The updated program provides partners with invaluable resources and high profit margins while offering some of the industry's most popular and widely recognized software brands, including CorelDRAW®, MindManager®, Parallels® and WinZip.

“Partners are a critical part of Corel’s business, and this new program has been created specifically to allow our friends in the channel to gain new revenue streams and customers, all with the goal to accelerate their profitability and growth,” said Andrea Johnston, Corel’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Drawing on the strengths of our incredible people, flexible processes and amazing products, Corel is thrilled to work together with our partners to empower knowledge workers with the tools they need to stay productive and succeed in today’s new world of work.”
