Rocket.Chat, the leading open-source communication hub, is announcing the release of Catalyst, its new partner program that consolidates all the assets needed to accelerate growth of new and existing partners across the globe.
“Since the beginning we have been working in close collaboration with service and technology providers to deliver increased value to our customers, which naturally led us to clearly understand the key aspects needed to support our partners’ growth throughout their journey and ultimately leverage their ROI through our partnership. Rocket.Chat’s Catalyst materializes these learnings into a journey-based program that will support companies of all sizes that target the same market and want to establish a results-driven, long-lasting relationship with Rocket.Chat,” said Julio Azzini, Global Head of Partnerships at Rocket.Chat.
The pandemic forced businesses around the globe to abruptly adopt the remote work environment, on a never-before-seen scale. This presented a unique opportunity for Rocket.Chat, helping to boost the company’s hyper growth – a trend that is set to continue as evidence mounts that the remote work momentum will not fade away for the foreseeable future. As an open-source business, Rocket.Chat benefits from a strong global footprint across different sectors that, combined with its recent Series A funding round, will accelerate growth and create opportunities for both Rocket.Chat and its partner ecosystem.
“The investment we made to revamp our existing (partner) program reinforces our commitment to our partners and ultimately, to our customers, to better serve them at a local level and on a global scale. Our partner ecosystem plays a crucial role in our go-to-market strategy,” shared Gabriel Engel, co-founder and CEO of Rocket.Chat. “Partners act as our service arm because they are the ones who are implementing strategic projects, scaling our apps and setting up the integrations that enable our customers to personalize and make the most of their Rocket.Chat experience.”
The new program encompasses a self-paced, scalable onboarding process that enables all key roles within a partner organization to sell and deliver projects through the Rocket.Chat partner portal. The robust capabilities of the program increase collaboration between internal teams and external providers to better manage the partner experience and overall journey while working within Rocket.Chat.
“We decided to implement the same training that we provide to our internal team to our partners. We see our partner relationships as a critical part of our company, rather than just a go-to-market channel. On top of all improvements made we have hired a very talented and competent group of professionals, now outfitted with the assets they need to ensure that we are taking our partner program — and ultimately our partnerships — to the next level,” added Azzini.
The new partner program operates across three tiers that are organized based on the overall capabilities and contributions of partners across all types of business models. For more information, please visit: www.Rocket.Chat/partners
