Last week, Socius Affiliate Services (USMasterVAR, LLC) hosted their network of Affiliate Partners as well as a number of ISV Select (Independent Software Vendor) Partners at their THRIVE 2016 conference in Columbus, Ohio.
Socius Affiliate organizations are Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM Partners who have chosen to align their businesses with Socius for enhanced collaboration and efficiency. Through Socius Affiliate Services and the Microsoft Dynamics Master VAR program, Socius provides their Affiliates with business development, sales and marketing, brand, certification and technical readiness support. Socius Affiliates leverage these services as they continue to sell to and service new and existing customers. The result is marked growth in individual Affiliate businesses.
The annual THRIVE conference is an opportunity for Socius Affiliates to come together to share with and learn from their peers, ISVs, and Socius subject matter experts. The attending ISV Select Partners had the opportunity to share the latest advancements of their solutions, which work seamlessly with the Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions that the Affiliates provide to clients. Socius staff also presented on a variety of topics including business tactics, sales strategies, marketing best-practices and tips, project management efficiencies, and Microsoft Dynamics solution-specific advancements.
In addition to the many informative sessions available at THRIVE 2016, Socius Affiliates also took advantage of time to engage with one another to share experiences and learnings throughout the three day conference.
“The success of THRIVE 2016 is a true testament to the services we provide to our Affiliates and to the Affiliates’ commitment to their own businesses as well as to our thriving community. The relationships, collaboration and learning we all experience at this annual event lay the foundation for our next year of building. There’s really no Partner event like it. I’m very proud of and grateful for the contributions made by our Affiliates, by the Socius teams, and our ISV Select Partners. We truly are a THRIVE-ing community.” – Jennifer (Richey) Totten, Program & Channel Manager, Socius Affiliate Services
