Sitecore Unveils Sitecore KickStart to Unlock Enterprise-Class Digital Experience Capabilities for Lower Midmarket Companies
Program Delivers Sitecore as a Service to Launch Websites in as Little as 30 Days, Starting at $100k per Year, No Developer Resources Needed
Sitecore, the global leader in digital experience management software, announced Sitecore KickStart, a new partner program that delivers Sitecore’s industry-leading digital experience platform in a SaaS setting. Designed specifically for lower midmarket organizations, Sitecore KickStart enables customers to deploy a Sitecore-based website in as little as 30 days, with no developer resources needed.
“As small and mid-sized companies grow, they often find themselves facing a difficult choice. They’re being under-served by open-source content management systems but enterprise-class digital marketing technologies can feel out of reach,” said Mark Frost, CEO of Sitecore. “Sitecore KickStart resolves that dilemma by enabling these companies to accelerate their digital transformation journey without the upfront investment and longer implementation times typical of an enterprise solution.”

Solutions from both partners employ reusable components and layouts, and vertical-specific themes for financial services, higher education, hospitality, and other industries are available.
