Bottomline’s partner program empowers partners worldwide to market, sell, design, implement, and support Bottomline solutions.

At Bottomline, we’re committed to building successful, long-term relationships that deliver business rewards for all parties. The Partner Network program offers a range of options to address each partner’s unique needs and business objectives to develop and grow profitable, sustainable businesses.

Our partner portfolio includes the following types of partner companies: 

Solution Partners

Solution Partners leverage their domain expertise and incorporate Bottomline’s technology within their offering (e.g. consulting, implementation and system integration services, software offerings, etc.), providing the partner with a more compelling value proposition. The industry knowledge and domain expertise of our Solution Partners assures clients that they are receiving the highest quality technology offerings, support, and professional services available. These partners generally include Value Added Resellers, Service Providers, Consultants, and System Integrators.

OEM Partners

Bottomline offers a host of opportunities for hardware and software vendors to embed and/or integrate Bottomline’s proven, best-of-breed technology within their ERP, financial, healthcare or other application, providing partners with a more compelling value proposition and stronger competitive position. OEM partners often include organisations such as Independent Software Vendors (ERP, Finance, etc.), and Printing Services.

Strategic Alliances

Bottomline collaborates with leading technology, software, and services organisations to develop joint go to market initiatives, provide products designed to run on the partner's software platforms, and/or closely integrate with the partner's application offerings. In addition, Bottomline may embed the Strategic Alliance partner's technology in a Bottomline solution. Examples include Microsoft Dynamics and Oracle JDE. Leveraging the strength of these alliances speeds time to productivity and creates richer solutions for our joint clients.

Banking Channel Partners

Bottomline works with leading banks and financial institutions to help them expand their portfolio of payments and cash management related services allowing them win and grow commercial customers of all sizes. There are multiple relationship types available to Banking Channel Partners including embedding the Bottomline product into the banks payment solution and/or referring clients directly to Bottomline for the appropriate Bottomline solution.
