Enjoy the Benefits of Becoming an EqualLevel InstantConnect Partner

EqualLevel’s InstantConnect Program was created to identify those suppliers we work with whose catalogs have the technical requirements to be added to a marketplace quickly. These suppliers, called InstantConnect Partners, can be onboarded to a customer’s marketplace in as little as two to five days.

InstantConnect Partners are highlighted in EqualLevel sales materials, demos, and other marketing pieces, offering their businesses unparalleled exposure to our customers. As a result, organizations we work with often choose from our list of InstantConnect Partners to kick-start their marketplace set-up.

InstantConnect Partner Benefits

  • Partners are showcased in product demos and sales materials given to prospective customers.
  • Partners are featured on the InstantConnect page of the EqualLevel website.
  • Partners receive periodic access to EqualLevel’s core client list.
  • Partners are highlighted in customer marketplaces.

“After we received the Akron Public Schools’ email notification of a request for a catalog, we were able to configure punchout and order delivery and have it ready for production within hours. Actual configuration took only minutes to complete.”
