Intermedia Debuts New Integrations With QuickBooks, Salesforce and ConnectWise, Linking the Four Leading Platforms for MSPs and VARs

By Integrating Its Partner Portal With Its Partners' Most Popular CRM, Accounting and Professional Services Automation Tools, Intermedia Slashes the Complexity of Reselling Cloud Services

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/18/14 -- Intermedia partners can now integrate their Partner Portal with QuickBooks, Salesforce and ConnectWise to grow their cloud services footprint without adding to their accounting and sales overhead.

As the world's largest one-stop shop for cloud IT services and business applications, Intermedia has more than 14,000 MSPs and VARs in its industry leading Partner Program. Now, in addition to controlling their own pricing, bundling, branding and customer relationships, Intermedia partners can streamline their workflows with integrations between their four main business platforms:

  • Salesforce - The world's largest provider of customer relationship management software with more than 100,000 customers

  • QuickBooks - The No. 1 cloud accounting solution for small businesses with more than 1 million customers

  • ConnectWise - The No. 1 business management platform worldwide with more than 80,000 users

  • Intermedia's Partner Portal - The single point of control for Intermedia partners to manage their businesses' services, and collective 350,000+ users

"We leveraged these integrations to effortlessly bring our Intermedia services into our existing business processes," said Jon Matero, president and CEO of Network Heroes, an Intermedia partner. "We maintain a single system of record for all our CRM and accounting needs, and keep our accounting and sales teams more focused and more productive. It's going to save us hundreds of man-hours this year."

With the Salesforce integration, partners can:

  • Sync customer account data from the Intermedia Partner Portal to Salesforce
  • Sync their Intermedia plan pricing with Salesforce pricing books
  • Track product usage to easily spot selling opportunities
  • Easily generate quotes without having to manually copy and paste data from the Partner Portal
  • Create new accounts directly in Salesforce and automatically synchronize to the Partner Portal

With the QuickBooks & ConnectWise integrations, partners can:

  • Simplify their billing processes and reduce the amount of time spent generating invoices
  • Export their catalog of Intermedia products and services
  • Ensure product and customer usage data in the Intermedia Partner Portal are automatically updated in their billing system
  • Eliminate the need to manually update billing agreements (exclusive to ConnectWise integration)
  • Set a schedule to automatically generate estimates (exclusive to QuickBooks integration)

Intermedia is committed to making it simple for partners to run their businesses and profit from managing cloud services. These integration apps are being offered free of charge via Intermedia's Partner Portal. Each is designed to take less than 30 minutes to set up.

"Intermedia is expanding its ecosystem of services to benefit not only partners, but administrators and end-users as well," said Michael Gold, president of Intermedia. "Our QuickBooks, Salesforce and ConnectWise integrations allow us to become a more central and seamless business partner. In 2014, we will continue to offer new tools to adapt our services to how our partners and customers do business."
