The platinum tier is the highest of 4 partner tiers and places Velir at the top of Sitecore’s Global Partner Network.

Velir, a full-service digital agency, today announced that it had been recognized by Sitecore, the global leader in customer experience management software, as a Platinum Implementation Partner; one of only 8 in North America. Along with Velir’s recent MVP wins (Velir has received 6 MVP awards since becoming a partner) and its status of being one of only two partners to have received all 6 Sitecore specializations, this new designation places Velir in the top 1% of Sitecore’s global partner network, which includes hundreds of partners.

Sitecore always puts it customers first. The Solution Partner Program was recently rolled out to closely align the needs of its customers and partners and increase customer satisfaction by helping them find the right partner for the right project, every time. It is designed to ease integration and maximize the value of Sitecore’s solution to customers, while supporting Sitecore’s partner-led business model and providing additional opportunity to grow and scale the business.

The platinum tier is the highest of 4 partner tiers and recognizes partners who deliver on Sitecore’s complete vision for customer experience management at scale. They’re recognized within the industry for their thought leadership and have integrated their extensive Sitecore knowledge and best practices into every stage of the customer lifecycle.

"We are humbled and honored by this acknowledgement from Sitecore. We have been a key partner to Sitecore since its debut in North America and the Platinum Partner status, along with our MVP and Sitecore Specialization awards, are a testament to Velir’s commitment and contributions to the Sitecore community. It will serve as a key differentiator for us as an agency and we’re looking forward to the new opportunities and challenges that will result from this recognition."
