NEW YORK - Nov 11, 2014
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced Infor Launchpad, a new program for channel and alliance partners that offers in-person training with Infor business development representatives (BDRs). Designed to equip Infor Partner Network (IPN) members with critical sales enablement tools, this initiative delivers the opportunity for face-to-face interaction with Infor employees that are well-practiced in capturing the attention and interest of potential customers.
"We created this program because Infor BDRs possess a unique skill set from which many partners can benefit," said Megan Dahlen, senior director, Global Business Development, Infor. "By providing the opportunity for in-person training, rather than a virtual event, partners receive an individualized experience tailored for their specific industry or product focus. This can equip partners with tools designed to help drive greater demand for their company, which can ultimately result in higher revenue."
Infor Launchpad will be offered at three different locations across the Americas and Europe in November and December of this year, including Mexico City, Minneapolis and Barcelona. Infor has created a specialized set of tools for each session intended to help partners grow a more profitable and sustainable business around Infor applications and suites. The training is designed to equip partners with the critical knowledge and skills necessary to reach out to prospects, qualify leads and see more opportunities through to a closed deal.
"This type of training program will be a valuable resource for our company because we can utilize it to help educate new employees and sharpen the skills of our existing sales team," said Jeff Holverson, account manager, ECI. "We appreciate Infor's consistency in expanding opportunities for IPN members, particularly when it comes to deepening our product knowledge to enhance interactions with our customers."
"Infor is dedicated to the success of our partners, which we continue to demonstrate through new training and enablement initiatives such as Infor Launchpad," said Michael Carrillo, director of Global Enablement, Infor Partner Network. "Infor's partner programs are focused on developing the competencies of all key business roles, from business development and sales to support, with the goal of ensuring our partners are knowledgeable and prepared to help customers optimize their use of Infor applications."
Partners who are interested in participating should access their Infor Campus account for more information on specific workshop dates and registration.
