The multi-tiered programme will allow resellers and partners easy access to Ooyala technologies

Ooyala has introduced its Ooyala Solutions Partner Programme, which allows its video technology and reseller partners to access and deploy a set of Ooyala technologies. 

The programme is built on a three-tier system, comprised of referral partners, associate resellers and premier resellers. It is designed to enable partners to grow their business and extend their capabilities with Ooyala technology and services. As partners become more successful in providing solutions based on or integrated with Ooyala technology, they then can qualify for a higher tier and increased benefits. Benefits vary by tier and include free online training, co-selling support, demo accounts, technical support seats, product discounts and executive sponsorship. To date, more than 30 companies have joined the programme including VCS Productions (Switzerland), Videoelec (Colombia) and Digital Logistics (Australia).

Offering Ooyala’s core video platform and its media logistics solution, Ooyala Flex, the programme provides solutions to produce, edit, archive and syndicate content, and to manage, publish, measure and monetise premium video.

A new Solution Partner Portal is also now available to current partners. Cmpanies interested in learning more about Ooyala’s partner programme shoud visit Ooyala’s Partner page.

"The new, tiered partner programme arms them with the resources required to continue to see increased success with their customers and provide solutions that solve the most complex video challenges in the industry today."
