Selling SAP solutions
Features and benefits
Commission-based, go-to-market model
Cloud deployment offers affordability, scalability, and a simplicity that enables customers to focus on growing their business, not running their IT. The flex model for SAP PartnerEdge Cloud Choice gives you flexibility, better cashflow, and more opportunities in the cloud.
Many vendors in the IT industry overlook the fact that partners also need help marketing their solutions and developing markets. We see that as an imperative. As an SAP reseller, we offer the opportunity to earn market development funds (MDFs) and business development funds to help you promote your business. In fact, at up to 21 months, SAP has one of the industry's most flexible policies in terms of how long your MDF is valid for use.
This initiative allows you to sell a solution that you are not authorized to sell if you collaborate with a partner that is authorized for that solution. This helps accelerate the sales cycle and enables you to deliver on your customers’ needs by delivering more-comprehensive solutions. Through the initiative, you can focus on your specific areas of expertise while offering a broader SAP portfolio, growing revenue through incremental subscription sales.
Your employees’ capabilities are key, and we offer a broad training portfolio – delivered virtually or in person – to help skill your staff. Our curriculums offer a blended approach of classroom training, workshops, and e-learning resources accessed from SAP Learning Hub. In addition to formal training, we offer an ongoing stream of supplementary sessions on topics such as social selling, maximizing your partnership, and strategic solution and go-to-market opportunities.
Our digital sales suite provides tools and sales methodologies that help you identify new business opportunities, engage with customers effectively, and improve your sales and marketing performance. Resources include our social-selling enablement program and online AI simulators from SkillGym to help sales teams hone their skills. In addition, you can apply for a dedicated digital demand agent with full access to SAP digital tools, digital selling techniques, and solution specialists.

Beginning with a review of your value proposition and digital audit, we evaluate your SEO and content marketing. To fuel your demand generation engine, an SAP digital demand specialist can provide guidance on social media and social selling along with other SAP tools and resources.
You can engage more effectively with sales prospects using video. With personalized and tailored messages, your salespeople can explain why they’d like to connect with prospects. This helps you stand out from the competition and get that much sought-after meeting.
