The partnership will also help customers achieve even better results by bundling Qualtrics Experience Management software with services and complimentary solutions from IBM Japan.
IBM and Qualtrics: Building on a Foundation of Success
IBM joined the Qualtrics Partner Network (QPN) in November 2019 and established a dedicated Qualtrics team to support XM implementations. In February 2020, all members of the dedicated team were certified as Qualtrics consultants. The team has delivered professional implementation of Qualtrics EmployeeXM to organizations in Japan, including winning orders for large-scale employee experience projects and receiving the highest satisfaction score in IBM Japan after implementation.
In addition to acquiring the Qualtrics reseller certification, IBM Japan will focus on achieving the partnership goals of continuous expansion of the XM market in Japan and expanded support for XM solutions to Japanese customers.
IBM Japan and Qualtrics will conduct XM training within IBM Japan and will also conduct joint account planning with sales representatives from both companies, joint digital assets for customers, and Qualtrics customers will speak at IBM Think (a digital event hosted by IBM Japan).
