Before joining Xerox, I was a customer that participated within the Xerox Premier Partners Program. Now having the opportunity to manage our Premier Partners, I wanted to develop an online portal to help partners network with like providers, understand best practices from around the world and provide a channel for demand generation to our Premier Partners for their services.

Building on my own experience as a Xerox Premier Partner as well as feedback from our Premier Partners Global Advisory members, this portal has come to life!


More than 800 leading print providers from 48 countries can connect with each other in a peer-to-peer social platform that is an open web forum where they can share ideas and educational opportunities, and connect with current and potential customers to help them grow business and capture new revenue opportunities.

One of my favorite features is how print buyers, marketers and creative agencies can search for leading print providers based on criteria such as location, applications, variable data and finishing capabilities, certifications, and services.
There is also the ability to access Premier Partners from mobile devices such iPhone, Blackberry and Droid— The application integrates Google map technology, guiding the buyer to the selected Premier Partner. We are helping to direct business to our customers.

Another exciting component of the program is a section dedicated to Xerox companies and business partners, including GMC and XMPie, where Premier Partners can learn about software trials, and other exclusive event opportunities.

Providing the ability for our customers to connect with each other online has been a consideration of ours for a while, and something many customers have asked us to do. I want to encourage our Xerox Premier Partners to visit and join our new Xerox Premier Partner Global Network. And if you are interested in becoming a Xerox Premier Partner, visit the portal for details and the membership form.

I hope you enjoy this new Xerox Premier Partner Global Network and I’d love to hear your thoughts!
