WorkSpan, a disruptor in sales partnership ecosystems, is excited to announce that we were selected by Gartner as a 2019 Cool Vendor in their Channel and Sales Enablement Support report.

It’s thrilling to be considered a Gartner Cool Vendor, and this honor is just a further reflection of how we are achieving our mission to connect businesses with trusted partners so they can find value and abundance together.

As our VP of Marketing at Workspan, Chip Rodgers, says:

“We are honored and humbled by the recognition and very excited about what it means for our customers, and growth of the WorkSpan Ecosystem Cloud network.”

McKinsey estimates that digital ecosystems will account for more than $60 trillion in revenues by 2025.  With that enormous opportunity out there for the taking, it’s imperative that organizations prepare today by engaging with ecosystem partners by leveraging a flexible, robust system to manage their partnerships and ecosystems.

WorkSpan has completely reimagined how companies go to market together. For the first time, with the WorkSpan Ecosystem Cloud, alliance and ecosystem leaders are finally able to build, market, and sell with their ecosystem partners in a single, secure, cloud-based network.

WorkSpan makes it easy to work across partner types and partner tiers to grow ecosystem value by driving joint revenue, entering new markets, accelerating time-to-market, innovating on new solutions to meet shared customer needs and developing trust across company boundaries.

In today’s sales and marketing environment, having an innovative solution to foster channel relationships puts businesses ahead of the competition. By eliminating traditional roadblocks to sharing assets and data, partners can work together seamlessly on what matters―driving results for their businesses.

Qualitatively demonstrating value with a constant, easy-to-manage flow of information and data is key to managing these partnerships effectively.
