We’ve created it to make it as easy as possible for our M2M partners to provide customers with the best M2M solutions on the market, with Vodafone’s input.
Through the programme partners can:
You will be assigned a dedicated Vodafone Partner Manager to work with throughout your partnership. He or she will be available to chat to online and also face-to-face. The Partner Programme website enables the exchange of both written and verbal information with your Partner Manager.
Once you’ve signed a Non Disclosure Agreement confidential information from Vodafone will be available to you in password-protected sections online, according to your needs.
Technical and commercial support from Vodafone specialists will be available to you, supported by the relevant technical or commercial Vodafone representative.
The M2M Developer Programme provides access to developers, SIs, technologists, teachers, academics, and everyone in between who wants to get Machine to Machine-type devices connected to Vodafone's extensive global cellular network. As a member of the Partner Programme you’ll receive preferential, advanced access to the tools and trials, and also be provided with information under NDA online.
The Vodafone Test & Innovation Centre in Germany will test and certify your wireless modules and terminals to help you ensure they comply with Vodafone global requirements and test criteria. The end result is your technology signed with a Vodafone certificate, demonstrating to our customers that you are a solid partner developing innovative M2M solutions with Vodafone.
Access to the terminal test and innovation centre will be available to Partner Programme members, with preferential access provided. Results of the testing will be made available to customers to view and analyse.
Through the Partner Programme, not only will your Vodafone compliance test results be displayed to customers, but they will also be able to search for and find details of your offering through a searchable database. Information available to existing and potential Vodafone customers will include your name, description of your solution, market sector and any other supporting documentation that you’ve have uploaded into your Partner Programme account. Customers will also be able to easily contact you via Vodafone if interested in discussing a project further. Plus, there will be a ‘featured partner’ section on the website together with case studies showcasing integrated solutions.
Through your allocated Partner Manager you’ll have the opportunity of attending and initiating working sessions with Vodafone to discuss existing and potential development opportunities.
Through the online database of Vodafone Global M2M Partners you will be able to search and find other partners with whom you could collaborate. We’re happy to put you in touch with any fellow programme members you’re interested in contacting – just let us know.
If you are, then we will have included you with the programme already. All of the members of the Partner Programme are listed within the database here.
