(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider and SaaSMAX Corp. today announced a strategic marketing alliance, providing a new marketing and distribution channel option to Artisan’s SaaS/Cloud App partners. SaaSMAX is the ultimate value-add SaaS Marketplace and Marketing System that provides a unique solution to B2B SaaS and Cloud Application companies who want to accelerate their reseller recruitment, reseller marketing and partner enablement strategies.
Artisan Infrastructure will add SaaSMAX to its Certified SaaS Provider Ecosystem further enhancing its efforts to provide additional revenue channels for current and future SaaS and Cloud Application provider clients. As the first solution ecosystem of its kind, designed to facilitate a direct relationship between Service Providers and ISVs, the Artisan Certified SaaS Ecosystem expedites the selection, adoption, and deployment of cloud-based solutions already certified to perform on Cornerstone℠, Artisan Infrastructure’s wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service. Through its partnership with SaaSMAX, Artisan further strengthens its commitment to connect its Certified SaaS Providers with innovative B2B Cloud Software Vendors, facilitating new Reseller Partnerships and revenue opportunities.
“Artisan chose to engage SaaSMAX in a strategic marketing alliance to present our SaaS and Cloud Application partners with the ability to control the costs for their reseller/affiliate recruitment, marketing and management,” said Jared Benson, Vice-President of Artisan Infrastructure. “Whether our SaaS and Cloud Application partners already have a dedicated channel team or not, expanding or managing a channel partner program on its own requires significant budget, time and staff. SaaSMAX makes it easy to reach new markets, get discovered, communicate reseller incentives and easily manage their channel efforts.”
“SaaSMAX is all about helping Resellers/Solution Providers discover and find reseller opportunities with innovative Cloud & SaaS solutions, and continually strives to provide efficient management of SaaS sales, commissions, customers and vendor relationships in a single place.” said Dina Moskowitz, Founder and CEO, SaaSMAX. “We are very excited and looking forward to our new relationship with Artisan Infrastructure, as they present the SaaSMAX platform to their SaaS and Cloud Application partners to build out and grow their channel partner programs.”
Building on their new alliance SaaSMAX and Artisan Infrastructure have joined forces to launch a series of immersive Webinars to help Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) gain exposure into some of the most innovative solutions in the cloud community. Additionally, SaaSMAX provides Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Cloud App developers an alternative revenue channel and increased exposure to the combined databases of the companies. The first free webinar is open to any VAR, MSP, SaaS or Cloud App provider and will take place at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Tuesday, December 17th. Click for more information and registration.
