Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2012/01/09 - Readyportal unveils Partnership Program to bring creative and tech communities together into robust, integrated eco-system to deliver high-value web solutions to B2B, B2C clients by leveraging partner expertise with Readyportal’s unique ECMS-on-SaaS.
Readyportal, the only Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS) offered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), announced the launch of an exciting new Partner Program today. Recognizing a void in the ECMS marketplace and the benefit of reducing the cost and complexity of CMS implementation for the typical business user, Readyportal created a flexible and easy to use ECMS product and pioneered its use on the pay-as-you-go, on-demand SaaS platform. The Readyportal Partnership Program is designed primarily for digital agencies, system integrators, and solution providers to:
1. Grow their business through lead generation and short sales cycles.
2. Enhance the mix of solutions to create value for their clients.
3. Expedite implementation cycles and get clients up and running quickly.
4. Network and receive increased exposure to innovation experts in the ECMS eco-system.
5. Reduce Costs by 60% for their clients compared to traditional commercial and open source software.
Rock Star Partners
Digital and advertising agencies, system integrators, and solution providers are best positioned to see and understand their client perspective: their needs, pain points, and expectations. Therefore, Readyportal’s focus has been on building an extendable and configurable software platform that is easy to use, agile, and cost-effective for Partners to create their own design, integrate with other applications, and provide custom functionality for their clients and end users. Readyportal works exclusively with channel partners whenever possible. As company Founder and Chief Executive Officer Rajiv Chatterjee says,“We want our Partners to be rock stars in front of their clients. As long as our Partners are successful, we are successful.” The Partner Program creates an environment where the partner eco-system works together to create value.
Choosing to Partner with Readyportal
Zahid Mahmood, Principal of Tenthline Inc., a leading CMS system integrator and one of the first North American Partners says about Readyportal,“No other product provides the complete package. We are used to working with the traditional ECMS development cycle of commercial and open source products, which are not easy to use, and need extensive customization and development. Readyportal is one of those products that has a short learning curve and takes a minimal amount of time to design templates. Our customers can focus on adding and updating content while letting someone else manage the infrastructure and the technology.”
SaaS for Everyone
Readyportal identified a shift in the industry where content management, once the domain of the IT department and CTOs, is today a core requirement for CMOs, executive directors, department heads, and content contributors. The ability to effect rapid change is necessary both to make an impact on clients and the market and to communicate effectively to employees and internal teams. The key is a product that delivers business results without making business people worry about technology, operations, and hosting. Readyportal’s unique ECMS-on-SaaS fills this need.
Quick and Cost-Effective
Organizations look to cloud computing for efficient business solutions that maximize results and help them achieve their goals in the most cost-effective way possible. Readyportal’s innovative ECMS-on-SaaS approach reduces implementation time by 40% to 60% compared to traditional commercial / open source software. As an added benefit, up-front costs are significantly reduced through the pay-as-you-go SaaS model. Partners and clients need not worry about license fees, hosting, support, or operations: everything is included in one cost-effective price.
