Datacom has been awarded Gold status in the Adobe Solution Partner Programme building on a decade-long partnership focused on creating rich, engaging digital experiences for companies and their customers.
Datacom’s Associate Director Digital Platforms Elias Billeh says the Gold partnership and specialisation status recognises the expertise of the team and their commitment to understanding what is possible with Adobe technologies.
“We’ve shown that we’re a trusted partner that can deliver at scale in Australia and New Zealand. We’ve helped companies in a range of industries - from banking to primary industries, insurance to retail - to really change the way they engage with and serve their customers.”
Elias says being awarded Gold status in the Adobe Solution Partner Programme is also a reflection of the great customer projects the team has been privileged to work on.
Adobe’s Senior Director, APAC Partner Sales, Philip Cronin congratulated Datacom on achieving Gold status, commenting on the strength of their work with customers.
“Gold Partner status is testament to Datacom’s proven capabilities and highly successful customer implementations. I look forward to continuing our work with Datacom to drive further customer success.”
Adobe’s New Zealand Country Manager Jason Satherley says Datacom is the first New Zealand-based partner to achieve Gold level partnership and specialisation status with Adobe Experience Manager.
“With customer experience expectations soaring during Covid-19, this recognition underscores Datacom’s strategic and technical expertise, together with their commitment to helping our mutual customers deliver more personalised and relatable experiences.”
The Adobe Solution Partner Programme is designed for companies that put Adobe technologies to work through implementations, creative services, technological innovations, solution development, system integration, and strategic thought leadership.
There are five levels of partnership and Gold Partners are companies that have developed specialised Adobe practices in multiple Adobe Experience Cloud applications.
Over the past two years, Elias says Adobe’s shift to consumption-based pricing has made its cloud technologies really accessible to small and medium enterprises, and simple to scale for larger companies.
“It is really scalable to customers’ needs as they are only paying for the capacity they need, and they don’t have to be a big corporate to take advantage of Adobe’s leading platform in delivering personalised digital experiences.”
Datacom was also the first company outside of the US to adopt Adobe's Experience Manager as a cloud service - giving the team additional insights into how it can be used to engage with customers and deliver better experiences.
