In an effort to help its network of more than 800 leading print providers from 48 countries better connect with current and potential customers, Xerox Corp. (Rochester, NY) has created a new web platform for its Premier Partners Global Network program. Designed to generate business and drive information and educational opportunities, the web portal is the latest installment to the program, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

“The key priority for our new web platform is to make it very easy for Premier Partners to connect with current and potential customers,” says Gavin Jordan-Smith, vice president, commercial print, premedia business and Premier Partners Global Network, Xerox Corp. “We realize our members have many demands; helping them grow business and capture new revenue is now just a mouse click away.”

The peer-to-peer social platform is an open web forum where Premier Partners can share ideas and educational opportunities. The platform has a section dedicated to Xerox companies and business partners, including GMC Software Technology and XMPie, a Xerox company, where Premier Partners can access promotions, beta and software trials, along with other exclusive opportunities.

Xerox is also launching a web and mobile search application via iPhone and BlackBerry. Print buyers and marketing professionals looking for a print provider can enter the services and applications needed, along with their location. The application integrates Google Maps technology to guide the print buyer to the door of the most appropriate Premier Partner.

The new services will be available to Xerox’s Premier Partners in July at
