Splicecom has re-aligned its partner accreditation programme to compliment the recent launch of the SelectVoice 1000 platform and associated services.
The company says the new scheme rewards the continued focus of existing resellers, whilst simplifying and expediting the on-boarding of new partners.
"We've developed SelectVoice with the channel uppermost in our mind. Making it easy to sell, install and support means that we've been able to reduce the amount of training required for accreditation," said Stuart Bell, Head of Sales for the UK & Ireland at Splicecom (pictured).
"We fully appreciate that taking personnel off the road has a business cost, so the introduction of SelectVoice allows far faster product orientation as courses are now reduced in both time and complexity."
"Reducing the length and complexity of our initial technical course allows our partners to quickly on-board new staff and broaden the reach and understanding within the wider organisation for most SME customers. Thereafter, only those needing to deal with Enterprise class requirements should attend the Advanced SelectVoice course.
"SelectVoice can be deployed in the cloud, on premise or any of the two," said Bell. "As such it's important that our accreditation recognises and rewards partners who choose to sell, install and support Splicecom solutions in a similar manner."
Splicecom now offers four levels of accreditation, rewarding its channel partners for technical and sales competencies as well as sales levels. There are also a further three levels for those specialising in cloud delivery and providing their own data centre infrastructure. In addition, the accreditation also recognises those wishing to specialise in the areas of Training and Support, insuring that third party organisations are also recognised at the appropriate level.
"Our accreditation scheme is geared around successful self-sufficiency for our channel partners and we're happy to announce that the first to reach Authorised Partner status in our new programme is CTi Communications," added Bell.
