Your Questions Answered

Whether you’re ready to work with us or you’re just exploring and comparing your options, these FAQs are designed to help answer the questions we are asked most often.

 

An LMS is a Learning Management System – a business tool created to track, monitor and record employee learning on a corporate level.

Initially, an LMS captured basic information such as whether training had been completed and if the learner passed or failed. As purely data capture tools, the user experience for both the learner and the administrator wasn’t really considered.

Today, learners are demanding more from their LMS. Learners perform better when they feel engaged, and a modern LMS also needs to support engagement, social learning and performance management.

A channel partner training program is a business strategy employed by vendors wanting to support and encourage their channel partners to better and promote their product or service. The program is designed to generate increased sales, strengthen the relationship between the partner and the vendor, and can be delivered in many different formats to suit a range of training requirements.

Some of the benefits to channel partner training include better communication and a stronger network of people, a lower churn rate of partners due to increased education and satisfaction, higher sales, an easier partner onboarding process, a more protected brand representation, and more opportunity to access and gather feedback from a range of partners.

Proper channel partner training equips partners with the necessary tools and information to sell effectively and keeps them in the loop with product offerings and regulations. This creates a more harmonious relationship and boosts revenue for the vendor and channel partner.

Setting up a program involves ten key steps:

  1. Identify your training objectives and needs.
  2. Identify who needs the training.
  3. Align your partner’s KPIs with your company goals.
  4. Identify the best training method.
  5. Create audience-specific learner pathways based on a partner’s specific needs.
  6. Gamify the training courses.
  7. Break down the topics into digestible content.
  8. Source the right Learning Management System (LMS).
  9. Create and introduce a certification scheme to encourage engagement and offer additional promotional opportunities.
  10. Renew and update the programme as it develops post-launch.

A good channel partner training program will be designed with the partner in mind, ensuring everyone is on the same page. Setting clear goals and commitments allows for a mutual understanding of what the entire network wants, and that these are aligned. Nurturing this relationship is what’s going to drive real success and boost your sales.

How to Sell Your Online Channel Partner Training Program

By helping your channel partners meet their goals, you actively increase the chances of meeting your business goals. One of the best ways to aid channel partner success is to supply them with a training program with specific courses focused on their role and business. This article will explain how to sell channel partner training courses and how they benefit your organisation, all in a step-by-step guide on how to do it successfully.

8 Ways to Create Effective Channel Partner Training

From your dealers and distributors to your franchisees and resellers, your channel helps to hit your company’s overall goals. Therefore, it’s in your best interests to provide them with the best channel partner training.  Businesses today have unprecedented reach. A customer from the other side of the globe can specify or order your product and have it arrive within a week. Yet accessibility doesn’t automatically translate to sales. Before an end customer even thinks about making a purchase, partners need to have the ability to connect and address their needs. That’s where training comes in… However, since they don’t work directly for you, you can’t just provide your internal training programs and expect a direct knowledge transfer or morale boost. In this blog, we explain what channel partner training is, how it will benefit your business and the key steps to take to build an effective online training program.

The Importance of Training in Partner Relationship Management

Crutches have remained relatively unchanged for hundreds of years. The logic is simple: You use your hands and arms to balance and move. So when the iWalk 2.0 came onto the scene promising hands-free use, the brand expected users would have trouble visualising how it works. Yet instead of directing the educational effort towards consumers, the company went a different way and focused on resellers. Partners were given comprehensive training on how to fit patients for the device, and how to teach them to walk in it.  The iWalk 2.0 has since won numerous awards and is now sold in 30 countries, largely through external sales channels. The team itself only consists of five people.
