Reading, England, 14 January 2013
Workbooks.com, the fastest growing provider of web-based CRM and business applications in the UK, today announced that Blended Systems has signed up as a Workbooks resale partner. Blended Systems, a specialist solutions reseller based in Atlanta, USA, will sell the Workbooks cloud based CRM solution to customers in the USA and Canada.
Ian Moyse, Sales Director at Workbooks commented “We are continuing to rapidly expand our partner base to reach customers in other regions where we do not have our own presence. As our profile grows and we get an increasingly number of enquiries from prospects across the globe, it makes sense to have local partners who can assist customers in their region with the licensing of Workbooks as well as configuration of the service.”
Workbooks already has a strong customer base in the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa and China, with recent USA and Canadian customer signings including 4CastPlus and CloudAccess. Workbooks is nearing the launch of a new partner program structure which promises to offer simplicity, good margin opportunities and easy engagement for a wide range of resellers, ranging from specialist CRM resellers down to those only wanting a referral fee.
Bob Stevens, President, Blended Systems commented “As a cloud focused reseller we look for innovative solutions that deliver rapid return on investment and business benefit to our clients. We are now using Workbooks in house, having migrated from Zoho (which was easy) and find it intuitive, flexible and powerful in capability. We already have a healthy pipeline of customer opportunities supported by many that Workbooks has passed to us to work with.”
Moyse expanded “We continue to seek further resale partners who take a solutions led selling approach and are capable of stepping up to deliver local configuration services. We are enabling reseller parties to make margin on the resale of our licensed service as well as to deliver and bill the configuration services around the technology, enabling the channel to make good margins from a cloud only solution!”
The Blended Systems announcement follows the announcement made in December that Workbooks had signed CRMOnline as a Master Partner in the UK.
