Channel Partner Training Platform

Intuitive Partner Training Software That’s Beyond Any Legacy LMS

Easily onboard, train, and certify your channel partners on how best to market, sell, and support your products.

What is Partner Training?

Partner training is the process of providing your channel partners, such as suppliers, distributors, resellers, or affiliates, the knowledge they need to successfully promote, sell, and support your company’s products or services. When your partners know the ins and outs of your product or service, they will be more successful in driving a high level of customer experience, brand loyalty, sales, and revenue.

According to Canalys, channel partners accounted for more than 70% of the total addressable IT spending in 2023.

What can your organization achieve with partner training?

A trained partner can effectively communicate the benefits and values of your offering to customers, thereby bringing in more sales and revenue.

Partners with relevant product and company information can accurately represent your brand and communicate your values and vision.

Well-trained partners are better equipped to address customer problems and questions, which results in fewer customer support tickets.

Trained partners will be more proactive and responsive to customers' needs. They can make customers feel more satisfied and remain loyal to your brand.
