Open Text to restructure partner programme

Enterprise content management specialist Open Text is set to refresh its partner programme, with a major overhaul of the website portal.

On a recent visit to New Zealand, recently appointed trans-Tasman channel alliances and partners manager Chris Petersen says partner tiers would also be introduced in the revamp, set down for 1 July.

“There’s all the information needed for looking at the products for the first time, what the product does and who the key competitors are,” Petersen says. It will also have more marketing resources and information to support proposals and requests for tenders.

Petersen says he used his visit to re-affirm the relationship with local partner Techtonics in the wake of Open Text’s acquisition of fellow ECM software provider Hummingbird in late 2006.

Australia and New Zealand are Open Text’s focus as it re-invests in the wider region, he says.
