Claris Corporation announced the expansion of the Claris Solutions Alliance (CSA), a consortium of software professionals, publishers, authors and trainers who use and recommend Claris software products. Spurred by the fast growth of the CSA, which has risen to nearly 1,500 members worldwide, Claris is adding two new tiers to the organization.
"In less than one year, CSA membership has almost doubled, a leading indicator of the widespread popularity of FileMaker Pro 3.0 for Windows Win 3.1, 95/NT and the Mac OS, ClarisWorks 4.0 for Windows 95 and Mac OS and Claris Home Page for Windows 95/NT and Mac OS within small businesses, corporations and educational institutions," said Guerrino De Luca, Claris president. "Our expansion of the CSA is focused on providing customers with the solutions they need to ensure their success."
Claris Partners, a new CSA membership, is for highly experienced software development professionals who will work closely with both Claris Corporation product development and sales teams to better address the needs of Claris software customers. In addition to access to beta versions of Claris software, direct technical support, special sales incentives, and numerous co-marketing opportunities, Claris Partner CSA members will undergo reference verification and annual testing by Claris and will receive an official Claris Partner logo for use within all promotional materials. Claris Partners annual membership fees are $499. Testing fees are an additional $250 per member per product.
CSA Enterprise membership, another new category of CSA membership, is designed for a wide variety of professionals within businesses and corporations who are responsible for in-house database development, administration of FileMaker Pro databases, and help desk personnel supporting FileMaker Pro users.
CSA Associate membership, formerly known as the single CSA membership, has been expanded to a include wide scope of users, including software consultants, publishers, trainers and the novice developer/consultant. CSA Enterprise and Associate annual fees are $249 per member. Testing is not required for the CSA Enterprise and Associate level membership. All CSA members are entitled to a variety of support options and tools from Claris Corporation, including the following: CSA Toolbox and Tech Info CD; free listings in the CSA Solutions Guide; access to the exclusive CSA private WWW Forums and ListServ, and admission to regular CSA meetings.
Claris Solutions Alliance was founded in 1991. Last June, Claris sponsored the organization's first worldwide developer's conference held in Santa Clara, Calif. The CSA plans to hold its second annual conference this Spring in the San Francisco Bay area. Further details on the 1997 CSA Worldwide Developer's Conference will be provided at later time.
