VersAccounts* Launches EcoSphere* Channel Partner Program For Value Added Resellers (VARs) Continues Disruption of Traditional Accounting/ERP Software Industry Based on Simple, Fair, and Common Sense Practices including Perpetual 50% Margin and Elimination of Program Fees and Tiered Benefits
ATLANTA, PORTLAND, Ore., VANCOUVER, British Columbia and TORONTO, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VersAccounts* Ltd. today launched its EcoSphere Solution Provider Network Program to partner with Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Referral Consultants.
"We have been working with channel partners globally for over a year, and developed this program with them" said Sunil Pande, CEO of VersAccounts. "It is based on our core principals of simplicity, fairness, transparency, and common sense, and rejects the complicated, deal based approaches to partnering that are common today. We aspire to work with the channel as true partners in a co-equal and collaborative relationship. One sided partnering arrangements don't have any place in the future. They are bad for the partner, and as a consequence bad for customers, and we will have nothing to do with them."
"The VersAccounts Solution Provider Program continues our tradition of challenging the norm" said Jay Wendland, Head of Sales and Chief Partner Advocate at VersAccounts. "Unlike traditional reseller programs we don't charge an annual membership fee. We also offer free unlimited 24x7x365 priority support to our partners. Partner margins are 50% in perpetuity, and we reject the whole concept of achievement tiers."
VersAccounts was founded to offer ERP to even the "smallest of the small" among Small Businesses. Many small businesses have IT system needs that are every much as sophisticated as those of their largest competitors. But they have never had the financial resources to afford what was required. As a result they made do. By improvising. Putting multiple incompatible systems together into a solution. Excel for inventory. Quickbooks Online for invoicing. Quickbooks 2003 for purchase orders, Microsoft Outlook for CRM etc.
VersAccounts has changed all that. By making a powerful modern cloud ERP system available to these companies at a price they can easily afford. A system that is fully mobile. One that is much more capable than anything their competitors have. Finally creating a level field.
VersAccounts customer Defiant Industrial LED is a small but fast growing supplier of durable, high-quality LED lighting solutions for industrial applications. With products manufactured globally and distribution across North America, Defiant needed a reliable and flexible solution to meet the company's evolving needs. VersAccounts enables Defiant to manage the company's entire operation within a single, affordable system that they would not outgrow.
"Working with VersAccounts is actually fun," said Fred Blauer, of Fred Blauer Associates, a consulting alliance based in Montreal, Canada. "They have a great product that can address the real life problems of businesses with advanced ERP needs. Even if these businesses are small. And they are easy to work with. I have been working with them on several deals for many months now and always found them very responsive and transparent in their dealings. I look forward to helping VersAccounts evolve their offering in the years to come and to servicing mutual clients."
