ADDISON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clear Technologies, Inc., a value-added reseller based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, has achieved Platinum status in IBM’s new PartnerWorld program redesigned for the Cognitive era. Earning the highest tier within the PartnerWorld program, Platinum Business Partners consistently demonstrate proven capabilities and expertise in IBM technologies to help their clients succeed in their digital transformation.
“Our company was started in 1993, primarily as an AS400 reseller. Since then, Clear Technologies has undergone a transformation that is grounded in providing technologies that benefit our customers,” said Doug Long, vice president of sales at Clear Technologies. “I am beyond pleased that our hard work has paid off as we were recognized as an IBM Platinum level Business Partner and experts in our business’ core competencies of Servers and Storage. This is a testament to not only our sales success and expertise in the solutions we provide, but also high satisfaction from our clients, which is most important to our organization.”
IBM added the Platinum designation as part of the newly redesigned PartnerWorld program, which the company announced last February at the PartnerWorld Leadership Conference. The new, four-tiered PartnerWorld program moves IBM and its Business Partners from a product-centric model to one focused on competencies, customer satisfaction and revenue. The Platinum level is designed to recognize partners that consistently deliver the highest level of excellence. Organizations achieve the Platinum level by earning at least two competencies (one at the Expert level), attaining significant sales success, demonstrating client satisfaction and verifying two client references.
“The new PartnerWorld program is designed towards ultimate simplification to help our partners both large and small succeed and drive velocity in high growth areas like cloud and cognitive,” said Marc Dupaquier, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners. “By achieving the Platinum level, Clear Technologies, Inc. has shown its commitment and expertise in delivering client solutions with the power to transform businesses in the cognitive era.”
