Channel Partner Referral Program
Go-To-Market Initiative Enables Partners To Expand Revenue Streams While Strengthening Customer Relationships
SALT LAKE CITY, UT / ACCESSWIRE / July 17, 2023 / AIQ (www.aiq.co), a leading technology-enabled cost management and profitability improvement company backed by Copley Equity Partners, today unveiled its new Channel Partner Referral program that empowers technology providers to benefit from AIQ’s comprehensive data-driven technology procurement and management services. The program is open to System Integrators, VARs, consultants, MSPs, and other providers that work with enterprise customers on a regional, national, and global scale.
AIQ’s Channel Partner Referral program is designed to be a low-touch, high-impact opportunity for technology providers. Partners that refer clients to AIQ for technology assessment, procurement and negotiation services receive a 10 percent commission of any fees AIQ receives from its referred clients. Partners do not need to participate in AIQ’s processes. The referral program is applicable to any IT-related project within an enterprise that is either currently operating or in the planning stages, or for enterprises that are looking to improve their cash position by optimizing vendor contracts.
“We are delighted to introduce the Channel Partner Referral program, which gives technology providers an opportunity to generate significant revenue from AIQ’s services, while also allowing them to deepen relationships with their customers,” said Blake Wetzel, AIQ’s Chief Executive Officer. “Many enterprises are finding it expensive and difficult to raise capital in this economic climate, and are looking at alternative means to fund new initiatives, improve EBITDA, reduce expenses, or sustain existing operations. The Channel Partner Referral program gives our partners a solution to help remedy these financial challenges, and ensure that their clients have the resources to successfully achieve their strategic goals.”
According to Hyoun Park, Principal Analyst for Amalgam Insights, AIQ’s value proposition represents a unique opportunity for partners and consultants.
“The biggest challenge in managing IT procurement is in optimizing contracts across the wide variety of complex spend categories that are within IT,” said Park. “Companies struggle to unlock savings that can account for 30 percent or more of this spend because of the lack of subject matter expertise, time, resources and effective contract management. AIQ’s program empowers partners to help customers with multi-million dollar IT spend overcome these challenges.“

Through AIQ’s proprietary reverse-auction process, clients have enjoyed supplier savings of 44 percent on average since the company’s inception 20 years ago.
