In Market Guide for Partner Relationship Management Applications (April, 2023) the Gartner team makes it clear that channel and alliance partners are increasingly involved in opportunities for driving growth, taking part in co-marketing and co-ideation efforts. At the same time, organizations' efforts are hampered by lack of critical insight into how, and where their partners engage.

When we first stepped in to run marketing and generate growth for data management company Panzura, the company needed a partner portal to replace the out-dated, awkward and very pricy option it had in place. We'd gone all-in on HubSpot as our customer relationship, marketing, sales and service management system, so we needed to find options that were either native to HubSpot, or had a HubSpot integration with two-way communication.
