There is tremendous and growing demand for development expertise skilled in Sencha’s Web technologies such as  Ext JS, Ext Designer, and Sencha Touch, and IT managers need better ways to address this need using both Sencha itself and other organizations they can trust. To connect project managers with qualified software solutions providers, Sencha, the leading provider of HTML5 frameworks and tools for desktop and mobile application developers, is expanding its partner program for systems integrators and mobile/Web development firms that specialize in JavaScript, HTML5 and open Web technologies.

The new Sencha Certified Partner Program, which launched today, features a tiered approach that offers solutions providers increasing levels of visibility and traction with companies looking for help building next-generation Web apps for the latest browsers and devices.

The Sencha Certified Partner Program offers a range of benefits not previously not available to solutions partners, and aimed at enhancing their prominence within the rapidly growing community of 1.6 million Sencha developers. Solutions providers looking to build their sales pipeline can now take advantage of lead-generation programs, a range of co-marketing opportunities with Sencha, and discounts on training and licences. A new, bi-directional referral program directs services business requests directly from Sencha to qualified partners, and awards partners referral bonuses whenever their success drives sales of Sencha licenses, and support and training services.

“Being a Sencha Certified Partner has helped solidify our presence in the market as a premium provider of enterprise HTML5 mobile and web applications,” said Pat Sheridan, CEO of ModusCreate. “The program has led to introductions to prestigious clients and boosted our industry exposure, both of which have contributed to our rapid growth in 2011. We see the Sencha Certified program as both a key differentiator and a competitive advantage.”

“We really value the way Sencha gets directly involved with its community of partners and customers,” said Joe Preston, partner at Momentum Design Lab. “Sencha offers the most cutting-edge multi-device development platform on the planet. We love recommending Sencha to our customers and look forward to our continued partnership through the Sencha Partner Program.”

“The Sencha Partner Program deserves the highest rating for its simplicity, flexibility, responsiveness, and willingness to work with and engage partners,” said Ashvin Radiya, president and CTO of AvantSoft. “The most important differentiator of the program is that we have access to the Sencha employees we need to ensure our success. The program has helped us get started quickly and expand our business through concrete engagements.”

The Sencha Certified Partner program offers three levels of participation designed to build business opportunities for solutions providers:
• Level One: Community Partner. Any solutions provider can create a free listing on SenchaDevs. This highly trafficked and searchable marketplace directory provides an online presence where a solutions provider can showcase core competencies and areas of focus, gather client endorsements, and attract new business.
