The independent business technology community for HP users, Connect, is launching on March 1 the Connect Marketplace — a searchable index of HP partners that HP Connect members can turn to when looking for products.

HP PartnerOne and AllianceOne partners can set up a free basic listing or enhance their listing for a fee.

According to Nina Buik, chief marketing officer at HP Connect (which was formed by the consolidation of user groups), this is the only resource of its kind for partners that allows users to search the marketplace by different criteria – for instance, product type, HP partner affiliation and location — to find the right partner for them.

Partner listings will not be rated by users, but at some point in the future, after the marketplace is fully populated, partners may receive recognition in the way of awards or partner of the year, etc., Buik said.
