IFS recently announced the appointment of Gabrielle Deeny as Global Head of Alliances and Channels to spearhead the growth and expand the reach of the IFS Partner Network. Gabrielle has a strong international business background and experience of successfully leading alliances in both large and specialist companies. This gives her a great perspective on what needs to be in place for organizations within the partner ecosystem to be successful in this time of technology disruption. Here she gives her thoughts on the IFS Global Partner Network.
This is an exciting time to join IFS. The extension of our portfolio of solutions through recent acquisitions and the establishment of a new leadership team all point toward the accelerated growth of the organization. IFS is already a leader in driving business change and helping customers on their digital transformation journey, and now this focus on collaboration with its global network of partners is creating fantastic opportunities to explore new innovations.
There is very real competitive pressure on businesses to improve their processes and systems to stay ahead of the digital disruption, but not all businesses and organizations are digital masters. Digital transformation is creating the chance to become leaner through streamlined operations, get smarter with more effective data analysis and work faster with mobile, real-time technology and cloud. But this means seizing these opportunities, and this is where the IFS Partner Network steps in.
Join the IFS Partner Network and deliver customers the transformation they need
Transforming organizations, processes, systems are core strengths of IFS and through its Partner Network, IFS works diligently to foster relationships that specialize in the development and integration of effective industry solutions for joint customers across the globe.
When it comes to providing best practices, industry focus and customer lead products, no-one knows how to do it better than we do. This is one of the reasons why CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the IFS Partner Network a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide.
IFS continued investment is designed to optimize program performance as well as develop and support the strategic alliances that deliver successful customer engagements.
Whether through big data & analytics, asset management, mobility, cloud or IoT, IFS and its partners are building relationships, reinventing business models, creating or re-thinking value propositions and providing leadership and guidance. Whatever your business skills, IFS has made sure we can offer you the right partnership:
- Service Partners – management consultancies, system integrators, consulting houses, contractors and support organizations. They enhance and expand the ability to ensure maximum benefit from an instance of IFS Applications and related products.
- Solutions Partners – Independent software vendors (ISV), outsourcing, technology, infrastructure organizations, or IoT. These companies provide infrastructure, and/or software which complement the software capabilities offered by IFS, and allow for network connectivity.
- Channel Partners – these partners distribute IFS Applications, typically in geographies where IFS has limited direct presence.
- Referral Partners – industry and local market insiders who alert IFS to pending opportunities and have specific connections and knowledge. Open to existing IFS partners or those simply in a position to refer new customers to IFS.
