Vancouver, Canada (PRESS RELEASE – June 17, 2009) – Constructive, the leading provider of online partner community solutions, today announced the availability of Partnerpedia Private Networks, which enables companies to create a privately branded online community for its network of channel and solution partners. Companies can now leverage the power of social networking and online media to maximize business through partner-to-partner collaboration, social networking and channel enablement.
Partnerpedia Private Networks is an addition to the previously announced Partnerpedia Open Community, which is a free online service for all vendors and partners, as well as end-user companies. With Private Networks, enterprises can now maintain brand consistency across their partner community, control how content is managed and distributed to enable the channel, and allow its partners to easily collaborate with one another to accelerate business. Private Networks also offers additional features such as content filtering, reporting and metrics, and custom integration with business systems.
Using Private Networks, companies now have a cost-effective way to fully engage all of their partners by providing a forum for partner discovery and networking, and collaboration tools to effectively interact on joint customer solutions. In addition, Private Networks allows companies to better organize and distribute content and resources to partners, and provides visibility to the effectiveness of the community and resources.
“Partner-to-partner collaboration and social networking are already happening, although often driven at a grass roots level,” said Michael Fauscette, group vice president of software business solutions for IDC. “The difference is whether you as an enterprise are proactively engaging your partners in a collaborative fashion, if not, you run the risk of being left behind. Partnerpedia Private Networks is a great way for companies to maintain strong brand affiliation while gaining visibility to and maximizing the effectiveness of their partner community.”
“With sales through indirect channels increasing at an exponential rate, it is more critical than ever to fully enable your entire network of channel and solution partners, and not only the top producers,” said Mark Sochan, CEO of Constructive. “Constructive has been working with companies to deliver partner enablement solutions for over 10 years now. With our expertise and the power of social media, Partnerpedia Private Networks is designed to help companies maximize business through partners while reinforcing their company brand.”
