Sam Allert – Reckon Managing Director

Maximise your partner benefits

First, decide what’s important to you and your business. You can then leverage the training, product and marketing resources to get the most out of your partnership.

Training/Product Resources

As a partner, you will have exclusive access to a number of exclusive training and product resources.

View more details

Products and Training

As a partner, you’ll receive information and training on Reckon products before they are released to the general public. This can help you learn about products and identify sales opportunities for new product releases. Reckon delivers training face to face, online and webinar training.

Internal-use Software

We want our partners to benefit from using our software, so we provide free internal-use licences as part of the partner program. Eligible partners will have access to the Reckon Accounts Edition software which provides accountants and bookkeepers with the ability to toggle between different versions of Reckon Accounts software. This makes it easy to help clients on different versions.

Training Material

Eligible partners interested in providing training can access packs which include course slides, evaluation forms, handouts, work books and more. These will help make your training course professional and consistent.

Promotion/Networking

You will have numerous promotion/networking opportunities when you decide to partner with Reckon.

Collaboration opportunities
Eligible partners are given the opportunity to collaborate with Reckon on joint marketing initiatives such as events and promotions. Reckon can provide assistance and support throughout any initiative such as help with invitation design, broadcast, catering and arranging a Reckon presenter.

Partner events
We sponsor various events, such as partner conferences, workshops, briefings, product launches, and focus groups. These can be on a regional or specialisation basis for eligible partners. Generally there is no fee to attend a partner-only event although certain events may be fee-based.

Partner directory
Eligible partners can list their partner services on our web-based partner directory. The partner directory helps your potential customers find out what services you provide and get in touch with you. You can update your own partner information at any time.
