Join the Parallels ISV Initiative, and expand your customer base by making your Windows only software available to Mac and Linux customers. By promoting one of Parallels virtualization software as your deployment solution for customers using Mac and Linux machines, you can sell into the fast growing customer segments and meet the needs of more customers.
Parallels ISV Initiative Overview
Parallels tests all partner software in-house for complete compatibility, free of cost. There is no need for your company to spend any time or costs on development or testing of either Parallels or Mac OS. Also, remember that your Windows-only software is running in a full Windows install so there is no need to support Mac by partnering with Parallels!
Parallels, Inc., an industry leader in virtualization technology software, offers software vendors large and small the opportunity to increase market presence by providing our customers with the choice to run your software on any operating system they choose. We are looking to partner with successful, industry leading independent software vendors who are interested in joint marketing and PR opportunities.
Parallels appreciates the time and costs incurred in developing multi-platform applications and can help you tap into the fast growing Mac and Linux markets at no cost. We enable any customer using any operating system — from Mac OS X to Linux — to run multiple operating systems and their applications without buying another computer.
By aligning your software with Parallels solutions, you increase your potential sales exponentially by tapping into Mac or Linux customers…and that’s just the beginning.
In addition to expanding your presence to growing Mac and Linux markets, benefits include:
Your company logo placed prominently on the Parallels Partner webpage
Compatibility testing performed by the Parallels development team
Access to NFR keys
