What is a Zoho Alliance Partner?
With so many Zoho consulting options available to you as a business owner, you want to make sure you’re giving your business to the right one – a Zoho Alliance Partner. But, what is a Zoho Alliance Partner, and how is that any different from a regular Zoho partner?
Doing business with a Zoho Alliance Partner
Zoho is choosy about who can join its list of Zoho partners – in order for a consulting firm to be considered a Zoho partner, that company has to fit into one of these categories:
- Zoho CRM consulting and deployment company
- Reseller for Zoho CRM and all its corresponding apps
- Reseller for Zoho Creator, which allows companies to design their own programs and apps, including a Zoho ERP suite.
- Developer that can provide customized Zoho add-ons and integrations
What we, specifically, can bring to the table
We at ZBrains are happy to tell you we fit into all four of these categories. This means that when you do business with us, you get the entire Zoho apps experience, from CRM to Social – and everything in between. As a Zoho partner, ZBrains can:
- Help you deploy your Zoho CRM, supplement it with other Zoho apps, including Zoho Books, Zoho Desk, and many others–and offer consulting help as well.
- Help you choose which Zoho suite is the best for your needs, whether it’s standalone apps, a suite like Zoho CRM Plus, or Zoho One.
- Provide custom Zoho integrations to programs like QuickBooks, Sage 100 (MAS 90 & MAS 200), Sage Intacct, and many others.
As well as consulting for issues that may arise with Zoho, we also offer team training packages for Zoho’s apps and CRM deployment-specific training sessions. We take our partnership with Zoho very seriously, and, for that reason, we leave nothing to the imagination when it comes to getting you Zoho help and support.
How does one become a Zoho Alliance Partner?
Companies applying for the alliance partner distinction are judged by Zoho on a case-by-case basis since the volume of submissions to the Zoho partner program tends to be quite high.
This stringent requirement means that when you choose to do business with a Zoho Alliance Partner, you’re getting the best of what Zoho has to offer – essentially, a hand-picked Zoho partner. As an alliance partner, we’re one of Zoho’s finest – and, that’s a distinction we don’t take lightly. Contact us to see the real difference between dealing with a regular Zoho partner and a real Zoho Alliance Partner.
Is every Zoho consultant a Zoho Alliance Partner?
Unfortunately, no. Although many companies can claim to have Zoho knowledge, not all Zoho partners are alliance partners. You’ll be able to tell who you’re doing business with, though, as Zoho Alliance Partners have all these things in common:
- Listings on Zoho partner program literature, including websites
- A dedicated company profile on Zoho’s website
- Visible Zoho logos, including Zoho Alliance Partner badges, on their own websites
Update: ZBrains is now a Zoho Premium Partner
Recently, Zoho has changed some of its nomenclature. Whereas Alliance Partner used to be the top designation, Premium Partner has now taken that position. And, we’re happy to inform you Zoho has designated us one of their Premium Partners.
Zoho Premium Partners have some extra responsibilities, like releasing periodic case studies. These attest to their customers’ success with the Zoho platform. Additionally, Premium Partners have to maintain a certain amount of revenue growth year-over-year for Zoho. This means we’re more than eager to help you, as our status depends on it!
