Pipefy Partner Program Policies
Partner Program Overview
Pipefy’s Partner Program enables partners to receive benefits by generating leads for the Pipefy platform. Partners are organized into 2 (two) types, as more fully described below, which determine the types of leads they may generate. The policies set forth herein are valid from the signature of the Pipefy Partner Program Agreement and ending on December 31 of the year. The renewal may occur following with the terms of clause 11 of the Pipefy Partner Program Agreement. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Pipefy Partner Program Agreement. All policies set forth herein are subject to change at the sole discretion of Pipefy.
Type of Partnership:
• PARTNER: Corporate partner, qualified and certified by Pipefy, allowed to resell Pipefy with no restrictions, coordinating the sale and participating in the entire process.
Certifications by Pipefy are valid only for the Partnership Year and are subject to renewal for subsequent periods only at the sole discretion of Pipefy.
• There is no fee to join the Pipefy PARTNER Program.
• After signup, for the approval of the PARTNER, there is a 90 (ninety) days onboarding, on or about 20 (twenty) hours of training and calls with activation managers. The final output is the sale of a first deal until the deadline.
• If the onboarding is successful concluded, the PARTNER goes to a manager team, who will coach and lead the PARTNER.
• Unless Pipefy deliberates differently, in case PARTNER cannot make the first sale within 90 days, he will not have access to an activation manager and account manager, and only the chat support will be allowed.
Training and Certification:
• The Onboarding and other Training and the Certification Process provide the necessary product information, methodologies, and processes for the PARTNER development.
• The audience for Onboarding, Training, and the Certification Process are all employees of the PARTNER company that could be affected by the operation of the partnership. The subject of each Training or Certification will be informed by Pipefy, which will inform also the area or the business-related.
• The Trainings and Certifications Process may be mandatory or facultative.
• Mandatory: The subject of the Mandatory Training and Certifications Process are the basic points about the Products and the Partnership and the mutual commercial objectives. Onboarding Training is also mandatory.
• Facultative Training and Certification Process: The objective of Facultative Training and Certification Process is to update, complement and extend the existing information, not being, however, necessary to the objectives of the partnership. The facultative Training and Certification Process is available only for the PARTNERS who already completed the previous version of that Training.
• The Trainings and Certifications Process will be, usually, available online, through e-learning programs. Exceptionally, there will be on-site Training, which will be facultative for PARTNERS (except when predefined condition of the partner tier).
• Pipefy reserves the right to constantly review the contents of its training and to update them in accordance with the changes and needs of Pipefy and its PARTNERS.
• Pipefy will communicate the PARTNER when occurring any update in the portfolio. The PARTNER will have 3 (three) months to do the correspondent Training Program, under penalty of early termination of the participation on the Pipefy Partner Program.
Lead Reporting (PARTNER):
In order for a lead to be qualified for program benefits (a “Qualified Lead”), the lead must be:
• A permitted lead under the applicable partnership tier and the partner must identify demands of companies/prospects and/or projects that may need the Pipefy´s Services and Software;
• Entered into the Lead Indication’s pipe at https://app.pipefy.com/pipes/214569 to fill the registration form;
• Once registered, the opportunity could be validated by Pipefy in Pipefy´s sole discretion, considering:
(i) APPROVED: when Pipefy considers a new opportunity, not predicted and not previously mentioned by any PARTNER or member of the Pipefy sales team; or
(ii) REJECTED: if Pipefy check that the Lead already has been registered and approved in advance for any other PARTNER or for any member of the Pipefy sales team.
*FIFO (first in first out) will be considered by Pipefy for the analysis and response to a new opportunity record. Pipefy will analyze first the registration registered at an earlier date. Once the Lead is approved, the PARTNER might receive the respective commission, according to the current commissioning policy; and receive commercial support from Pipefy’s Partner Service Team.
• For the payment of the commission, PARTNER shall indicate the potential customer in the Lead Indication Pipe prior to the conclusion of the sale of the licenses, for Pipefy’s prior formal approval.
• Upon the inclusion into Lead Indication’s pipe and validation by Pipefy of a Qualified Lead as described above, the partner will have 90 days to close a Qualified Purchase with the Qualified Lead.
• If there is no Qualified Purchase during that period (90 days), the PARTNER should provide formal feedback to the manager and Pipefy, in its sole discretion, shall have the option to deliberate over the reasonable next steps and commercial approach with the lead.
• Any transaction with the Qualified Lead after the 90 day period with no substantial activity or with no formal feedback will not be subject to commission or program benefits.
• In addition, the Lead must include the resale of Pipefy´s Software, as part of the final solution proposed to the customer.
Applicable Commission Percentages
