Q: Do I get demo software? A Cloud instance? A copy to run our own business? 
A: For your own use and the learning process, you can begin with the Startup Edition on Premise, and/or a 1CRM Cloud 3-user Enterprise Edition instance. Once you reach $10K in net sales you are entitled to a 5 user Enterprise Edition instance – on Premise or Cloud as preferred.

A: You can sell the 1CRM Cloud service (monthly or annual subscriptions), or annual/monthly software licenses to be used on partner-controlled servers (Partner Cloud) or client-controlled servers (On Premise).

Q: Why should I register as a Sales or Full-Service Partner under a regional Master Partner and not under 1CRM?
A: You will get the same margin, but a great deal more assistance ramping up, by working with a regional Master Partner. And if you intend to be a Sales partner, you must work with a Master Partner or Full-Service Partner.

OEM Partnership

divider

The 1CRM Platform is ideal for integrating into broader solutions. Integrators and ISVs commonly embed 3rd party customer relationship features into their solutions rather than build the capabilities in-house, in order to significantly reduce development and support costs.

 

An OEM Program Partnership puts you in control. You set the price and terms for your product while 1CRM helps power your solution. CRM is increasingly becoming a key application for OEM providers as they seek to integrate customer information into solutions.

 

Flexible Architecture that Runs Anywhere

 

As a LAMP-stack product, the 1CRM Engine shines at working happily in the context of a wide variety of hardware and software platforms as well as different deployment options. So if your company is looking to deliver a solution on-site, on-demand or in the cloud, solutions based on the 1CRM Engine will work for you.

1CRM’s commercial license delivers the protection and assurance you need to take your product to market. OEM partners can modify 1CRM code while retaining their own Intellectual Property, white label, co-brand, and distribute 1CRM code through direct or indirect channels.

With an OEM license, you gain a leading product plus support from our global marketing, engineering, sales and support teams to help you learn how to make the 1CRM Engine work for you, and receive the support needed to make your products and customers a success.

We are looking for OEM Partners that are going to be strong, long-term partners. Some of the important characteristics of a successful Partner are:

  • An established business with strong financial health
  • Software sales and development market presence
  • Ability to commit and deliver on a revenue target
  • Availability of dedicated sales and marketing resources
  • Strong fit between 1CRM’s Product and Service offerings, and Partner’s product
  • Strong overlap between 1CRM’s and Partner’s target audience or customer base
  • Customer references
