How does NAG's Consulting Partners Program Work?
Initially, the consulting company and NAG conduct a joint assessment of the consulting company's capabilities, clients and assignment opportunities. Assuming that the NAG Consulting Partners program is a good fit, NAG agrees to provide a package of products and services to help the consulting company develop its practice in new areas.
NAG Consulting Partners Program is tailored to the needs of the partner but typically will include:
- Software Components - NAG Consulting Partners developer kit includes development licenses for one or more of the NAG Libraries, compilers, and visualization tools.
- Technical Support - Access to NAG's expert developers by phone and email for installation and usage advice.
- Marketing Support - NAG will promote NAG Consulting Partners, their capabilities and practice areas through the NAG website and through NAGNews, NAG's e-newsletter distributed to over 7,000 subscribers worldwide. In addition to information on the NAG website and links to the Partner's site, NAG will also provide lead referrals to Partners best matched to opportunities it receives.
- Pre-Sale Support - NAG can host or participate in web meetings to increase the confidence of prospective clients.
How much does the program cost?
There is no initial fee to consultants.
In many cases, the business model involves the partner originating an assignment and earning his usual fees from the engagement. If the engagement involves the sale of NAG software licenses to the client, the partner earns a fee on the sale of licenses. If the engagement involves the sale of NAG consulting services, the partner earns a fee on the sale of NAG services.
In other cases, if NAG originates an assignment for the partner, the partner would pay NAG a fee on the NAG-originated business. The partner would earn fees on the sale of any NAG software licenses or services to the client.
