Software Distribution Platform

A software distribution platform is a solution that enables software vendors and resellers to distribute SaaS to customers. It is synonymous with reseller platform.

Software distribution platforms can offer a range of features and functionalities. To be most effective, however, a platform should automate backend processes (for example, billing), and make it easy to instantly provision cloud-based solutions. Software distribution platforms that support resellers should also streamline partner onboarding, management, and payouts.
