What a year for Brocade Channel partners so far. Brocade launched its enhanced Alliance Partner Program (APN) with a firework of benefits for partners and a massive focus on bringing profitability to its partners. Now just in time for the holidays, we have another goody in the bag for partners and are launching a new and enhanced online portal for partners. Called MyBrocade, the new portal will give partners broader access to resources and information. With this tool, partners will now have the ability to manage and track their partnership with Brocade online.
From my usual "Listen and Learn" exercise, we utilized feedback from our Partner Councils conducted throughout the year and set out to provide online tools that provide a one-stop-shop for Brocade Channel partners. A few of these new features are:
Customizable pages that allow you to tailor your online experience and receive only the information you want
The ability to connect with your peers and Brocade to stay current with Brocade technology and industry trends and to share ideas and learn from each others’ experiences
Feature-rich modules that can help you track and manage your programs, such as deal registration
In this challenging business climate, it becomes especially crucial for business partners managing multiple vendor relationships and programs to readily have access to resources and information in a flexible and customizable format. With the new portal, partners now have the power to decide what sort of information they want to receive and when. You already know the core value and philosophy of Brocade is choice – and choice is what we also want to give Brocade partners in their portal experience. You can basically tailor your information flow to your needs and requirements.
Keep your eyes open for new exciting features to come – we will be populating the portal over the next year with more and more features to give you the ultimate partner experience. Check it out!
