Reading, England, 07 February 2013

Broadcoast, a specialist reseller of cloud-based business technologies, has signed up as a Workbooks.com resale partner. The Workbooks cloud based CRM solution will be sold through Broadcoast to customers in Australia and New Zealand.

Ian Moyse, Sales Director at Workbooks commented, “We continue to have enquiries from around the world for our cloud-based CRM service. The partnership with Broadcoast will expand our reach and customer base in a new region and as a cloud committed company they are an ideal partner to represent us there.”

Trevor Townsend, Director at Broadcoast commented, “Not only will we resell the Workbooks solution, but we have also adopted it in house as the foundation of our business. As an experienced team we looked for an easy-to-use cloud based CRM that would enable us to easily manage all our opportunities and give our dispersed team the ability to work together effectively. Workbooks gives us this and more. Workbooks provides customers with a wide range of functionality at an affordable cost and as such we believe it is a key offering for the small to medium business compared to more expensive CRM offerings.”

The Workbooks partner base continues to grow at a rapid rate and the Broadcoast announcement follows an announcement earlier this month that Blended Systems will be a resale partner in the USA and Canada. Moyse expanded, “We are seeing an increase in the number of partnership enquiries we receive as resellers realise the opportunity to make margin on both license and service sales in a lucrative growing area of the cloud market; Internet based CRM.”

According to Gartner, worldwide CRM software revenue hit $12bn in 2011, a 13.5% increase from 2010, and was forecasted to grow 7% by the end of 2012. Recent research from Forrester supports this trend, with figures showing that nearly 70% of organisations are now using, or interested in implementing, Cloud-based CRM solutions.
