1. Why was the NetSuite SP100 Program created?
NetSuite believes in the channel, and sees solution providers (SPs) as another source to fuel our rapid growth. We see unique opportunities for channel partners to provide cloud computing solutions to their customers, and we're offering 100% margins for the first year to prove it. NetSuite provides small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) with a single integrated system—delivered in the cloud—to manage key business processes in real time, including customer relationship management (CRM), accounting/enterprise resource planning (ERP) and e-commerce. This new program is your opportunity to move your business to the cloud while earning 100% on new license business.
For more information, read the press release.
2. What do you mean by 100% margins?
Exactly that. Partners who enroll and are accepted into the program are eligible to receive 100% of the first-year subscription license revenue on new business transactions they originate.
3. Why are you adding even more benefits to the SP100 Program?
Based on a channel survey conducted by NetSuite of 100 current and prospective partners, the solution provider community emphasized the importance of channel enablement as a criterion when selecting new vendors. The SuiteStart Service was created with this feedback in mind. The combination of the SP100 financial benefits and the SuiteStart service provides new NetSuite partners with everything they need to jumpstart their NetSuite business and provide immediate value to their clients.
4. What level of services can I expect to implement with NetSuite?
You should expect to deliver all of the same services for which you'd bill during an on-premise implementation, including data conversion, business process consulting, configuration, customization, training and more. The only services you won't deliver are server and infrastructure management, as our cloud subscription includes those.
5. How does the NetSuite SP100 Program differ from the existing NetSuite Solution Provider Program?
The NetSuite SP100 Program is a superset of the NetSuite Solution Provider Program in that it offers channel partners an industry-first 100% margin on first-year license revenues for new business transactions. Recurring revenues for these wins are set at 10% for subsequent years.
6. What if thousands of partners want to sign-up for this program? Will you sign them all?
No. Not all VARs will qualify for this program, and we'll continue our long-standing policy of selective admission of only the most qualified and committed partners.
