"We understand that our international customers want the option of in-country support and we're committed to fulfilling those needs with an array of top-class partners across the globe," said Dave Robertson, vice president of channels. "Our channel network brought in a substantial amount of new business in 2014, and we expect the same to continue this year, especially with our forthcoming product announcements and enhancements."

Perforce continues to expand its partner network across multiple territories. "There is strong growth potential for Perforce-based solutions in multiple markets and we will continue to address this opportunity through the expansion of our channel," said Robertson.
