Sydney CRM vendor targets NZ resellers

Australian Customer Relationship Management software company, Tall Emu CRM has today launched a two-tier partner program to recruit resellers and affiliates across New Zealand.

Australian Customer Relationship Management software company, Tall Emu CRM has today launched a two-tier partner program to recruit resellers and affiliates across New Zealand.

Running in parallel with Australian operations, the CRM firm aims to provide its customer sales and marketing platform to the small to medium sized businesses it is designed for, many of whom are in regional or remote areas.

“We’re currently working directly with most of our clients," says Mike Nash, CEO, Tall Emu, "but given their large geographic spread, that tend to want boots on the ground, we really need to work with specialist partners and support them with our formal partner program.

“We have identified that our potential resellers want to establish a formal partner relationship, where they can achieve greater rewards and our new partner program delivers extremely generous commissions.

"They may specialise in a particular industry or region, but the benefit is that they know and understand the requirements of a small to medium sized business and what makes them tick.”

Nash says that with its new partner program, Tall Emu’s partner proposition is "crystal clear".

“We provide the platform and technology infrastructure and then we support our resellers all the way through the customer qualification and provisioning stages," he explains, "and of course if they want they can offer their additional services such as integration, customisation and training.”

Tall Emu’s partner program and the channel-centric restructure of the business is intended to recruit 20 quality technology resellers over the course of 2015 as well as a number of affiliates, including accounting firms, business consultancies and digital marketing agencies.

Kiwi resellers will be offered training on the Tall Emu CRM products and services as well as "generous commissions" of 20 per cent to affiliates who simply refer business and substantially more to resellers to sell licences for its CRM system.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
