How do I become a PartnerWorks Partner of Extreme Networks?

The PartnerWorks Program

Kappa Data is convinced that the best party to support and maintain an end user, is the integration partner. Mostly the partner already has a trusted long-term relationship and is therefore the most suitable single point of contact.

In this conviction, Kappa Data supports partners to level themselves to become the Extreme Networks supportive party with both Extreme Networks and Kappa Data cover their backs.

The Extreme Networks PartnerWorks Program is a value-based program focussed on the partner’s ability to deliver business solutions built upon Extreme Network’s technologies. The program provides partners with the latest Extreme Networks technologies and training to build their capabilities. The program rewards partners with incentives, branding, better margin and other benefits for the value they bring to our mutual customers.

You as a partner, you can choose how you support your customer with every product purchase. Through the PartnerWorks program, you can offer a wide variety of maintenance services to augment your own value-add services. If you have invested in staff and expertise, Extreme Networks rewards you for your investment in your infrastructure and provide back-end support to your support staff.
