*To be considered for a listing in the directory Cin7 requires you to refer at least three shared customers. After meeting the requirements, you will be sent an invite to be listed in the Partner Directory. For the specific requirements, please reach out to your Partner Manager.
These partners refer leads to Cin7. Referral Partners perform the lead generation service role by providing leads for new clients to Cin7.
Certified Integrator (CI) partners recommend our product to their client base, but use the software implementation as a business opportunity to quickly grow their own revenue and profitability.
Certified Integrator partners also recommend our product to their client base but use the on-boarding project and other services (e.g. Cin7 integration with other systems) as a business opportunity. A Cin7 CI can perform three distinct service roles:
Development Partners are technology systems providers serving SME markets with specialist professional services, business functions, cloud services, and/or application integration capabilities.
Development Partners (DP) provide a solution, service, or an app that integrates into Cin7 (via API) and complements Cin7 functionality for Cin7 subscribers. DPs may also do custom build and integration work via API protocols for external functionality, which is out of scope for Cin7. DPs are expected to extend all support for their products and services directly to the customer which includes but not limited to quoting, delivering of services, and post-live support.
DPs are eligible for referral commission if a lead is referred to Cin7 and the customer signs up with Cin7.
To ensure the best possible experience for all members participating in the Cin7 Partner Program, we have established guidelines for participation. These community guidelines are to 1be used in conjunction with all contracts and agreements provided and signed when joining the program.
We are thrilled to have you in the Cin7 Partner Program. We aim to cultivate a positive, rewarding experience that propels your business and clients to unimaginable success. To preserve and protect our partner community, we outline formal expectations, program benefits, and codes of conduct to make this the best program it can be. The following is what you can expect from Cin7 when joining the Partner Program (and what we expect from you!).
All partners will be opted in to all email communications in order to be in sync with all product and company updates. It is suggested to add the email@example.com to your contact list in order for email communications not be filtered into the spam folder. If a partner opts out of Cin7 content, they will not receive any important updates, newsletters, and communications.
The Cin7 Omni Partner Portal contains confidential information – appropriate use of the confidential and proprietary information should be treated as such. Partners are to be cognizant of the content they are able to share. All confidential information is labeled as such.
The Content & Resources tab in the Cin7 Omni Partner Portal is designed to educate new partners on Cin7 Omni workflows, integrations, and other software training. The factsheets, playbooks, whitepapers, at-a-glance documents, and guides are for internal use when noted, unlike the case studies, which we encourage you to share with your clients and network. All customer facing documents will be labeled as such.
All customer leads from any partner should be logged in the Cin7 Partner Portal (for both Core and Omni). This allows for tracking of the leads and assistance from our internal teams. If you need any assistance, please contact your Partner Manager. Please note: you must register all leads in the Cin7 Partner Portal to be eligible for commission.
It is expected that all members of our community are to treat others with respect in regards to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability, inappropriate or harassing photos and filming, physical content, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Cin7 encourages partners to become immersed in our products and help us reach our goal of providing the best IMS solution on the market for product sellers. We welcome private, constructive feedback with the goal to enhance product features and improve user experience. Our partners have a unique, confidential view and influence into our product roadmap which requires discretion in public facing materials. Cin7 does not permit public dissemination of criticism and negative feedback from partners while a part of the partner program.

Our brand provides a platform to help create a great first impression with our customers and partners. These guidelines are designed to help you to execute our brand precisely and consistently for maximum impact.
Our partners are highly encouraged to list our logos on their integrations and partner pages. In order to be listed on our website or directory, placement of our logo is required in locations on our partner sites and collateral. Each brand kit is reserved for partners of that product (i.e. Cin7 Core partners should use the Cin7 Core brand kit not the Cin7 Orderhive brand kit). Partners are discouraged from using our logos and brand on unapproved co-marketing activities and it is best practice to use our logo according to the brand guidelines in any context (social media, PR announcements, blog posts, etc.).

One of the most exciting benefits of being a Cin7 partner is the opportunity to co-market to serve more product sellers and grow your business. Co-marketing at Cin7 is designed to craft valuable and useful content for our joint audiences by sharing the responsibilities and benefits that are involved in marketing campaigns. Before any co-marketing takes place, it is required that partners meet the eligibility requirements to pursue the requested activity, receive approval from their partner manager, and partner marketing team. No co-marketing activities should be without approval and review from Cin7 and the product family partner team.
Cin7 can supplement and/or lead co-marketing efforts. Our main goal is to create educational and thought-leadership materials that serve product sellers to enhance their inventory management practices and tool set. If your team has the expertise and resources to work with us on a co-marketing campaign please review the requirements section.
Before approving a co-marketing project, the following is required:
Cin7 has in-house staff who can provide technical support, on-boarding, and key account management to the partner and clients. We can, in certain cases, also provide onsite professional services for consultation. This partnership approach yields stronger relationships, increased customer referrals, and improved customer satisfaction.
Please note that, as a partner, you are not permitted to share your Partner Managers contact information with your customers in regards to support tickets. If you need a ticket to be escalated, you may let your Partner Manager know, but please keep in mind that the Partner Managers are not support staff and cannot assist in technical help for your customers. If you are engaging your Partner Manager for an escalation on a customer’s ticket, please provide the ticket number(s) in question and a short description of the issue for quicker resolution.
