Acronis arms the channel with new global training programmes
New certifications to enable partners to sell latest product family
Hong Kong, China, 27 October, 2011 – Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today introduced new professional education programmes to bolster channel enablement.
The first of the new initiatives is the Acronis Sales Professional Certification, an extension of the courses currently provided under Acronis Academy. The new certification provides sales professionals within resellers with guidance on how to sell Acronis products to make more revenue. The bite-sized session covers everything from the key features of the recently introduced Acronis® Backup & Recovery™ 11 family, to tips on how to transform leads into deals, as well as pricing, maintenance and renewal details.
The vendor has also updated its Acronis Certified Engineers (ACE) in-depth technical training and certification programme. The two day on-site training class providing knowledge transfer about Acronis’ products, now covers the Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 family. The solution is the first on the market to provide affordable disaster recovery and data protection from one integrated solution. The ACE course provides guidance on project implementation, roll out and troubleshooting.
Thirdly, the Acronis Certified Trainer (ACT) course has also been updated to cover Acronis Backup & Recovery 11. Upon passing the certification, distributors can become a qualified trainer and can run Acronis Academy courses.
“The channel is our first priority at Acronis and we’re pleased to offer these new training courses to help our partner community develop and understand Acronis business offering in greater depth,” explains Bill Taylor-Mountford, President of Acronis APAC.
Existing ACEs have a grace period of six months to upgrade to the new training programme and retain their certification status.
