Cable-Tec Expo -- Network services and consumer experience pioneer Plume today announced a new go-to-market model for channel partners and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs). Communications Service Providers (CSPs) can now make a one-time purchase of a fully-inclusive bundle combining both the latest OpenSync-certified consumer premises equipment (CPE) and subscriptions to Plume's award-winning consumer services. The package is accompanied by Plume's proactive support, operations, and marketing suites.
The new single pricing model brings additional operational options to service providers including simplified and streamlined procurement through a single contract signed with a preferred channel partner or ODM, and the flexibility to recognize the expenditure as CAPEX over the lifetime of the subscriber.
Plume's existing channel and ODM partner Evolution Digital, is the first to offer the new model to service providers throughout the Americas. As an OpenSync Certified Partner, Evolution Digital will also have early access to software releases, speeding up time to market for new features and CPE upgrades.
Under this new model, channel partners and ODMs—including Evolution Digital—can offer Plume's comprehensive portfolio of residential, very-small-business (VSB), and multi-dwelling-unit (MDU) suites of services:
HomePass: Brings together advanced cyber-security, in-home motion sensing, device management, and parental controls in one place, building on the foundation of the most widely deployed advanced managed WiFi service in the world to deliver optimal internet experiences.
WorkPass: Bespoke built to meet the connectivity, productivity, and security needs of VSBs. In addition to powerful front-end services, including Plume Adaptive WiFi, WorkPass brings unique operational insights and intelligence to help very small business owners thrive—without the cost and complexity of other products designed for medium-sized businesses and large enterprises.
Uprise: A unique, comprehensive solution offering property-wide seamless connectivity, secure access controls, and property management for the tenants and owners of MDUs. Whether tenants are exclusively residential or a mix of residential and small businesses, Uprise provides them with personalized experiences, cyber and physical security, and unified communications.
HomePass, WorkPass, and Uprise are integrated with Plume's Haystack Support Suite which helps service providers' support teams take the necessary proactive steps to monitor, predict, diagnose, and rapidly resolve issues, leading to fewer support calls, happier customers, and reduced churn.
Our growing partnership with Plume is a testament to Evolution Digital's dedication to bringing cutting-edge technology and cost-effective solutions to the market, said Marc Cohen, Chief Revenue Officer from Evolution Digital. We are excited to offer CSPs across North and South America a cost-optimized and efficient way to enhance their offerings with Plume's cloud-managed services.
"This expanded partnership with Evolution Digital provides CSPs with a one-stop solution for deploying Plume's services and OpenSync-enabled hardware," said Niall Robinson, Head of Sales for the Americas from Plume. "At a time of high demand, we are consistently looking at ways to streamline our commercial processes and ensure that service providers can deliver new consumer experiences as fast and as cost-effectively as possible."

JFrog Limited has unveiled a novel global channel program during its inaugural Partner Day event. This program facilitates customer integration of JFrog solutions through third-party entities while concurrently seeking to establish fresh revenue streams for both JFrog and its collaborative partners.
The JFrog Global Partner Program structures itself around a co-selling approach, avoiding using a pyramid or tiered partner program, such as gold, silver, and bronze, which would require substantial initial investments. The method enables partners to gain knowledge and experience by closely collaborating with JFrog's solutions engineering, professional services, marketing, and support teams. This 'customer-first' strategy allows partners to establish and expand their practices while expediting their time-to-revenue.
Tali Notman, Chief Revenue Officer at JFrog, mentioned that JFrog is rapidly expanding its presence in the enterprise sector, offering both on-premises and cloud solutions. The company's foundation is built on robust community support, and it has established itself as a pioneer in the DevOps and security fields. She further expressed enthusiasm about the future, anticipating how JFrog's growth will continue to flourish through collaboration with trusted third-party partners.
Additionally, Kelly Hartman, Senior Vice President of Global Channels and Alliances at JFrog, articulated the company's objective of delivering value to partners through access to their solutions and expertise, which has garnered trust from numerous Fortune 100 companies worldwide.
Meanwhile, JFrog's Partner Program offers partners a range of options to create customer value, including co-selling, reselling, or selling to US government agencies, each supported by dedicated pre- and post-sales programs. These program options are currently available, with an easy-to-use partner portal for streamlined engagement. Additionally, the program introduces new incentives and deal structures to enhance revenue generation, assigns dedicated partner managers for seamless onboarding, provides engaged support from JFrog's sales and technical teams for qualified opportunities, offers curated sales and specialized training on the JFrog Platform, furnishes co-branded marketing kits to stimulate interest and create new opportunities, and grants access to an expanded resource library of product and sales enablement assets.
JFrog Ltd. is one of the leading software companies with a mission to revolutionize software delivery by realizing its 'Liquid Software' vision. Its Software Supply Chain Platform acts as a unified system of record, empowering organizations to efficiently build, manage, and securely distribute software, ensuring its availability, traceability, and tamper-proof nature. With integrated security features, JFrog helps identify, protect, and remediate against threats and vulnerabilities.

Mindmatrix has enhanced the learning management module within its partner enablement platform. The upgraded LMS is an integral component of Mindmatrix's Bridge platform, which stands as the foremost partner enablement platform within the marketplace.
This enhancement will produce a more robust learning management system (LMS) to enhance partner learning, training, and certification effectiveness. Bridge's LMS module provides organizations with the capability to establish learning curricula, compile course catalogs, and develop diverse training as well as educational materials directly within the platform. Subsequently, these assets can be distributed to their sales teams and channel partners. Moreover, it empowers companies to configure live classrooms or instructor-led virtual training sessions.
Bridge's comprehensive LMS integrates with external learning experiences, including web-based training sessions, virtual classrooms, and even classroom sessions facilitated by instructors. This LMS module also closely aligns with partner incentives, scoring mechanisms, and recognition protocols, such as badges and awards. Consequently, organizations can acknowledge exceptional performances by their esteemed partners.
The LMS offers a diverse array of reports to both instructors (representing companies) and students (comprising salespeople and channel partners). At the corporate level, individuals can access reports that include sign-up statistics, attendee records, candidate outcomes, instances of non-attendance, pending evaluations, and registrants with suspended participation.
The upgraded module will integrate with Bridge's data and analytics, enabling companies to assess training effectiveness and enhance partner learning experiences. Furthermore, Mindmatrix's integrated visibility tools and metrics assist in assessing educational coursework. This integration with analytics helps companies identify recurring challenges and patterns, such as lead loss, prompting them to take corrective actions or offer further coaching and training for improved results.

It offers a unique, fully integrated platform known as Bridge, which unifies and empowers various aspects of business operations, spanning direct and indirect sales, marketing efforts, alliances, and partner ecosystems.
