SURE! Partner Management
SURE! Partner Management at a Glance
SURE!, a Magnaquest product, offers a powerful Partner Management Solution for Cloud, Pay TV and Broadband players that keeps track of all transactions made with the third party service providers and enables the service providers to book agreements. It also manages network end points with other network / content providers.
As a service provider you deal with third party groups like content providers, content aggregators and other service providers for completion of service delivery as well as for sharing the networks. You should always focus on managing your entire value chain: partners, suppliers, resellers, content providers and others. To meet critical business goals, you have to be responsive to ever changing customer expectations, and must be equipped to introduce third parties quickly to offer new and more attractive services. In such a scenario real-time settlement of funds is a major factor. Once a content or service is delivered, the share of revenue associated with the service delivery should be shared with the associated partners in your service delivery life cycle. This is a vital aspect to ensure unimpeded service continuity. You would also have to generate statements on a periodic basis, factor in reconciliation and resolve dispute settlement.
SURE! helps in handling multiple partner settlements to multiple partners and this system automates managing volume settlements and handles them in real-time, to avoid time and cost spent on often complex, error-prone post settlement tasks. This feature maps the complex sales and distribution relationships and enables the monitoring of business performance at a granular level.
