In the era of cloud computing, companies no longer see the cloud as a mere option to reduce IT costs. Today cloud means scalability, business transformation, being closer to the customer, agility, and many other opportunities for gaining a competitive advantage. If you are a managed service provider (MSP), a system integrator or an IT consultant looking to add lifetime revenue streams and help your customers migrate to the cloud successfully, then the Channel Partner Program of CloudSigma is what you have been looking for.
Why cloud channel partner programs work
✅ Acquire new revenue
First, as a cloud channel partner, you enjoy a predictable, growing long term revenue stream from your customers on top of your IT enabling or managed services.
✅ Improve your profitability
Next, many of your customers are considering the cloud as an option or are already deployed with a cloud provider and are facing some challenges. Instead of wondering how to solve these issues, you can turn your customers’ challenges into your opportunities.
✅ Reduce business risk
When you join forces with a high service cloud partner, you can focus on your core strengths and provide add-on services without additional costs or risks.
✅ Reach new markets
Finally, the self-service cloud with locations worldwide gives you two major benefits. On the one hand, it enables you to expand your geographic reach and enter new market segments. On the other hand, it gives you the opportunity to profit from your existing international customers interested in deploying in another location.
“Having one partner for everything, with a choice of locations, being able to be closer to each client and provide better performance, allows us to better serve our customers.”
– Nick Berthet, CTO @ Picturepark.
What you get out of the channel partner program
As a valued channel partner of CloudSigma, we help you turn customers migrating to the cloud into opportunities. Thus, you achieve a recurring revenue stream.
✅ 15% lifetime commission
You will receive between 15% and 25% of lifetime commission against all payments by your customers in our cloud. Besides, there are no time or size limitations, i.e. it doesn’t matter if the customer is paying for one year or for 10 years, and also it doesn’t matter if the customer is paying USD 100 per month or USD 10,000.
For example, if your customer spends USD 2,000 a month on compute with CloudSigma, you would receive USD 300 back in your bank account every month.
Commissions are paid once a quarter when a minimum commission balance of USD 100 for an account is reached. All commissions are converted to USD based on the last exchange rates used by CloudSigma for setting prices in each currency.
Last but not least – once you go over a certain threshold, your lifetime commission grows as per the table below:
|Threshold Level||Referral Fee Percentage|
|All Qualified Referrals where Qualifying Revenues are up to USD 50,000 per month||15%|
|All Qualified Referrals for Qualifying Revenues are between USD 50,001 and USD 150,000 per month||20%|
|All Qualified Referrals where Qualifying Revenues are greater than USD 150,001 per month||25%|

“Security and where we keep the data is very important for our end customers. This is all cash register data, revenues, etc., which is highly relevant for accounting. Keeping this data safe was a major factor when selecting a cloud provider.”
– Ron Ritschard, Owner at Baldegger+Sortec AG.
