I don’t know how successful Netsuite will be at signing up Sage Business Partners. They are of course trying to seize upon “the perfect storm” at Sage where a large VAR (MIS Group) just closed their doors, revised tier structure takes affect in October and the overall marketplace is in the summer doldrums.
By you really have to read the offer and not just the headlines.
Netsuite leads with:
SPECIAL OFFER FOR SAGE PARTNERS: BECOME A NETSUITE PARTNER AND EARN 50% MARGIN
Yet the small print say’s:
And, for a limited time, you can add NetSuite to your portfolio at margins of 50% for the first 12 months.
Hat’s off to ANY Sage partner who can sell a material number of deals within 1 year of becoming authorized for any platform.
Unfortunately Netsuite has also garnered a lot of press — mostly about perceived channel unfriendliness and a tendency to sell direct.
