Perforce Software Announces EMEA Expansion of Its International Partner Program

10 May 2012, Wokingham UK—Perforce Software has announced that it is expanding its International Partner Program and is actively recruiting best-of-breed partners across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The announcement coincides with the company's European Road Trip, which visits the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and the UK during May and June.

Says Daniel Liezrowice, Managing Partner at Engineering Software Lab in Israel, "Our partnership with Perforce has been exceptionally beneficial. It has extended our business model and opened the door to new opportunities for ESL. The Perforce approach to partnering, along with an outstanding product and the Version Everything message, resonates well with us and our marketplace. Potential partners can be assured of a helpful, professional and fair working relationship."

Opportunities for Local IT Providers to Partner with Perforce

Simon West, Perforce's Sales Partner Manager for EMEA, said, "The way in which enterprise version management is being used presents new revenue and market expansion opportunities for companies across the region. As recent research from Perforce demonstrates, organisations are using enterprise version management across multiple departments and locations not just to manage code, but for a wide range of digital assets, including documents, web and audio/video content. Perforce and its partners are ideally suited to help organisations improve collaboration and productivity through the adoption and use of enterprise version management. We have already recruited a number of new partners across EMEA and will continue to do so throughout 2012."

Said Dave Robertson, Vice President of International at Perforce Software, "By working with partners who are best at what they do in their markets, we can ensure that our customers can obtain Perforce products and services from a trusted source anywhere in the world. But the benefits of our alliances are more than just geographic—our partners bring added industry and domain expertise that augments our extensive experience at helping companies succeed with enterprise version management."

  • Avenues to opportunities in new industries and practices
