CloudTech has garnered Elite Partner status with SugarCRM – the first Kiwi company to reach the highest tier of the CRM company’s channel programme.
The status is only awarded to the top 10% of SugarCRM’s worldwide channel programme partners. Just 23 partners made the list this year.
The status comes as SugarCRM eyes the ANZ region as a key market, in which it sees high growth opportunities.
Auckland based CloudTech is a cloud technology solutions provider which specialises in the implementation and support of cloud-based CRM and marketing automation technologies for medium to large enterprises.
Clint Oram, SugarCRM co-founder and chief technology officer, says the Elite partners delivered a solid 36% year on year increase in annually recurring subscription revenue in 2015 and added more than 350 new SugarCRM customers.
“These industry-leading partners help our customers extend the value of their Surgar investments by providing strategic CRM consulting, tailored solutions that complement Sugar, techniques for CRM best practices and flexible implementation and integration services,” Oram says.
This year’s list included companies from 16 countries, including first-timers Ireland, Mexico, Brazil, Canada and New Zealand, something SugarCRM says shows the significant market momentum the company is gaining worldwide.
“SugarCRM Elite Partners have attained the highest level of recognition in the company’s channel partner programme by building large-scale growing businesses that provide consulting, implementation, integration, training and development services for Sugar; meeting or exceeding standards for technical proficiency and professional certification in Sugar products; and demonstrating consistent success implementing Sugar in hosted, on-premises and private cloud environments,” the vendor says.
