Distributor Tech Data has upgraded its Channel Academy sales training platform to make it easier to use.
It offers interactive e-learning modules, sales enablement tools and bite-sized training modules from vendors including HPE, Aruba, Microsoft, Veritas and Intel - with additional vendors being added.
The refreshed portal claims a more intuitive experience for users with new tools. Other resources enable resellers to track usage and skills development, as well as measure productivity improvements, return on investment and cost savings.
A streamlined registration process has been created, while new gamification features give customers more tools to encourage participation and competition between team members.
Stephen Ennis, director, Tech Data Academy, Europe, said: “Tech Data has set a goal of making the Channel Academy the one-stop platform for IT sales training, and we are very excited about this major update. We have retained the best features of the original platform, and we have added new functionality and enhanced usability with the aim of making the Tech Data Channel Academy the one-stop platform for IT training.”
