BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Appfire, a leading Platinum Solutions Partner and provider of Atlassian apps, today announced that it has launched a new premium subscription service called ‘The A List.’ The service provides customers with direct one-on-one access to Atlassian Certified Professionals who can assist them with questions about their deployment strategies, product configuration, governance, best practices, consolidations, migrations and upgrades, and much more.
A Tailored Subscription Experience
Appfire’s proprietary and patent-pending technology algorithms help tailor the experience to meet the specific needs of each subscribed user.
A Bounty of Benefits
Each subscription includes the following:
- Guidance from Atlassian Certified Professionals on hardware sizing, general installation & configuration, migrations, upgrades, Data Center deployments, consolidations, workflow setup, and much more.
- Access to hundreds of articles, how-to’s, and best practice guides.
- Free health checks for your Atlassian platform.
- Personalized 1-on-1 training on Atlassian and Appfire products.
- Member-only discounts on Appfire products.
- Free 1-year license for all new Appfire apps released.
- Atlassian license specialists to assist with your software licensing needs.
“Value is amplified when professional services firms become ‘advisors’ rather than just service providers paid by the hour,” said Kalyani Vunnava, Principal Program Manager at Appfire. “Offering ‘The A List’ as an individual subscription allows us to serve the direct needs of each subscriber, working on what matters most to them, based on the priorities that they communicate.”
According to The Business Research Company’s 2017 Report on the Global Professional Services Market, they expect to see the market grow to $5 trillion by 2020—and one of the largest growth segments will come from subscription-based professional services.
“Customers no longer want to be sold services; they want to subscribe to them,” said George Lannan, Principal Strategist at Appfire. “Long sales cycles, competitive bidding, MSAs, legal reviews, cyber risks, and purchasing teams are just a few of the reasons that make professional services transactions feel primitive—and ultimately disadvantageous to both buyer and seller.”
This past summer, Appfire offered its subscription service to a handful of test markets across Massachusetts, New York, Maine, Michigan, South Dakota, Illinois, Tennessee, Washington, and California, and based on that success, has now scaled the program to a level where it can be offered throughout North America.
