Becoming a Personio partner

Personio understands the importance of partnering with like-minded organizations to drive success and growth for both parties. That's why they've developed the Personio partner program, a collaboration program designed to connect and support their partners as they grow their businesses and expand their reach.

By joining the Personio Marketplace, partners can connect their software solutions to Personio via the open API, allowing for automatic data transfer between systems. This provides added value for customers and expands the product portfolio for partners.

To get started, simply fill out the form on their website. After successful submission, it will be reviewed by their Partner Manager. If your software solution meets Personio's requirements, they will provide you with a developer account and their interface documentation. This will contain detailed information on how to set up the interface, and their Partner Manager will be available to answer any technical questions you may have.

As a Personio Product Partner, you'll be listed on the Personio Marketplace website and within their software as an integration partner. You'll also receive a personal information page on their website.

In addition, Personio will inform their existing customers about the integration of your software in their monthly product newsletter. And selected partners may be eligible for a referral partnership and joint marketing opportunities.
