Strategic Network Partners support the development of eFront in a particular geographical area by working to expand eFront’s footprint and presence in that area.

Certified Partners are Integration Partners who have demonstrated a solid track record of implementation of eFront solutions, and have secured sufficient scale to credibly support eFront clients. They are required to employ a minimum number of consultants who are regularly trained on eFront solutions and are certified by eFront’s Education Services team within the areas that Partners operate in. Capabilities are reassessed every six months to ensure best-in-class and up-to-date knowledge.

Affiliated Partners are Integration Partners whose track record and/or expertise is acknowledged by eFront within some domains and selected geographical areas at a level of experience and/or capacity that is narrower in comparison to Certified Partners. Capabilities, scale and track record will be reassessed every six months.
