Here, we’ll answer the hottest questions about partnership with technology companies and talk about the NNTC partnership program in simple words. Everything you wanted to know but did not dare to ask.
Why partnering with technology and innovation companies?
Creating value for customers is a must-do in the business world. Sometimes a customer wants to have a new idea implemented, which requires more development effort and fast action. This makes partnerships valuable, especially when you have partner developers ready to pack and deliver everything on demand.
Smaller companies also benefit from partnerships with technology companies. Partnership opens the door to larger resources: marketing, sales, legal, technology, and HR support. A vast selection of out-of-the-box products – even if made by partners only – gives a company a strong competitive edge in a crowded market.
What is more, infrastructure solutions are increasingly harder to sell to end customers. However, when they combine with a partner’s ready-to-use service they bring value to both IT director and business users.
How does it affect the partners’ business?
Partnership gives access to numerous resources that allow your company to enrich its business portfolio. Besides products and services, partnerships contribute to networking among business peers, thus feeding your market power. Partnerships lavish private events, innovation presentations or access to particularly valuable documents on its members. Remember though, that your business will experience positive effect if a partnership is aligned with your company’s strategic goals. Interestingly, there are companies using artificial intelligence to identify the most beneficial business partners.
