The Business Partner Program has two partner tracks: Solution Providers and Referral Partners.  The Solution Provider Program allows partners to resell and integrate SunGard solutions into their existing portfolios.  The Referral Partner Program rewards partners that recommend SunGard services to customers.

Designed to support varying business models and commitment levels, Solution Provider and Referral Partners have the ability to advance through each tier to achieve additional incentives and benefits.  As a member of the Partner Program, partners receive access to sales and marketing resources, training and education, and co-marketing opportunities as well as dedicated channel support.

Agilysys has enjoyed a very successful partnership with SunGard, due in large part to the broad portfolio of enterprise-class hosting services available to us as a SunGard Business Partner,” said Nancy Pasquariello, director of sales, Advanced Solutions Group at Agilysys.  “Now as our customers look to move to the cloud, we can offer them the hybrid solutions that their environments demand; this provides Agilysys the ease and convenience of being able to work with just one partner as we serve the needs of our diverse customer base.
