ScanSource Communications is Polycom’s (News - Alert) first North American Authorized Training Partner. As such, it will be able to offer certification classes and training for Polycom RealPresence solutions, ultimately helping more resellers bring its solutions to market.
The Authorized Training Partner Program allows select partners with Polycom RealPresence expertise to train and certify other reseller partners. This is a great move for the ScanSource (News - Alert) Services Group, which is focused on creating and implementing unique value-added support programs and services for its reseller partners, which includes Polycom.
“We’re thrilled to welcome ScanSource as the first North America member of our new Authorized Training Partner program,” commented Ron Myers, senior VP of Worldwide Channels at Polycom in a statement. “We’ve designed the Authorized Training Partner program to deliver the training needed to achieve the sales and service objectives in our theatres, to deliver high-value collaboration solutions to our joint customers, and to give our partners effective tools to grow their video collaboration business.”
Now that ScanSource is an authorized training partner, it can provide training to resellers with flexible schedules and locations. This will of course help Polycom greatly, as it will produce more resellers certified with a clear knowledge of Polycom RealPresence, which will help get the platform on the market.
ScanSource will begin offering classes through the Polycom Global Education Network immediately, with the first class scheduled for this month.
As the latest Polycom North America Distributor of the Year, ScanSource is a great choice for Polycom’s Authorized Training Partner. ScanSource has a vast experience it can pass on to other companies, which will benefit both it and Polycom alike.
