Extreme Networks empowers global Extreme Partner Network with new PartnerLink mobile app

Increasingly mobile world requires partners have access to sales tools and critical content from anywhere to aid and accelerate the sales cycle

SYDNEY — Jan. 21, 2015 — Extreme Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXTR), a leader in high performance networking, today announced PartnerLink, a mobile application available to the Extreme Partner Network (EPN) and associated sales teams, enabling Extreme partners across the globe to accelerate the sales process and close business faster by providing easy access to key sales and marketing content from a smart phone or tablet anytime, anywhere.

The new EPN PartnerLink Mobile App supports iOS, Android and Blackberry devices and is designed to broaden partner access, engage partners with relevant content and increase the awareness and uptake of products, programs and promotions.

PartnerLink empowers sales teams to act on current product promotions, to better respond to customer requests and allows them to close deals on the go, which has become a requirement in today’s increasingly connected world. PartnerLink will allow Extreme Networks’ authorised partners to register sales opportunities on the fly, and provides easily accessible content like product promotions, the latest customer case studies, datasheets, and competitive sales battle cards. PartnerLink also delivers focused regional content based on users’ geographies.

As a partner-first organisation with more than 2,500 partners worldwide, Extreme Networks is dedicated to enabling channel partner success, and the launch of PartnerLink is the latest move demonstrating the company’s efforts to simplify daily processes and speed the flow of information.
