Taking distribution of its premier content and workflow management solutions one step further, etfile launched a new sales engagement program to bring its award-winning solution to the reseller channel. The etfile-ENGAGED (E2) Partner Program is built on years of engagement with customers and partners to help resellers recognize new recurring revenue streams with the power of etfile.
In its annual report on the "Digital Universe" of information, industry analyst firm IDC estimates more than 40 zettabytes of data by 2020. As companies attempt to capture, store, file, and manage this data, the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market presents significant opportunities for resellers. Gartner Group reports the ECM sector will grow almost 12 percent CAGR through 2015.
"For years, etfile has helped customers realize new levels of efficiency, cost-savings and productivity through our direct sales program," said Mark Linton, President, etfile. "With that in mind, we realized a unique opportunity to expose our technology to a broader range of customers via committed resellers. The etfile E2 program is designed to do just that."
etfile's flagship product is a modular suite of capture, distribution, process management, and integration tools. The portfolio includes scalable client/server and cloud-based content management and automated workflow for enterprises and small-to-medium businesses across all industries. Helping organizations harness the power and ease-of-use of cloud for Web-based file sharing, online collaboration, automated workflows, and advanced analytics — etfile's strategic partnerships with leading automation vendors ensure solutions are in full compliance with the latest industry standards for compatibility and security.
Etfile E2 is based on real-world engagement with the channel. The program addresses the most difficult challenges facing ECM channel sales, offering resellers the technology and support to grow their business, drive customer satisfaction, and maximize profitability.
