A new referral program that financially rewards members when SAP closes the deal with a small business or midsize company was announced today at the annual SME Summit in New York City today.
What differentiates this referral program from others in the market is that all a participant has to do is just send a referral and SAP does the rest of the work. If the deal closes, you get paid 10 percent or up to 25K Euro on each net new deal in the small and midsized enterprise (SME) market.
The new program called, SAP PartnerEdge Cloud Choice, referral option, is open to all SAP partners, members and non-partners; as well as, any business that deals with SME customers on a regular basis (i.e. Technology Advisors, Business Consultants, CPA firms, marketing firms, local chambers of commerce, legal firms, etc.)
SAP PartnerEdge Cloud Choice, referral option pays 10% commission for cloud deals that close with a maximum payout of 25k Euro on the Annual Contract Value (ACV) for net new deals in the SME market.
In addition, this referral program pay 5% for on-premise deals, and there is no cap on the amount of deals that you can refer or get paid on. The program is currently available in select countries in EMEA and MEE, and in North America.
