Portland, OR – October 17, 2012 – Janrain, the leading provider of User Management solutions for the social web, today unveiled its comprehensive new Fusion Partner Program, which greatly expands and enhances its previous partner program. Key components of the new program include an increased focus on partner sales enablement – providing in-depth technical and sales training, demand generation programs and co-marketing, sales team alignment and collaboration and financial incentives for program partners.
“Janrain has always understood the importance of partnering with other best-of-breed solution providers to ensure our clients can maximize the value of our technology, regardless of their industry segment or other technology choices.” said Larry Drebes, CEO of Janrain. “The introduction of the Fusion Partner Program clearly demonstrates our commitment to both our partners and our customers.”
Janrain already has more than thirty highly-respected technology partners and key integrations in categories such as customer relationship management, content management, ecommerce, email marketing, web analytics, web hosting, mobile, game mechanics, ratings and reviews, commenting, chat, and content personalization. These partnerships typically fall into one of three different partnership categories, including integration partners (companies such as ExactTarget, Badgeville, and Oracle), and OEM partners (eg Echo, Ning, Acquia Bazaarvoice).
“ExactTarget is focused on empowering our customers to create a unified view of each consumer – across all channels, to drive customer engagement, automate marketing, increase sales and improve return on marketing investment,” said Scott Roth, senior director of global field and partner marketing, ExactTarget. “We are proud to partner with companies like Janrain, who deliver superior technology that enables our joint clients to thrive.”

SI’s and Value Added Resellers (VARs) can leverage the Fusion Partner Program to extend those systems’ functionality with that of the Janrain User Management Platform. Finally, leading digital agencies can take advantage of the program components to build creative campaigns and deliver valuable user experiences by leveraging Janrain’s highly customizable solutions.
