The Benefits of Working with a Rockwell Automation™ Gold System Integrator Partner


In a manufacturing facility, control systems are critical to operations and productivity. While you’re busy running your day-to-day operations, the core of your business, you may not have experts in-house or time to properly plan and implement a new project.

Modern day control systems can be significantly more complex than systems from decades past. Much like modern automobiles require people with the right training to work on them, your control system is no different.

There are many system integrators with the knowledge and experience to work with Rockwell Automation products. A trusted Rockwell Automation partner can ensure your plant is configured correctly and your planned projects can successfully be upgraded and integrated with your existing systems.

The Rockwell Automation System Integrator program provides an experienced partner to those looking to reduce project risk while leveraging Rockwell Automation technologies.

Brad Conover, North America System Integrator Program Manager stated, “The Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork is a true differentiator in the marketplace, and being a Gold System Integrator partner means your system integrator has expanded capabilities and competencies to bring even more value and higher outcomes to our mutual customers.”

Here are a few benefits of working with a Rockwell Automation Gold System Integrator (SI) Partner.

Certified Personnel

Gold SI Partners are required to employ a certain number of personnel trained and certified in Rockwell products and capabilities. With a Gold SI Partner, you’re guaranteed a certified and trained team with in-depth knowledge of Rockwell systems that can assist you with your equipment needs.

Best Practice Implementation

The personnel of Gold SI Partners not only know the products, but also understand best practices to implement these products. They understand how to interface new products into your existing systems and utilize best practices to ensure your systems are installed properly and operating as designed. They can also implement a plan that aligns with your current reality and help develop a technology roadmap to achieve your future vision.

Extended Warranty

All registered products purchased through Rockwell Automation Gold SI Partner receive two additional years of product warranty, added to the 1-year manufacturing warranty.

Effective Communication

Gold SI Partners alleviate the burden of coordinating between Rockwell and the distributor to deliver the final solution. Your partner knows your systems and the products needed for upgrades, migrations, and expansions. Having a Gold SI Partner leaves the intricate design details to the team implementing the project and allows you the time to focus on day-to-day operations.

Faster Access to High-Level Technical Support

When you have a critical situation at your plant due to the failure of a product, your Gold SI Partner has the access to escalate your predicament. They can speak directly with a Rockwell representative to promptly address the issue and ensure the fastest possible resolution – reducing your downtime and eliminating gratuitous costs.

Cost Savings

Working with a Gold SI Partner allows for an opportunity to purchase equipment for an economical price, saving you money that can be used for other projects.
