Turn up the fire hose and take a deep breath because it’s time to onboard with yet another vendor! “Uggggghhhhh,” you might be saying to yourself. But don’t fret and never fear, because Citrix has taken the pain out of onboarding for partners. How do we do this magic?

The way you position yourself at the beginning of a relationship has profound impact on where you end up. — Ron Karr

So, you’ve entered into a new channel program with yet another vendor.

Resellers enter into channel relationships for lots of reasons. Like any other relationship in life, the best ones are built on a solid foundation and are positioned correctly.

You are told all about the great earning potential you now have by offering their solution. Your sales team is seeing green through all the possibilities that the partner program offers. Your technical bench is SUPER EXCITED about the opportunity to certify in another product *insert eye roll here*. This is all great … but all you are really given is login credentials to a partner portal and a program guide.

How can you onboard and position your business to be the channel champion for that solution? We’ve got good news.

Citrix has taken all the guess work out of the onboarding process with our *NEW* Citrix Solution Advisor (CSA) PARTNER ONBOARDING GUIDE! As a new CSA (or even as an existing Citrix Solution Advisor onboarding new sales, technical, or marketing people), you now have a concise and prescriptive guide to establish that firm foundation.

Time management is an oxymoron. Time is beyond our control, and the clock keeps ticking regardless of how we lead our lives. Priority management is the answer to maximizing the time we have. — John C. Maxwell

Not only will you be guided through RELEVANT actions, but you can use the CSA PARTNER ONBOARDING GUIDE as an easy reference to the vast and seemingly endless supply of resources available to you. The prioritization has been done for you, giving you and your team valuable time back to do what you do best … OWNING THE CHANNEL!
