ServiceNow serves up new incentives as part of partner programme overhaul
Revamp aims to expand partner expertise and drive further value through the Now Platform
Cloud software firm ServiceNow has unveiled a host of new incentives for its partner programme in a bid to help partners maximise its investments and generate market opportunities.
Announced at the company’s Partner Kickoff event in Las Vegas, these incentives include access to a brand-new partner development fund, a co-funded investment programme, as well as simplified discounts and rebates, in a bid to spark increased partner growth and profitability.
The changes form part of a programme-wide overhaul that aims to target the estimated $500 billion market opportunity for its Now Platform and associated partner services.
Available for all partners from 6 March, ServiceNow said these changes will help expand partners’ expertise, differentiate their skills, and maximise their unique contributions.
“The vision for ServiceNow partners is that they should be treated as co-creators of value, and as co-pilots on our journey to becoming the platform for digital business,” said Erica Volini, senior vice president of alliances and channel ecosystem at ServiceNow.
Alongside its new incentives, ServiceNow is introducing four new modules for partners: Build, Consulting and Implementation, Resale, and Service Provider.
These will allow businesses to better align with the unique roles and routes-to-market within the ServiceNow ecosystem, the firm said.
There will also be new benefits associated with each module, which have been designed to better reflect the unique contributions that different partners bring to the ecosystem.

Enhancements include a revamped partner portal, as well as an improved “partner finder” that allows customers to pinpoint the ideal partner by region, industry, or domain expertise.
“Our reimagined partner programme creates unbounded opportunity for partners to expand and collaborate with ServiceNow well beyond where we can go alone,” Volini added. “We are investing in partner success, championing their expertise, and giving them flexibility to drive exponential value with our platform.”
Volini will lead the programme in her new role as senior vice president of alliances and channel ecosystem. She succeeds David Parsons, who has led the alliances and channel ecosystem organisation since 2018.
Parsons will now front a new and strategic ecosystem ventures function focused on accelerating growth with partners in targeted markets.
“It has been my honour and privilege to lead our alliances and channel ecosystem organisation for the past four years,” Parsons said. “I am proud of everything we have accomplished together for our partners and joint customers and excited about our ongoing journey together.
“I want to thank Erica for her partnership and leadership. I know that she is the right leader, at the right time, to continue to build on a strong foundation of success and momentum.”
