Included in the standard NetSuite account is the Partner Center Role for partners. A partner is a company you have a business agreement with who isn’t a customer or a vendor. The Partner Center role lets your partners view their Customers, Sales and Promotion Codes and reports.
NetSuite’s partner management software extends your sales organization while allowing you to maintain full control of every element of the selling process, including promotional discounts and marketing campaigns. NetSuite lets you provide promotional discounts through your channel as one-time-use discounts, or limited time offers. Support your partners’ marketing efforts with campaign tracking capabilities, which allow you to monitor and optimize channel programs via a referring URL.
Based on the level of access you set, the partner management software allows your partners to view customer records, manage their pipeline more effectively, enter leads and process orders. Additionally, with partner management software you’ll be able to track sales activity and view forecasts on your partner channel.
You can even give channel partners access to the latest campaigns and product information via an intranet. As a result, your partners can sell and service customers more effectively.
If you do not have partner records enabled in your account, an administrator can enable them at Setup > Enable Features. On the CRM subtab, check the Partner Relationship Management box, and click Save. To assign the Partner Center role to a partner, the Partner Access feature must be turned on at Setup > Enable Features > Web Site.
