After a meeting with our Sage business development manager to discuss Sage 50 and other small business products such as ACT! and Sage HR, Kinspeed were offered the prestigious accolade of Platinum Partner.
Kinspeed have already sold more than 135 % of product value in the first Sage quarter than in all the previous year. By analysing the sales we can see that this due to our marketing techniques, in particular by promoting partnerships with other resellers such as hardware vendors and cloud providers. We have also been pushing social networking, and have found we have attracted the small business market to our web site.
Sage SBD products are by no means new to Kinspeed as we have been selling them for 20 years now. Our marketing team will be actively pushing small business products and we are looking to offer Real Time Information (RTI) training and consultancy in the coming weeks. RTI is the biggest change to HMRC legislation since the war and it is essential that companies adhere to new procedures.
Sage’s Platinum Partners Scheme recognises and rewards those leading Business Partners that provide outstanding customer service, adopt a fully collaborative approach to joint business planning and achieve strong sales performance. As a Platinum Partner, Kinspeed will benefit from new levels of support from Sage in the form of access to valuable sales and marketing tools and assets, dedicated account management support, as well as marketing advice and guidance, which will empower the company to achieve business growth and deliver an improved experience to its customers.
Steve Attwell, General Manager of Sage, commented
‘Sage are delighted to be working closely with Kinspeed who have been providing Sage software along with a high quality service for many years. Kinspeed’s recent attainment of Platinum status makes them the only Sage Business Partner in South Yorkshire to have achieved this accolade. I would like to congratulate them and look forward to see the team at Kinspeed deliver many more years of service excellence to Sage customers’
