Saying Goodbye to the Sage Advocate Program – What’s Next for Smaller Sage Resellers

By: | Category: ERP

Sage recently announced that the Sage Advocate program will officially end on October 21, 2020.  For smaller Sage resellers this is just the latest addition to what is already a perfect storm of challenges in the industry – all within a pandemic that has brought sweeping change in the global business environment. 

These evolving market conditions have caused many Sage resellers to revisit their business plans, strategy and timelines, and partners are turning to the Net at Work Alliance Program for options and solutions.

Since its launch in 2013, under the leadership of Tom Miller, the Partner Alliance Program has grown to include a community of 200 partners; 45 are Sage resellers and 20 of those are members of the Sage Advocate Program. A recent survey of the Net at Work Alliance partners indicated that 85% of our partners are satisfied with the program, including 100% of our Sage Advocate partners.  

Here are a few examples of partner comments captured in the recent survey: 

“I like being able to expand our ability to find solutions for clients when we do not internally possess the skillset to do so. I also appreciate the referrals to our firm when we are able to provide a skillset” 

“The people are great as is the value to my customers, and the program has had a positive financial impact on my business”

“We’re heading into our third year in the program and it has been a huge help” 

The Net at Work Alliance Program offers options to Sage partners based on their needs and where they are in their company lifecycle.  Whether it is our reseller program, a purchase of the customer base or a full merger and acquisition conversation, we always meet our partners at their point of business inflection and maximize the value of their business.

We are committed to working with partners in turning today’s challenges into opportunities, enabling you to unleash the power of your business and better serve your clients today and well into the future.  For more information please visit us at www.netatwork.com/alliance/ or email me directly at irabonovich@netatwork.com.
