Leading independent analyst firms agree that a strong PRM solution and an easy-to-use partner portal is key to attracting and retaining partners. Principle analyst with Forrester Research Tim Harmon wrote,
Partners regularly report to Forrester that the 'transacting business' element of their vendor relationships is the most burdensome to them and is the one thing that causes them to shift their investments and wallet share to other vendors. Given that partners closely associate ease of doing business with your channel IT systems, if your partner loyalty is waning, it's time to reinvest in a more robust, modern PRM capability. i
