Liquidware, the leader in digital workspace management, today announced the Liquidware Ready Program. The program gives partners and customers the confidence they need in making buying decisions that enable digital workspace environments compatible with Liquidware solutions. The program is available in three tiers: Liquidware Ready, Liquidware Ready Verified, and Liquidware Ready Platinum. The last tier is by invitation only.
“Liquidware has long standing alliances that we’ve been co-marketing and co-selling with since our inception in 2009,” commented Jason E. Smith, VP Alliances and Product Marketing, Liquidware. “So, we thought it was high time to formalize this activity and, therefore, introduce the Liquidware Ready program. The program provides our customers and partners with the highest level of confidence of our joint solutions working together hand in hand.”
For mainly co-marketing vendors, the introductory tier – Liquidware Ready – will be validated either in a lab environment or customer site. The most popular tier – Liquidware Ready Verified – true integration, testing and verification will be conducted, along with the possibility of development hours invested by Liquidware. The Liquidware Ready Platinum tier is an invitation only program and comes with all the benefits of the other tiers, but will include a seat on Liquidware’s Development Council, essentially helping to shape future product strategy.
Not all Liquidware Ready vendors’ solutions are compatible with the complete suite of Liquidware products. The program is based upon Liquidware Ready Tracks; these tracks encompass Liquidware’s digital workspace management products – ProfileUnity™, FlexApp™, and Stratusphere™ UX.
