGER Managed File Transfer (SEE MFT), a multiple-award-winning set of solutions providing secure and auditable exchange of sensitive and/or large files that exceed email attachment limitations; application integration capabilities to enable seamless data exchange across applications; and SAP solution extensions that provide fully automated order-to-cash, SCM monitoring and related functions enabling benefits such as faster time to revenue.
Key selling points for VARs and system integrators include:
- Tight integration of all components with SAP, enabling seamless transaction message generation, validation and tracking for supply chain communications; secure SAP file sharing both inside and outside the firewall; end-to-end automation of order-to-cash processes from order entry and verification to delivery, invoicing and receipt of payment; and more.
- A single modular platform that supports multiple business integration functions, enabling customers to add new components without adding new infrastructure.
- A WebEDI option that makes it possible to exchange purchase orders and other transaction messages electronically with customers or suppliers without an in-house EDI infrastructure.
- One consolidated view of both structured and unstructured data exchange activity, streamlining administration and increasing visibility for governance and regulatory compliance.
- Cloud, managed services or on-premise deployment options, along with rapid implementation and fast return on investment.
"The companies listed in CRN's 2012 Partner Programs Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director, for UBM Channel's CRN. "The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership."
