SILICON SLOPES, Utah, Aug. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Like a needle scraping off a long-play record, global pure-play Partner Relationship Management (PRM) leader Impartner, today announced a new webinar featuring Tim Harmon, principal analyst with Forrester Research, which reveals a startling, "stop the music" stat for Channel Chiefs looking to scale their partner networks: Every dollar invested in a PRM solution saves as much as $10 in reduced manual business costs. Watch the webinar here.
In the webinar, "Through The Channel Looking Glass: Your Channel's Value is a Reflection of Digital Engagement," Harmon joins Impartner Chief Marketing Officer Dave R Taylor to discuss how modern PRM platforms can remediate channel pros' most immediate challenges including:
- Escalating channel management costs due to inefficiencies
- Constraints to scaling your channel
- Inability to attract the most productive partners
While the webinar covers a host of key trends in the channel and how PRM solves those challenges, the critical summary is simple: in 2016, a world class PRM solution is table stakes for companies wanting to ensure they are a vendor of choice and can scale their channel programs quickly and profitably.
"PRM automation attracts the right partners and that's what you want – the RIGHT partners," says Harmon in the webinar. "They're attracted by the digital capabilities the same way consumers are, and they're going to be attracted to those vendors and manufacturers that provide the best digital engagement mediums for them. Partners equate PRM digital engagement with their ease of doing business with profitability."
Just as important, Harmon shares another stat about PRM solutions' ability to help channel programs with the problem of scale. "PRM automation scales – spreadsheets and email can only take you so far – and that approach hits the ceiling at about 50 partners," he said during the session.
