About Us

Our Story

We are driven by a passion for helping businesses fully realize the value of their relationships with partners and employees. 

In 2009 we identified that technology businesses were struggling to get the most out of partnership programs with major vendors. Maintaining compliance with certification requirements was a challenge, and partners often failed to capitalize on the rebates and incentives vendors were offering. This was bad news for partners, who were leaving deals and revenue behind, and bad news for vendors, whose incentive programs were not always achieving their objectives.

Drawing on our extensive experience with Cisco and other major vendor partner programs, we developed V6 Fusion, a software service that fully automates partnership management. It gives partners total control and real-time visibility of their partner program compliance.

As the market has shifted towards long-term sustainable annuity-based commerce, our offerings have evolved to encompass the entire deal lifecycle. Our solutions include an incentives module, deal optimization, and customer experience (CX) solutions, all supported by a team of experts who offer managed and advisory services.

Our latest unique solution enables organizations to track 12,000 certifications across more than 960 vendors in one platform. It gives businesses real-time insight into the skills and capabilities of their workforce, providing instant visibility over vendor compliance status and alerting management teams when and where action and training investment is needed.

V6 Solutions deliver improved management control, greater visibility and efficiency, reducing risk and maximizing income potential. The result? Improved profitability and more agile, sustainable business.

We work with some of the largest multi-national technology providers in the industry, alongside respected in-country systems integrators. We have a proven and measurable track record of improving their business.
