On May 9 Dell launched PartnerDirect 2.0 globally, expanding the partner program into three tiers – Premier Partners, Preferred Partners and Registered Partners.
When the announcement was made, our vice president and general manager of Dell Global Commercial Channels Greg Davis noted that partners who take the initiative to work on their training and Dell certifications would receive enhanced incentives and benefits to better position them for success.
One of the latest of those is our remote demonstrations platform at Demos.Dell.com. The Demo Center provides anytime, anywhere access to a suite of hosted demos, including:
- Dell EqualLogic Demo
- Dell Compellent Storage Center Demo
- Dell Management Console
- Dell M1000e CMC
- Dell Remote Access Controller
- Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter
- PowerEdge Lifecycle Controller
- Dell Advanced Infrastructure Manager
- Dell VIS Self-Service Creator
Made available through our Dell Solution Centers around the globe, this online demonstration platform is now available to all of our Premier Partners in the U.S. and Canada. It will be offered in the Asia-Pacific region and in EMEA in September.
Once they have received their account details, Premier Partners can schedule demos through the Demo Center at any time without need for advance notice – just check the booking tool for an open time slot, and get started showing customers how Dell solutions can help their business succeed.
