Partner Onboarding Done Right: Creating a Scalable Ecosystem Model
Webinar Presented through: Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals
Recorded: Thursday, April 30 at 12:00-1:00 PM ET
The contract has been signed and the kick-off is scheduled – now what? The partner onboarding process is oftentimes the "make or break" moment in alliance partner relationships. Watch to discover how Ultimate Software transformed their partner ecosystem by standardizing their partner onboarding through repeatable, measurable templates that allow for scalable growth. By optimizing this process, they were able to gain insights into their entire partner portfolio, identify which partners were at risk or tracking behind on goals, and enhance their partner experience.
This webinar will included an overview of best practices implemented as well as tools and tactics to use for improving your own partner onboarding process. While each alliance program is unique, you'll leave with actionable techniques to:
Improve your go-live date predictions through trackable processes which improve forecasting
Gain insight into how to assess your current process and optimize through standardization
Set benchmarks and collect data across your portfolio to measure progress and improve transparency to key stakeholders
