In 2010 Intershop employed ChannelCreator’s services to establish a strong market presence for Intershop in the UK and Ireland, to include a successfully functioning sales and marketing presence, and a robust and influential partner network. One of the main reasons to employ ChannelCreator is their proven expertise in Enterprise E-Commerce and specifically in depth Intershop KnowHow. ChannelCreator more than excelled at this substantial task, delivering some of Intershop’s most prominent customers both within and outside the UK, impressive revenue streams, and a fruitful partner ecosystem with best of breed System Integrators in the industry on a Europeanan level.
ChannelCreator’s focussed and expert approach raised awareness of the Intershop platform to a point where it became necessary to set up a permanent office in London, manned by a full-time team, to continue and invest in the outstanding foundation that ChannelCreator have laid. I would not hesitate to recommend ChannelCreator’s services to anyone looking to achieve tangible success within a limited timeframe in a very busy marketplace.
I have had the pleasure of working with Matt to help Hostopia build out our European operations. His calm, intelligent, and hard working approach with clients has helped us expand rapidly in this region. He has worked very closely with a number of partners including BT, Vodafone, T-mobile and Colt and he goes well beyond what has been required of him to ensure they are successful. With Matt at the helm, success follows.
ChannelCreator was instrumental in setting up our sales channel in the UK and Ireland. Within 1 year we had established partnerships with 80% of the SAP Business One resellers in our target market and had built an impressive revenue stream which continues to grow to this day. Our lead consultant has since transitioned to become a valued ongoing member of the Boyum IT team. I would recommend ChannelCreator to anyone looking to establish a sales base in the UK and Ireland with minimum expenditure: their expertise is unmatched, their consultants are professional, efficient and driven, and their process is well thought out, transparent and entirely effective.
Matt and colleagues at ChannelCreator exemplify the technology business’s “Gateway to Europe”. North American tech companies seeking to establish a market in Europe have no idea of the pain and business risk they face with a naive D-I-Y approach. They need to seriously look at hiring Matt Ball and associates. Matt’s firm helped Hostopia staff up key operators such as project managers, account management representatives and business development executives. They custom-tailored a plan to meet our fledgling budget by utilizing fractional employees. The formula was perfect for our needs and not only helped acquire but anchored numerous strategic clients – one of which we were at serious risk of losing without Matt’s diligent turn-around work. My only regret? That my bosses at the time did not approve doubling Matt’s mandate as we would have easily quadrupled the results.
ChannelCreator were just awesome for us. As a little startup coming to London they hooked us up quickly with a number of companies that are our largest partners to this day. They understood our offering quickly, and the fact that we got to tap into the network and expertise of the whole team and not just our lead consultant was instrumental.
Matt is a highly creative, intelligent and personable entrepreneur who immediately inspires confidence in those he deals with. I enjoyed working with Matt and his team at ChannelCreator, and would recommend him and his team for any business development and marketing endeavours.
Elias has been working with the team at Huzu (via ChannelCreator) since the middle of 2008 to help transform us into a nimble, partner focused white label software company. His extensive experience with early stage companies in the areas of strategy, product development and especially market/sales development have helped to put us on the map. Thanks to his efforts we have some key customer wins and a blueprint for building our partner channel (primarily digital media agencies). His wealth of social media domain knowledge has been invaluable. He is highly experienced, very personable, hands-on and possesses an extensive personal network. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
