CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2000
Joint Solution Delivers Broad-Based Partner
Relationship Management Capabilities
Onyx Software Corp. (Nasdaq:ONXS), a global supplier of enterprise-wide, customer-centric e-business solutions, and ChannelWave Software, Inc., a leader in partner relationship management (PRM) solutions, today announced a strategic alliance to jointly market each other's solutions.
Through this alliance, customers will be able to purchase a tightly integrated, best-of-breed e-business solution with industry-leading, Web-based customer relationship management (CRM) and eCRM capabilities, as well as the most extensive capabilities for building strong, profitable partnerships.
ChannelWave's PRM solution extends and complements Onyx Software's leading partner solutions and capabilities offered through its partner-facing portal called Onyx Partner Portal. By integrating ChannelWave's in-depth PRM technology with Onyx's Partner Portal, customers are provided with a powerful and feature-rich solution to effectively manage and support their many business partner relationships.
Both Onyx and ChannelWave can be deployed through an ASP or on site. In addition, with ChannelWave's migration guarantee, customers have the flexibility to change their deployment situation to or from an ASP hosted solution if their needs change in the future.
"This partnership is a great example of an emerging model for an integrated solution that manages customer and partner relationships across all sales channels," said Sheryl Kingstone, program manager, The Yankee Group. "Combining ChannelWave's Partner Loyalty System with Onyx's CRM solutions creates a platform for businesses and their partners to conduct more effective and profitable multi-channel collaborative selling."
"Managing partnerships successfully is a critical and complex task. Companies that sell through multiple channels and look toward partners to increase their revenues must have an effective way to give their partners the support, information and training they need, and a sure way to incorporate channel sales forecasts into direct sales reporting for accurate rollup," said Eben Frankenberg, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Onyx Software. "ChannelWave provides a flexible solution to broaden the capabilities provided in our own partner portal product, so companies can automate even the most detailed, most complex partner relationship management system."

"Onyx and ChannelWave together can help customers to support the full range of internal and external relationships that drive sales."
