Welcome to the Ygl Reference Program The Ygl Reference Program is designed to provide a framework to fulfill your reference needs quickly and easily.
A formal reference program is a win-win situation for both Ygl and our clients. This program builds a mutually beneficial relationship with Ygl and our high-value customers. Not only does Ygl benefit from a satisfied client base, but our referenceable clients receive increased visibility both within Ygl and the media, as well as points for each referenceable activity towards potential rewards, as approved by the management. By showcasing their achievements, our references are viewed as leaders in their field, utilizing best practices and pioneering strategies to hold a competitive advantage in their marketplace.
Our centralized, standardized customer reference database has been compiled from sales nominations and independently managed reference lists. Ygl has configured this database for our products, industries, business units and regions. The reference management system features best-match and key-word search capabilities with a library of reference materials, such as case studies, editorial articles, video testimonials, etc. This tool is designed to track and monitor reference utilization to avoid burn-out whenever possible.
As the program develops, we will continue to refine the reference process, database functionality and expand the reference database through internal and external membership drives.
