Minerva joins the Advanced Partner Programme


Minerva has today announced that it has joined the Advanced partner programme – TruePartner.

This appointment underpins Minerva’s strength in the areas of Cloud technology and demonstrates Minerva’s commitment to helping SMEs accelerate their transformation to the Cloud.

With recent research from Advanced revealing only 67% of businesses are using Cloud-based technology, Minerva’s appointment to the TruePartner programme will enable our customers and future customers to take advantage of full Cloud technology.

Founded in 1984, Minerva is considered to be one of the foremost resellers of business software and network services in the UK. Over this time, Minerva has gained an unparallelled reputation as a provider of quality IT solutions and services to a wide range of businesses throughout the country.

John Chadwick, Managing Director at Minerva, commented: “Minerva have been in business for 35 years. Over that period we have cultivated a portfolio of “best of breed” applications which were designed for on premise situations and we have serviced that requirement from both our Applications and our Networking teams.

The market is moving towards Cloud alternatives and we have been searching for some time for a suitable partnership. We are confident Business Cloud Essentials now fills that void and we intend to embrace the opportunity“.

The Advanced TruePartner programme is designed to reward resellers for their Cloud-first strategy, ensuring it provides the training, skills transfer and ongoing support with SMEs to drive joint success for its Cloud-based ERP solutions – focusing on Advanced Business Cloud Essentials*.

Janette Martin, Managing Director of Strategic Partnerships and Alliances at Advanced, welcomes its new partner: “We know that there is an incredible opportunity as more and more SMEs look to embrace Cloud technology across their organisation. However, to ensure this is successful, they require support on this journey– from implementation, training and support through to future planning.

“Minerva has demonstrated its strengths and ambitions in this area. They now have the opportunity to deliver genuine Cloud solutions to their customers, underpinned by an experienced support system that can help this transformation. By joining the TruePartner programme, Minerva is enviably positioned to realise the benefits a Cloud subscription service can deliver in terms of recurring revenue, client retention and client acquisition.”

Some of the key features that Advanced is providing with its new TruePartner programme include:

• Close collaboration and support with resellers to develop market and sector insight
• Onboarding, training and marketing support for partners
• Comprehensive accreditation and generous financial rewards, at every level
• Confidence that resellers will be providing SMEs with genuine cloud solutions

The new TruePartner programme is built around five levels of partnership: Reseller, Service, Alliance, Advisor and Software. For more information, visit www.oneadvanced.com/TruePartner.
