Use Case

Partner Capability Matrix


Sales reps aren’t usually experts on all capabilities for all partners. Bridging the gap between what partners can bring to the table and what the customer needs can often be a high-lift process. By creating a dashboard of partner capabilities, combined with records of previous wins, sales can easily understand the total product to sell to customer, and which partners enable that.

Top-Line Growth

Provide a one-stop reference to find the perfect partner capability to help close the deal

Bottom-Line Returns

Reduce time sales needs to spend researching and increase access to full capability library

Stronger Partnerships

More visibility and access to partner capabilities means closing more deals that incorporate partners


Business Problem

When your customers need more than your company alone can deliver, you turn to your network of partners. If you find a match between the problem that your customer wants to solve and the combined capabilities that your partners provide, you can offer a solution.

Usually, it’s channel managers who know partner capabilities well enough to find a match, but they don’t always know all of the partners. That means sales must navigate an incomplete, disjointed knowledge base of partner capabilities and try to arrive at a solution. Meanwhile, customer experience is poor, the delay may cost you the deal, and you may overlook the optimal partner for the customer’s needs.

Analytics Solution

Arm your sales reps with a one-stop dashboard of partners and their capabilities. Through the dashboard, sales can easily look for partners with specific capabilities, search for previous wins by partners and capabilities, and find experts to collaborate on a proposal.
