Based on 15 years channel experience, Channel Surveyor is to be a preeminent provider of partner recruitment services and consulting across EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa.)
Our mission is three-fold: to stay on the forefront of recruitment technologies so that we always offer the best available solutions to our clients; to be thought leaders so that where challenges exist we can propose viable solutions—not just for ourselves but, as we have done before, for the entire Hi-Tech industry; and lastly, to create enduring relationships of trust so that our clients can relax in the knowledge that they can rely on Channel Surveyor to bring them the talent, technologies, and solutions they need in order to grow and thrive.
We know that different industries require different factors. Our recruitment agency matches partners to positions in a careful and calibrated way. This is done by both outbound cold-calling and internet research.
It’s important to know different industry landscapes and no one knows them better than we do. Recruiting for the software industry is different than recruiting for the technology industry, which is also very different than recruiting for the supply chain and logistics industry. It’s vital to understand what specific industry factors are—the languages they speak, the expectations, the constraints within which they operate— and be sensitive to the qualities of each company’s culture at the same time. As an example, Google is situated in the IT industry and it looks for playfulness, initiative, and inventiveness in its candidates. Those qualities may be perfect for Google, but pose a serious risk in the Security Industry. Trust in our knowledge and experience to find you an exceptional technical and cultural fit every time.
For too many organizations, a great divide persists between marketing and sales. This has been a persistent problem for decades, resulting in inefficient use of company resources, lethargic product launches, low levels of cross-selling and up-selling, reduced customer loyalty, increased customer churn rates, higher operating costs and lower profit margins.
How much marketing funds do you waste on partners that are not performing or do not fit your current goals?
Vendors, ISV’s and distributors in general have a excellent understanding of their managed partners.
For unmanaged partners that often is a lot different. The information is poorly maintained or simply outdated. New high potential partners are rarely identified at an early stage. The potential of these partners may not be recognized and marketing euro’s are spend to maintain non-performing partners.
The Unmanaged Partner program contains these elements:
· Database update: Update your partner data with our up-to-date database and fix the differences
