Empowering Success Together: The IonIdea Partnership Commitment

You and IonIdea, A Partnership Built to Last

IonIdea’s Partner Relationship Managers are totally focused on and invested in your success. The highest levels at IonIdea, from the CEO down, are personally involved, highly motivated, and extremely committed to making you successful as an IonPartner.

We truly believe that your personal success as an IonPartner is extremely important for the overall success of our IonPartner program, which in turn is critical to the success of IonIdea. Therefore, our relationship with our IonPartners is about putting ourselves in your shoes and keeping your interests in mind.

Earn More. Work Less.

Your clients face a variety of tech challenges. Odds are, you don’t solve them all. What if you could earn more revenue without taking on more work?

The IonPartner program lets you solve more of your clients’ challenges without adding to your already busy workload. This means earning more money by solving more problems and creating deeper and stickier relationships, all without the burden of additional delivery requirements.

Why become an IonPartner?

IonPartners are professionals who currently serve customers who have technology or process challenges. IonPartners want to be able to earn money by solving those challenges without doing the technical work themselves. In addition, there are a variety of reasons an IonPartner might join the program:

  • They want to focus on their strengths in relationship building and problem recognition.
  • They are specialists who regularly discover challenges outside their core competencies and who would like to be able to capitalize on those challenges without building new internal skillsets.
  • They are tired of leaving money on the table when they hit their delivery capacity.
  • They are skilled tech salespeople and want to work, sell, and earn on their own terms, without the rigidity of being a regular employee.

All IonPartners enjoy being able to solve more of their clients’ challenges and earn more money without taking on more deliverables.

Are you a potential IonPartner?

IonPartners come from a range of backgrounds.

Independent consultants and consulting firms call on IonIdea to handle technical work. This lets the consultant focus on doing the work they love—strategy and relationship management.

Independent sales professionals simply pull IonIdea into the portfolio of solutions they’re already providing. With IonIdea, they have a one-stop shop that can handle any tech challenge they encounter. With a solution for every problem, they’re able to solve more problems. That deepens their reputation as trusted advisors and provides earning opportunities.

Software companies (and other tech-solution providers) look to IonIdea as a preferred Systems Integrator (SI). They appreciate having a reliable, consistent SI who they can trust to help their customers get more value from their solutions, faster. They like receiving a share of the professional services fees, without having to maintain a services team.

Specialized IT Services providers bring in IonIdea to fill their gaps. Specialized providers are incredible at very specific work, and often don’t want to dilute that focus. Even so, they appreciate being able to earn more revenue when they discover clients’ other challenges, and they value being able to provide holistic solutions through IonIdea.

How do you get paid as an IonPartner?

IonIdea pays generous referral fees to IonPartners who provide guided introductions to new clients. For IonPartners who manage those conversations from the start until the signed agreement, IonIdea provides even greater compensation.

No matter the nature of your relationships with your clients, IonIdea has a structure that works for you.

How does IonIdea support IonPartners?

Through the IonPartner program, IonIdea provides a wide range of support, including:

  • Comprehensive onboarding: IonIdea ensures IonPartners are equipped to succeed by providing world-class onboarding. We want you to understand what we do and how we do it so you can speak confidently to your clients about the value we’ll create for them.
  • Marketing support and co-marketing opportunities: For a lot of IonPartners, marketing isn’t a strength. We realize that, so IonIdea’s marketing team provides the resources to take you to the next level. Whether it’s a sales deck, a case study, or a tailored comarketing piece for your top target, IonIdea’s marketing team is here to help. Our marketing support not only serves to build our brand—by extension, it also helps you build yours.
  • Sales support: When it comes to sales, a second opinion on your deals can be invaluable. That’s why IonIdea meets regularly with IonPartners to help them assess their deals, next steps, and keep those deals on track to close.
  • IT Risk and Cost Protection: Employees are among a business’s greatest expenses. IonIdea’s business structure and international footprint enable clients to expand their development capabilities while protecting themselves from additional risk or cost creep.
  • Sales training and frameworks: No one is born a sales expert. That’s why IonIdea has retained Maestro Group, a sales consulting firm, specifically to provide sales training and frameworks for IonPartners. You’ll have access to Maestro Group’s training programs, which will help you sell more of your own services, as well as IonIdea’s.
