At Phase 3, we believe customer success is achieved by working together with clients and solution providers. We can support clients in finding the right technology and our partners are introduced to clients who are interested in their system. This can quite often reduce lengthy and time-consuming PQQ’s and ITT’s. A real win-win.

We work with world leading HR and Payroll technology providers across all vertical sectors and it’s the Partnerships team who are responsible for developing and nurturing new and existing relationships with vendors. Partnerships are the key to ensuring there are mutual benefits and opportunities for everyone.

In our ‘Spotlight On’ series, we’ll be looking at the Partnerships team and the work that goes on behind the scenes.

Who we are

The Partnerships team is made up of highly skilled HR and Payroll technology specialists who have worked across HR management, HR and Payroll software procurement, Programme Management, Project Management, Account Management, Business Development and Sales. They have seen the HRIS software world from all angles. They know first-hand many of the common challenges in selecting, implementing and getting the most out of HRIS solutions and use this experience to help partners achieve their goals.

What we do

We work with partners to form a symbiotic relationship, sharing knowledge, best practices, and enhancing business opportunities. We offer four partnership opportunities which cover different business needs from content marketing, advertising to client project management support and delivering the customer success experience.

Delivery Partnership

We will work with you and your clients to deliver a seamless customer experience to help deliver your HRIS projects.  Delivery partnerships aim to increase delivery capacity and capability while reducing any resourcing issues. The team can provide customers with business case development, project scoping and discovery, implementation and UAT testing through to go live. As a one stop shop for People technology, we can provide managed and outsourced HR and Payroll services tailored to suit the business.

Client-Side Partnership

A business may not have the time, resources or expertise in-house to complete complex HRIS projects. This is where we can step in and support your clients. This could include migrating data out of legacy systems, project management, project discovery and technical configuration as well as providing independent user acceptance testing of the build.

Approved Vendor Connect Partnership

Our A-Z vendor provides a place to market your products and services and gets you in front of potential clients looking for HRIS technology. We’ll create a dedicated profile for your solution alongside advertising your events on our website and in our newsletter, which is sent to our community of senior business and HR decision makers.

Insight Partnership

As thought leaders in the HR and Payroll technology industry, we are happy to share our knowledge with the industry – completely impartially. We can work with partners on marketing activities from content generation for trade publications, social media or newsletters, providing expert industry speakers for event panels and co-hosting events and webinars to showcase your products.
