• Let’s Keep the Momentum Going!

    As we head into the last quarter of our fiscal year, let’s keep the momentum going to end the year strong. The market and supply chain issues that we have ALL experienced this past year have been a challenge, but it is because of each and every one of you, as members of our PartnerNetwork, that we continue to grow by providing superior support and services, market-leading technology, and a streamlined approach to business. You help us redefine the possibilities, grow through collaboration, reinforce the value of our global community, and advance customer success. 

    Through the remaining part of this year and into the future, we will focus on our strategic priorities to: 

    1) Continue to grow our core automation business and support those partners in that space 

    2) Invest in enablement and training to build the competencies you need to help your companies and our customers succeed 

    3) Strengthen and grow our Partner programs, particularly in regions where we may not have strong market share 

     4) Accelerate growth in Information Solutions (IS) by recruiting partners who want to come on the IS journey with us and build their capabilities to deliver software solutions for our mutual customers.  

    Thank you for all you continue to do. We believe in our PartnerNetwork. That is what makes us strong, what makes us complete, and what helps us achieve results. We are Better Together. 

    -Johannes zu Eltz, Vice President - Global Market Access
