Managed WordPress web hosting provider WP Engine has announced The Code Company as its first strategic partner in the Asia-Pacific region. The Code Company is a professional technical agency based in Australia that assists media companies in determining the best method to construct, maintain, and monetize their publishing platforms using WordPress.
“We are incredibly proud to recognize The Code Company as our first strategic partner in the region,” said Mark Randall, Vice President of Sales APAC for WP Engine. “In the dozens of solutions we’ve partnered on together, I’m proud of the best-in-class enterprise WordPress solutions we’ve built for our joint clients. The Code Company team’s inventive solutions deliver clear and compelling results for clients helping to modernize their technology stack, obtain greater creative flexibility and most of all, grow their digital publishing business.”
WP Engine’s global Agency Partner Program (APP), one of the largest in WordPress, helps agencies of all sizes use this popular CMS to grow their business by driving creative, engaging experiences and deliver clear impact for their clients. In 2020, WP Engine Asia-Pacific saw a 47 percent increase in agency partners.
“Two of the greatest fears of any digital publisher involve their site crashing under traffic spikes, or worse, having their site hacked or compromised” said Ben May, Managing Director at The Code Company. “This is why we don’t hesitate to recommend WP Engine. Having a partner that takes great care in our clients’ site performance, stability and security means we can focus on delivering value.”
WP Engine Agency Partner Program
Launched in 2017, WP Engine’s Agency Partner Program (APP) would allow agencies to focus on digital innovation rather than administration while growing their businesses. Due to the rich thought leadership and content resources, powerful developer tools, and the chance for new business leads, WP Engine’s APP has expanded significantly since its introduction, enrolling more than 5,000 agency partners.
Member, Advanced, and Strategic are the three WP Engine Agency Partner Program levels. Access to the Partner Portal, additional developer tools, a co-branded landing page, partner communications, a free staging account on WP Engine, and access to the Genesis Framework and 10 StudioPress Themes are all included as part of becoming a Strategic Partner.
Preferred partner directory listing, specialized sales assistance, lead referrals, unique joint marketing, custom quarterly evaluations, and custom on-site training are all additional perks.
