High Praise for PerficientSep 7, 2019
Perficient is the first Partner in the SPP to earn Marketo Specialization. Hear tips on powering-up your practice from a top Partner.
Congratulations to Perficient for earning the first Marketo Specialization in the Solution Partner Program (SPP)! A Gold-level partner, Perficient continues to raise the bar in delivering incomparable information technology, management consulting and creative capabilities by empowering their team with the right technical expertise.
We chatted with Andrew Hull, General Manager of Marketing Technology Solutions at Perficient, who shared Perficient’s journey as a longtime Adobe Partner, as well as a few tips around building a successful Adobe solution practice.
General Manager (MarTech Solutions),
- When did Perficient first join the Solution Partner Program, and what would you consider are the greatest benefits?
We have been partners for many years -- I believe since 2011. We became a Premier (now Gold) in 2016. The greatest benefit is the online self-paced learning that is available. We have all of our newly hired sales people do this so that they are armed with enough Adobe knowledge to look for net new opportunities. Additionally, the marketing that is available for the sellers to use is amazing.
- Congratulations on earning the first Adobe Specialization in Marketo Engage! What inspired your practice to explore Marketo Specialization?
As an eight-year partner of Marketo and 2017 Digital Service Partner of the Year, driving towards the Adobe Specialization in Marketo Engage was a natural next step for us. Over the years, we have delivered exceptional end-to-end customer experiences and driven new growth for organizations who leverage Marketo. With over forty consultants singularly focused on helping clients succeed with Marketo, we want to ensure our expertise is visible for those considering an expert partner willing to guide them along their marketing maturity with Marketo.
- Perficient is specialized in multiple Adobe Experience Cloud solutions. Can your share a few tips and best practices on getting specialized?
Build deep expertise in your specialization area and ensure you have proven delivery excellence backed up by happy, referenceable clients!
- Can you describe how Adobe Certifications and Specializations have impacted your practice?
From an employee perspective, Adobe Certifications help validate all the dedicated work and expertise our employees build in their specialization area. We have exceptional consultants and they should be called out for their level of expertise. From a client perspective, the Adobe Certifications and Specializations help credentialize companies, like Perficient, who take a comprehensive view of high-quality Adobe services engagements.
- We have a lot of new Marketo and Magento partners joining the SPP and expanding their practices across Adobe Experience Cloud. Do you have any advice for those partners looking to build up their practices?
Focus first on delivering awesome client experiences via your Adobe engagements. Once you build the necessary consulting staff capable of delivery world-class services, the process of certifications and client references will fall into place.
