Go Forward! Partner Program
Our award-winning Go Forward! Partner Program offers Partners unique opportunities for both top and bottom line revenue growth with an industry-leading portfolio that sets you apart from the competition.
The Go Forward! Partner program has been established to recognize the investments Partners have made in supporting their end customers. The requirements for membership are straightforward and the investment required to become accredited is among the lowest in the industry. And it is designed to make doing business with Siemens Enterprise Communications easier and accelerate Partner success.
The entry point to the Go Forward! Partner program is the Registered Reseller Partner level, which provides a company with access to the resources needed to begin selling Siemens Enterprise Communications solutions. When they are ready, Registered Resellers can begin the approval process to achieve full Go Forward! Approved Partner status.
We also recognize that different types of organizations bring different business value, areas of expertise and opportunities to our mutual customers. For this reason, our Go Forward! Partner program provides three distinct types of engagements:
- Approved Partners - These organizations (resellers) sell, implement and support Siemens Enterprise Communications solutions in geographies, industries and markets around the world. Our resellers range in size from single-site value-added resellers (VARs) to multinational System Integrators that provide a full range of IT and communications products and services.
- Distribution Partners - Siemens Enterprise Communications´ Approved Distributors purchase solutions directly from Siemens Enterprise Communications for resale to Approved Partners and others within defined countries. Value-added services vary by Approved Distributor, but typically include credit, marketing and pre- and post-sales support that enable Partners to meet their customers’ business challenges.
- Alliance Partners - These organizations are Siemens Enterprise Communications’ industry peers; they work with us to customize, integrate, and bring joint and co-branded solutions to market. This group includes many of the largest IT service providers and telecommunication carriers in the world such as AT&T, British Telecom (BT), Deutsche Telekom, Telefonica and Verizon.
