Axcient Launches Enhanced Partner Benefit Program
Axcient has always had a partner program, but we are taking it up a notch with a tier-based system that includes new partner-focused incentives and benefits. Designed to activate MSP growth while creating Axcient advocates in the channel, the Axcient Partner Program (APP) empowers MSPs to succeed in sales and technical capabilities by enhancing operations. As an MSP-only solutions provider, this is just one more way that Axcient is proving our ongoing and evolutionary commitment to helping MSPs succeed.
Everyone Wins with Silver, Gold, and Platinum Tiers
Axcient designed our three-tier system to increase an MSP’s return on investment (ROI) towards achieving business goals faster and more efficiently. Based on compliance with program requirements and business performance metrics – specifically monthly recurring revenue (MRR) – Axcient partners can get promoted to new tiers based on biannual evaluations. Where your MSP lands is based on the previous six-month period, and the initial evaluation is based on where your MSP stands currently.
MRR must be equal to or above the following thresholds and includes revenues generated from sales of both new licenses and renewals:
- Silver: MRR > $100
- Gold: MRR > $1,000
- Platinum: MRR > $5,000
Partner Benefits by Tier
Every tier of the APP benefits Axcient partners and their growth potential with Axcient. These opportunities present new and creative ways to partner with Axcient to extend your reach and capabilities. It’s important to understand each benefit so that you and your team take advantage.
