Impartner Business Planning Levels Up Partner Experience

Impartner, a global pure-play leader in SaaS-based channel management and partner relationship management (PRM), launched Impartner Business Planning within its PRM — scaling your channel and engaging partners. Impartner Business Planning accelerates revenue in your entire channel.

Impartner Business Planning ends managers’ dreading the quarterly business reviews (QBRs) with their partner channel. The increased collaboration, transparency, and automation help companies create business plans with all segments of partners — maximizing the productivity of the largest ones and fully engaging the smallest.

“Business planning with partners is no longer a check-off item or something to dread,” said Gary Sabin, VP of Product at Impartner. “Impartner brings more accountability into the process through collaboration — not top-down micro-management — making partner planning meetings more productive, more fulfilling and even more enjoyable with the end result being increased revenue.”

Impartner Business Planning motivates and manages partners with clear performance measures and objectives, enhancing the overall partner experience. Most companies perform business planning through spreadsheet applications and one-off systems, which impacts partner experience.

Today, partners decide with whom they want to do business based on the experience they receive, especially compared to competitors. Business Planning provides a competitive advantage in partner experience.

Impartner Business Planning provides better collaboration with partners. It works with any CRM system. Channel managers can drag and drop pre-built metrics using standard objectives or build their own based on the partners’ business. They also also establish two-way communication of these metrics with message threads, templated plans for different levels of partners and automated instructions.

Business Planning provides easy access to current performance measures and attainment status. The system displays progress updates and tracks the history of business plan details. Business Planning extends the value of Impartner’s Journey Builder, Program Compliance Manager and MDF applications by tracking and displaying the progress of journeys, tier badges and percent of MDF funds used.

The product helps customers achieve more revenue with all levels of partners. It allows customers to deepen relationships and the effectiveness of the top-performing partners, but it also engages the smallest, lower-tier partners. With new partners, channel chiefs can track metrics like lead distribution, deal conversion and revenue targets and set goals for channel certification completion.

Business Planning is available in Impartner PRM for all customers now.
