Companies use partner management software to optimize their relationships with business partners like contractors, distributors, resellers, and services providers. Companies need to find, attract, and keep reliable partners to help with strategic growth or operational efficiencies. To maintain a good relationship with their partners, companies need to manage communications, information exchange, and collaboration between each partner and the company. Depending on the relationship, they also need to track other details such as compliance to laws, contractual terms and conditions, or incentive and loyalty rewards. Partner management software can be used by any department of a company that does business with third-party contractors (e.g., external warehouses or distribution centers, transportation companies, professional services companies, and consultants).
This type of solution should not be confused with other software products that manage relationships like CRM (used only for customers) or supplier relationship management (part of supply chain management). Partner management software delivers optimal results when used with other software solutions that track project management activities, as well as marketing and sales software.
