Faster Sales, New Clients, Unbiased Support
RampRate’s IT Supplier Partner Program is designed to help grow our Supplier Partners’ sales and long-term growth by building consistently valuable outsourcing contracts with RampRate’s sourcing clients. And, we provide Supplier Partners with an important additional channel to generate revenue when referring new business to RampRate.
First, our IT Supplier Partner Program is founded on collecting information about capabilities on a bi-annual basis. This data becomes an important part of RampRate’s proprietary SPY Index™ database and helps us match Suppliers to clients. Suppliers are granted web access to view and co-manage their SPY Index profile to ensure that, as the Supplier evolves, new services will be included. In addition, RampRate is constantly updating SPY Index to reflect capabilities, policies and programs from each Supplier Partner.
IT Supplier Application Form – No Commitments, No Strings Attached
There is no fee to become a IT Supplier Partner and to start receiving qualified leads for relevant opportunities.
Becoming a RampRate IT Supplier Partner does not commit you to anything. You may always refuse to pursue leads referred to you by RampRate. You are not obligated to provide RampRate with any leads. There are no strings attached.
Your firm will, however, be subject to rigorous due diligence before approval to ensure your services, reputation, and internal processes are of the highest quality.

“RampRate has been my most reliable global resource and is ready to perform for us at a moment’s notice. Their inside knowledge and ability to handle high-level complex negotiations helped us move fast! They made scaling easier.”
Paul Sams, COO, Blizzard Entertainment
“For over a dozen years, RampRate helped my companies understand the differences between suppliers and worked with us to create the methodology, define the metrics and utilize the proper QoS tools needed to choose the supplier best suited to our needs or restructuring through tailoring solutions. RampRate knows this business better than anyone. We literally saved months of time and optimized our infrastructure spend time and time again. They saved us millions, created agility and new budget out of thin air.” We use them to source or renegotiate cloud, CDN, data center, telecom, software, and strategic initiatives.
Phil Wiser, CTO Hearst, formerly of Sony and Liquid Audio
“I knew I was leaving a bit on the table in our outsourced contracts. But the corporate mandate is growth and innovation, and when further contract improvement seemed to be marginal, my team’s first priorities had to move elsewhere. We can count on RampRate to be precise, timely and create millions in value.”
Dean Nelson, Vice President of Global Foundation Services, eBay
“I have had the pleasure of working with the crew at RampRate several times. Each time they have saved significant time in negotiating and closing contracts for data center space, telecom and managed services, which provided at least 20% savings over what we could have done alone and certainly cut processes in half. Tony and team are extremely knowledgeable in this space and always bring innovation and out-of-the-box thinking to the table.”
