Why has this programme been introduced?

We’ve been listening to feedback from our existing partners about the need for clarity on what support we have on offer and about new ways that we can work together. The new OS Channel Partner Programme will provide the basis for closer collaboration to support the Partner lifecycle, from recruitment through development and on to independence, and incentivise and support Partners to deliver increased sales.

What training can I get?

Through our OS Channel Partner Programme you can access a programme of enablement that supports the lifecycle of an OS partner: introductory sessions, deep dives, advanced sessions, and ongoing knowledge transfer through briefings and learning sessions. This includes a range of training sessions with knowledge transfer, briefings on product launches and a calendar of activities engaging partner technical staff and developers. Sign into the Partner Portal and look out for updates.

What’s the difference between the tiers?

To find out about our new tiering structure, please visit our webpage OS Partner tiers explained.

Yes our tiered programme provides us with the opportunity to showcase our Partners in a different way. We now have Strategic, Premium and Associate Partners listed alongside our traditional data Partners. 

What if I do not agree with my tier allocation?

Partner Tiers have been pre-allocated against fixed requirements which will be communicated to Partners following Programme launch.

Partners can:

  • 'Accept' onto the Programme at their pre-allocated tier,
  • 'Not Accept' if they do not agree of with their initial allocation (with an opportunity to submit evidence to demonstrate fulfilment of tier requirements)

Any Partner who doesn't respond to their tier allocation, will be automatically opted out of the programme.

Can I download the partner programme terms?

Yes. You can download the OS Channel Partner Programme Terms 

What if I choose not to join?

We support a growing number of OS Partners who share our passion for location insight, enabling them to self-serve from a range of content designed to support their projects, hobbies and interests.

You can choose to join at any time, just speak to your Account Manager.

Who can I speak to if I have questions?
