This is especially true given the current market conditions where many companies are pushing their technology to the limit of the hardware lifecycle and beyond on shoestring and bubble gum budgets.
Reston, VA (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
CorasWorks Corporation, a leading provider of software that makes it easier to develop applications on Microsoft SharePoint, today announced that it has enhanced its Partner Program to add significant competitive advantages for its partners.
The program enhancements include new product packages and pricing structures that will make it easier for partners to include CorasWorks in their SharePoint engagements and custom solutions, additional marketing programs that provide more exposure to the partners and their applications, and a new offering within its Partner Program for Application Publishers.
"We value our partners tremendously and embrace the significant contribution they make to the success of our mutual clients," said Darryl Eadi, Director of Partner Channels at CorasWorks. "I am delighted to release a completely overhauled portfolio of offerings and pricings, directly in response to and driven by what our partners have asked for. We have invested heavily and are now delivering the next generation of CorasWorks to them. Our drivers were to increase their competitive advantage in the marketplace and do everything we can to help further the success of their SharePoint practice with CorasWorks."
Two weeks ago, CorasWorks announced new packaging and pricing structures for its SharePoint-related products. The new AppEngine for SharePoint, combined with a new pricing structure for both the CorasWorks Workplace Suite and the Data Integration Toolset, offer CorasWorks partners both an unprecedented new product for the SharePoint platform, along with more competitive price points to leverage the CorasWorks technologies in their SharePoint-based engagements and custom-built applications.
The packages and pricing provide more flexibility in licensing options and gives CorasWorks partners the competitive advantage they've wanted to enhance their SharePoint business. Under the new pricing, the AppEngine for SharePoint lists for $4,000 for the first server. The CorasWorks Workplace Suite and the Data Integration Toolset each now list for $10,000. Both products can be bundled and purchased for a single server for just $15,000. This pricing is available only to private-sector organizations with less than 10,000 employees.
"We are very pleased to see the new product packages and pricing structures from CorasWorks," said Lee T. Cahill, General Manager at NGenious Solutions, Inc. "We approach all assignments with an investment bias and work with the client to define a measureable payback. The new packages and pricing will allow us to achieve a quicker payback for all of our customers, offering us a significant competitive advantage. As a result, we'll definitely expose CorasWorks to a wider universe of potential clients."
"The new price point of $10,000 for the full product and the add-on cost of $5,000 for external data integration is perfect for the small to medium-size business model," said Christopher M. Rinehart, a systems integrator with Portal Dynamics. "This is especially true given the current market conditions where many companies are pushing their technology to the limit of the hardware lifecycle and beyond on shoestring and bubble gum budgets."
CorasWorks also recently announced its new App Store and plug-and-play applications for the SharePoint platform (http://community.corasworks.net/appshome.aspx). Its Application Publisher program provides a complete and integrated process for building, publishing and distributing business applications and processes, powered by CorasWorks. The App Store provides significant exposure for the partners and their solutions and also allows them market their apps and services without incurring the traditional additional expenses of taking them to market.
"We think the concept of an App Store for SharePoint is a great idea," said Hal Hayes, SharePoint Practice Lead at Buchanan & Edwards. "We especially like the idea of Buchanan & Edwards developing an application for the store as a way of showing our technical prowess, and then having CorasWorks drive traffic to the App Store and our application specifically. This is fantastic exposure for our app and for our overall SharePoint practice to the SharePoint market."
