By patvdv at 4 Apr 2008 - 20:45

Introduction

This document is targeted at profit and non-profit organizations that wish to sponsor the most successful Baan-related website: http://www.baanboard.com. In return for their sponsorship the participating organization will receive benefits in terms of on-site advertising.

 

Testimonials

Why consider sponsoring Baanboard.com?

  • First of all, we bear the service charges that are involved with Baanboard.com ourselves. As the website continues to grow under its mounting success some of these service charges are becoming (too) big.
  • Secondly, sponsoring will help to keep Baanboard.com free of obtrusive banners and membership fees. The sponsoring schemes Baanboard.com is offering are a discrete, low-cost yet effective way for an organization to profile itself on the website.
  • Thirdly, sponsoring will enable us to build on future projects with Baanboard.com and will enable us to look for paid expertise. All of these will be aimed at providing more and better services for each Baanboard.com user.

Sponsoring can have profitable results for your business! Read the testimonial of Bader Mansour, CEO of Nazareth Data Quest Ltd (Nazdaq):

 

Nazdaq is a provider of Added-Value Utilities for the Baan market, and therefore, sponsoring Baanboard was very attractive to us - since it is ultimate virtual meeting place for all Baan professionals, from all around the globe.
What makes Baanboard special is the contribution of so many people. Every question receives several answers and all together creates a great knowledgebase for others to use as a resource.
Personally, I visit the Baanboard more than once a day and try to check all new messages and read what interests me. When I study a certain subject, I search the board and get lot of new ideas for launching new products.
Sponsoring Baanboard gave us exposure to the hundreds of Baan users. It matches our marketing objectives in such a unique way.
Bader Mansour General Manager NAZDAQ, Nazareth Data Quest Ltd.
