Solutions built by OpenMFG development partners will be marketed and sold by OpenMFG and its VAR partners.

    The expanded program has three levels. The silver level is for free-standing applications that integrate with OpenMFG through an API, while the gold level also allows the solution to be accessed directly from within the OpenMFG application. The platinum level is for partners that have completed OpenMFG Master Partner Certification.
