arcplan offers expansion opportunities for software manufacturers
OEM partners are given direct influence on product development

Langenfeld, Germany / Wayne, PA, April 29, 2014 – In order to continue expansion, arcplan is looking for leading innovative software providers of Business Intelligence (BI) and planning solutions. Furthermore the company is in search of software manufacturers, system integrators, and SAAS providers who develop and sell their own applications or solution modules on the basis of arcplan software. Preferred OEM partners are medium-sized companies with a focus on ERP and CRM solutions with identified sales potential in the BI market, but have not been represented with their own offerings yet, or have only been so to a limited extent.

The BI specialist, with its German headquarters near Dusseldorf and US headquarters in Philadelphia, PA, wants to further expand the user base of its flexible BI platform, arcplan 8, by extending its partner network. The OEM partner program is a tremendous opportunity for interested parties beyond just profit. It is also flexible and proven in terms of price setting, licensing model, and marketing. arcplan places great value on long-term, straightforward, and equal cooperation relationships. The program is structured to allow partners to provide feedback and give direct influence on product development.

Companies interested in a partnership should already be established in the market as ERP and CRM specialists, with a specific industry focus preferred but not a requirement. The most important aspect of the program is a clear interest in the development or expansion of the portfolio of solutions in the BI and planning area, which is made possible within the context of the desired OEM partnership. Any offerings with Excel as a frontend can be replaced by the powerful arcplan solution. This repeatedly proven OEM partner program includes four phases to ensure a quick, simple, and flexible integration of arcplan software products into offered applications.

With such groundbreaking products as the arcplan 8 BI platform, companies receive a powerful tool that meets every requirement for use in Business Intelligence, Analysis and Planning applications. The application allows direct access to more than 20 relational and multi-dimensional data sources from almost every relevant market provider using various end devices, from desktop PCs to smartphones.

“We offer future OEM partners more freedom for their core competencies along with additional potential for sales, providing exceptional opportunities for expansion. With new software specialists at our side, we are looking to continue our past expansion together,” emphasizes Oliver Deistler, Senior VP Channels & Business Development at arcplan. "arcplan OEM partners communicate with us directly, without any reservations. They can rely on our proven and extremely flexible BI platform, which already won more than 3,200 customers around the world.“
