New York City, NY (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
Having succeeded at connecting partners and businesses all over Europe, Channelplace is proud to announce the American Beta of their Partner Networking Platform.
The platform, which connects partner focused companies with other companies in the IT and High Tech industries, is a first of its kind in the US. With advanced algorithms and proprietary technology, ChannelPlace ensures that businesses are able to find and connect with other companies that will directly impact their bottom line.
Volker Wiora, CEO of wiora Ventures, a think tank based in Germany, is the proud visionary behind Channelplace.
“Having worked with channel partners for over 20 years, I saw a need in the market for a networking tool – like a match.com for businesses - that allowed companies that could help each other in their partner channel to find each other and provide introductions.” Mr. Wiora continues, “Channelplace allows companies to create profiles, establish parameters around who they are looking to partner with, and then our algorithms match them with the ideal potential partners.”
While Channelplace is new in the US, there have already been US based customers utilizing the service. James Kilgour, Worldwide Director of Global Channel Programs at LANDesk Software, offers this endorsement.
“LANDesk trusts and values Channelplace as a key part of our go-to-market strategy. It is the backbone of our multi-brand partner enablement portal that helps us accelerate our channels’ adoption of our User-Centric IT initiative.”
Currently, Channelplace is accepting early adopter signups through their website at http://www.channelplace.net. Early adopters currently benefit from an extended 90 day trial period.
Channelplace is a unique service that combines a business match-making algorithm with a structured business engagement process. This combination saves businesses valuable time, allowing companies to find and engage with new partners as well as stay in touch with their existing business network.
