TreeHouse Interactive Introduces White Paper by Research Firm CSO Insights on Optimizing Channel Partner Sales Effectiveness

TreeHouse Interactive™, the technology leader in SaaS-based partner relationship management (PRM) and marketing automation platform (MAP) solutions, today introduced a white paper entitled Optimizing Channel Partner Sales Effectiveness, produced by research firm CSO Insights. The paper, available for download from the TreeHouse website, highlights sales challenges channel partners face, offers best practices for maximizing their sales performance, and provides case study examples of how organizations are using PRM technology to help their partners achieve business success. A recently recorded companion webinar featuring the paper's author, Jim Dickie, managing partner at CSO Insights, is also available for download by TreeHouse Interactive. The webinar was the first in a series themed "The Channel Marketer's Toolbox."

From its 20th annual Sales Performance Optimization study, CSO Insights found that nearly 95 percent of more than 1,200 sales executives polled raised their revenue objectives for 2014, and many of them are looking to meet these higher sales goals by selling increasingly more through channel partners.

"Partners can be a great resource for providing faster time to market, vertical market expertise and/or extended geographic sales coverage, " according to Dickie. "So, it is not surprising to see more interest focused on selling through channels. However, in today’s challenging sales environment, it is becoming clear that companies need to understand their sales 'in' from partners is a result of their partners' sales 'out.' In other words, vendors aren't successful unless their partners are."

Optimizing Channel Partner Sales Effectiveness identifies the key challenges impacting channel partner sales effectiveness, and explains how leveraging process, technology, and knowledge can make it easier for channel partners to sell vendors' products or services. The paper and companion webinar both offer real world examples of companies who have implemented solutions to maximize partner sales effectiveness. Some of the results include increases of: opportunity registration by 25 percent; partner portal participation rate by 41 percent and 12,000 file downloads; and three-fold increase in the number of market development funds requested.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
