JAGGAER Launches New Global Partner Program to Accelerate Customers’ Time to Value

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – June 28, 2016 – JAGGAER, the leading public provider of spend management solutions delivering value beyond savings, today announced the rollout of the JAGGAER Select Partner Program. Designed to recognize spend management and eProcurement expertise, the program offers qualified partners the opportunity to receive implementation certification, as well as resell, integrate, extend, develop and provide services around JAGGAER technology. Customers will benefit with access to certified expertise that will ultimately speed time to value and extend the value of the JAGGAER Source-to-Pay technology.

“JAGGAER has a strong potential to build an expanded partnership ecosystem,” said Jason Busch, Spend Matters founder and head of strategy. “The new Select Partner program should help foster an ecosystem that will benefit JAGGAER customers by providing greater choice and flexibility across a range of areas, from implementation support to complementary technologies.”

JAGGAER Select Partner enables partners to deliver customers value beyond savings through shared innovation and world-class source-to-settle solutions. The four partner models offered within JAGGAER’s Select Partner program are designed to best match the needs and go-to-market approaches of partners:

  • Services Partners: As a Certified Services Partner, businesses that consult, integrate, outsource and implement will take the lead role in deploying JAGGAER software while developing or enhancing its own spend management practices and solution competencies.
  • Reseller Partners: The program offers training, collaboration on joint go-to-market strategies and support for sales to those partners that wish to market and sell JAGGAER solutions in conjunction with existing offerings.
  • Teaming Partners: Geared toward businesses that want to introduce, market and promote the leading integrated S2S solutions to their customers, JAGGAER Teaming Partners engage and explore the potential for joint marketing and selling opportunities.
  • Technology Partners: JAGGAER integrates with and leverages a wide range of Technology Partners to extend functionality and offer customers complimentary capabilities. JAGGAER Technology Partners accelerate innovation, deliver complementary solutions and provide infrastructure-related services that enhance the JAGGAER Source-to-Settle Platform.

“We are building an ecosystem of high impact partners that share our passion for driving procurement value beyond savings,” said Pete Plotas, vice president of global alliances at JAGGAER. “The Select Partner Program demonstrates our commitment to delivering a benefits-rich program to partners with the resources they need to increase their revenues, expand their offerings and foster collaboration with JAGGAER to attract new business for everyone.”

JAGGAER has also announced that The Hackett Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: HCKT) has been named one of their initial Select Partner Partners. “The Hackett Group is proud to work with JAGGAER through this program.
