Reston, VA (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Canvas today announced a global partner program that enables resellers and content partners to capitalize on businesses’ increasingly mobile workforces by leveraging the Canvas cloud-based mobile business app platform to convert any paper form into a dynamic, feature-rich and customizable mobile app.
The average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper per year, exacting a heavy financial and productivity toll on Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) – as well as larger enterprises – across a broad range of industries and countries. The Canvas Partner Program offers resellers an opportunity to augment their portfolio of services and earn recurring revenues with Canvas’ feature-rich mobile business app platform. Additionally, any reseller or content partner with mobile forms can launch their own co-branded application store on Canvas’ site, and earn recurring commissions.
Canvas’ cloud-based software service is an easy, fast and economical way for businesses to find, customize and create mobile forms to replace paper forms. Canvas also offers the first mobile business application store of its kind, with more than 13,000 apps, providing a one-stop shop for businesses in any country to find mobile forms to meet their specific business and geographic needs.
The Canvas partner program offers several unique benefits to traditional IT and industry-specific resellers, such as those targeting construction firms with onerous safety and risk management forms requirements. Additionally, any organization with content and paper-based processes can leverage the program to convert this content to dynamic, feature-rich mobile forms. Key benefits of the Canvas partner program include:
- Dedicated 1x1 support throughout the process – Becoming a Canvas reseller or content partner begins with the potential partner completing an online application. A Canvas representative then contacts the organization to assess fit. If approved, the Canvas rep will work with the new partner at every step of the process – whether the goal is to resell Canvas’ service or set up a co-branded application store.
- Ability to offer feature-rich mobile forms – With Canvas, resellers can offer mobile forms with a rich array of features, including e-signature capture, GPS, worker dispatching, customized mobile form building and editing, image capture, barcode scanning, API integration and data output formatting.
- Ability to create a co-branded application store – Any organization that produces content and forms can create their own co-branded application store on Canvas’ site, and earn recurring commissions.
Program launch partners include IT firms whose clients are requesting mobile data collection solutions, software companies looking for a front-end mobile data solution, as well as health and safety consultancies that focus on the construction industry. Other launch partners include publishers, printing companies and content suppliers that see value in converting an avalanche of paper forms into more efficient mobile apps.
“For our customer base of small and medium sized businesses needing to comply with an array of legal and compliance obligations, paperwork has become an all-too-consuming and costly aspect of their operations,” said Martin Denny, chief executive officer, Safety-Link Consulting, a Castleblayney, Ireland based risk assessment consultancy. “By joining the Canvas partner program, we were able to quickly set up a co-branded application store where businesses can download our huge selection of health and safety apps that replace their paper forms – and we earn recurring commissions.”
“Our program partners will be uniquely positioned for new revenue opportunities by taking businesses mobile, but what is even more powerful is that any organization that produces content and forms can earn commissions by promoting mobile forms they create to other businesses,” said Michael Benedict, vice president, application store, Canvas. “For example, a consultant to the energy industry could convert their safety checklists into mobile forms, and then earn revenue when their mobile form is downloaded.”
