ChannelEyes came to Enable Labs with an idea on a “napkin” to revolutionize the engagement level of IT channel programs and partnerships.

ChannelEyes picked Enable Labs to help refine and flesh out their original idea through our project inception process and then to build the backend platform that drives the system using Ruby on Rails together with background processing using Resque.

The system comprises a secure social network that joins IT vendor channel managers directly with their channel partners. The system supports article posting, categorization, time lines, favoriting, following, comments, and much more.

After launch, ChannelEyes pivoted from a web focus to a mobile focus, creating IT vendor branded mobile apps using their ChannelCandy front end mobile application. Due to its flexibility, ChannelEyes was able to continue using the backend platform that Enable Labs had built preserving their complete investment to support their new business direction.

The ChannelEyes platform created by EnableLabs drives both the ChannelEyes web product as well as the ChannelCandy vendor branded mobile applications.
