Here at Braze, we’re big believers in the power of integrated, best-in-class customer engagement technology ecosystems because we’ve seen firsthand what the right marketing tech stack can do for our customers—and, more importantly, what it can do for our customers’ customers. That's why we launched our Braze Alloys program in 2018 and introduced Braze Alloys Solutions Partners in 2019: To support true connected engagement by allowing our customers to build out ecosystems designed for their unique needs and use cases. That, in turn, has made it even easier for brands to leverage Braze in tandem with other leading technologies and positively impact the customer experience in significant, meaningful ways.
As we've continued to scale our best-of-breed technology partnerships and infrastructure, Braze customers have asked for more partner integrations. At the same time, we’ve seen a growing number of technology companies asking to become official Braze Alloys partners. We’ve taken those requests seriously—and today I’m pleased to announce the next expansion of Braze Alloys with the launch of our new Independent Software Vendor (ISV) program, designed to meet this heightened demand and take customer engagement to the next level.
Everything You Need to Know About the Braze Alloys ISV Program
When you hear people talk about ISVs, they’re describing individuals and organizations focused on developing, marketing, and selling software solutions that run in connection with third-party software platforms. Here at Braze, we’re inviting ISVs of all sizes and focused on all industries to partner with us to develop integrations that will seamlessly work with our existing infrastructure.
In practical terms, the launch of our ISV program means that any of the technology partners or vendors that Braze customers currently work with (or would like to use) can easily apply to take part in our program and seamlessly connect their technology to our platform. By expanding our partnerships, we're allowing customers to satisfy additional use cases and greatly increase the number of technologies that can be used in tandem with the Braze platform. That's good for us and it's good for our customers, too.
"As a Braze ISV Partner, we are excited to complete our bidirectional integration by building into Braze as a Currents partner," said Matt Gray, VP of Global Partnerships, Tealium. "This allows for different use cases that will provide value by enhancing customer engagement programs for new and existing customers. Through the ISV program, we expect that accelerated revenue growth and new customer wins will be our next normal.”
The Benefits of the Braze Alloys ISV Program for Partners
