Unlike many vendor programs, SAP PartnerEdge offers engagement models that fit the way you work and engage with customers – and you’re not limited to one approach. You may wish to adopt our sales engagement model at first and expand the partnership to include build, service, or run models as your business grows. Our standardized fees, consistent benefits, harmonized discounts, and simplified contracts reduce administration and ensure the program grows along with your business and ambitions.
Higher level, bigger benefits
There are two program levels: silver and gold. The silver entry level entitles you to an impressive set of program benefits that increase as you advance to the gold level through our unique Value Points system. It's simple: the more points, the higher the level and the bigger the benefits.
Points that make prizes
Earn Value Points for your business performance and competency, and acceleration points for strategic alignment on key topics or solutions. You get recognized for your total business contribution across all the engagement models you've joined. Total Value Points determine your program level.
Money for marketing
Partners at the gold level can accrue market development funds as a percentage of SAP software license or subscription sales. You can use this money to pay for qualifying marketing and demand-generation activities, as well as for select services found in our online partner benefits catalog.
At SAP, we don’t box you in. In fact, we actively encourage our partners to explore and join all our engagement models. Our straightforward program structure makes it easy to try new approaches, while harmonized benefits help ensure that your total contribution across all models counts towards your level and benefits.
