Bushel is a cloud-based service, released earlier this year by JAMF Software, that aims to help small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) set up, manage and protect their iPhones and iPads anytime, and from anywhere. The company says Bushel brings enterprise Apple device management features to SMBs without the need of an IT expert, allowing these businesses to focus on running their operations as opposed to getting bogged down in technology.
Bushel Affiliate Program partners can earn a percentage-based commission for each paying customer they refer that enrolls more than three Apple devices. Just make the referral through the company’s Affiliate Program portal, which offers a look at commission amounts, links to referred customers and billable status reports. The portal also offers the use of a special link designed to track new referrals from ads, social media and email.
The software is free to customers for the first three devices and $2 per month for each additional device. Bushel features a pay-as-you-go monthly pricing model, with no long-term contracts.
Bushel touts use by 3,300 organizations, which it says is a 600 percent increase since after its initial release in January.
“With the launch of our Affiliate Program, Bushel makes it easy for partners to help customers manage and protect their Apple devices, all while capitalizing on referrals in the process,” said Charles Edge, product manager of Bushel. “We remain committed to helping small and medium sized businesses succeed with the Apple platform and to sharing our massive growth with our channel partners. The Affiliate Program marks our next step forward in bringing easy-to-use, powerful and secure Apple device management to everyone.”
