a leading platform powering customer success for over 450
consumer-focused businesses, today announced its ClutchConnectTM
Partnership Program. The program is designed to create a framework for
collaboration between Clutch and a broad range of partner types. At
launch, the ClutchConnect Partnership Program includes more than 50
partners, including RetailNext, Direct Connect, AJB and many more.
The Clutch Customer Success Management (CSM) platform empowers
consumer-focused businesses like Godiva Chocolatier, Swatch, Ruum, Life
is Good, Pandora Jewelry and The Body Shop to connect with, understand
and engage their highest value customers. The relationships driven
through the ClutchConnect Partnership Program enable businesses to
connect to the CSM platform through over 350 points of integration. By
integrating with traditional point-of-sale and e-commerce data, along
with consumer social and mobile activity, brands are now armed to
generate campaigns that are more targeted, automated and dynamic.
“Our platform streamlines all phases of the customer lifecycle, creating
lasting success with a brand’s customers,” said Jenna Flateman Posner,
vice president of strategic partnerships, Clutch. “By growing our
partner network, we’re able to grow adoption of our platform, increase
revenue opportunities for our partners, and offer brands a new way to
rapidly enhance customer engagement.”
The ClutchConnect Partnership Program offers a wide range of benefits to
ensure the mutual success of Clutch and its partners through four
primary relationships to best align Clutch with partners’ products,
services and business needs:
Strategic Partnership: This is a customized relationship based on
a unique integration opportunity. Strategic Partnerships are typically
reserved for point-of-sale technology companies, middleware providers,
payment processors, and others. Current Clutch integrations include
Micros, Hybris and Mobeam to name a few.
Referral Partnership: This partner is incentivized to secure
meetings with members of their client roster that may find value in the
Clutch CSM platform. They play an integral role in closing business and
identifying new potential clients to pursue together. RetailNext,
Zuppler, and Linkable Networks have all recently been instrumental in
referring new business to Clutch.
Reseller Partnership: An industry ally responsible for reselling
the Clutch offering to their client base. Clutch arms the partner with
sales tools and agreements, accepts order forms, and is responsible
for processing and supporting the sale and implementation. Direct
Connect is the most recent addition to the Clutch Reseller program (see

priority for every merchant,” said Matt Clyne, President of Direct

they are our partners in innovation. Together, Direct Connect and Clutch
will continue moving up market with improved tools, broader reach and a
partnership that will bring new and exciting solutions to merchants

personalized way and in real-time,” explained Maria Fernandez Guajardo,
