VE’s Successful Partnership With Reseller in Germany
VirtualEmployee.com has been partnering with resellers abroad who have been successful in reselling our service to clients in several other countries. One such successful partnership has been with one of our resellers in Germany. And it threw up some very interesting facts as well that has revealed just how much in demand outsourcing really is, never mind what the critics have been saying about it over the years.
Johannes Burns from Germany has been in a partnership with VirtualEmployee.com to act as a reseller of our services in Germany since 2009. His outsourcing solutions consultant company has sold VirtualEmployee.com’s services to several companies in Germany. This has been a mutually beneficial partnership for several years, with Johannes successfully reselling our service to many of his clients based in Germany. Johannes resold Software, Web and Mobile Apps Development Virtual Employees to his clients – and with gratifying results.
Johannes says, “Our experience with VirtualEmployee.com has been very good. The companies for whom we rented employees from VirtualEmployee.com worked with them for years without any trouble for us. The employees were very motivated and reliable. The technical equipment was never a problem. There were never any blackouts, etc. We have enjoyed a very good business relationship with virtual employees in the last few years and we look forward to continue this.”
Johannes resold VirtualEmployee.com’s services to a client named Felix Bopp, providing him with a PHP Developer. For Bopp it was a highly rewarding experience.
Felix Bopp, “We have been working with VirtualEmployee.com for many years and I have to say that we are very happy. We worked with virtual employees on various projects and for each project VirtualEmployee.com found us the developer with the right skills. VirtualEmployee.com takes care of the hardware and the development environment so that we were able to start very fast with our projects. The service of VirtualEmployee.com is very excellent and the communication very fast and smooth.”
This partnership highlights three main issues:
1. It shows how cost effective our service is; Johannes resold our service, which effectively means that he added a fixed monthly fee on top of the fixed monthly fee that we charge. Despite the hiked charges, clients in Germany bought our service. This in itself is evidence and a reflection of the fact that the margin of cost-effectiveness of our service is huge.
2. The most interesting aspect was the language issue. Neither the Germans nor the Indians spoke English as their first language. In both countries, English was the second language. However, both the German clients and their Virtual Employees communicated with each other in English. Despite English being a second language for both concerned, outsourcing was hugely successful – a testimony to how good Indians speak English.
3. The best part is that this successful partnership model that we have with Johannes can be easily replicated with all our clients. Most of our clients are entrepreneurs and obviously would have plenty of contacts. Infact, each client is a potential reseller and stands to have a mutually highly beneficial partnership with us.
The scope for such partnerships is obviously huge.
