LMS Experts Look At Business Impact Of Partner Channel Learning Technology

BLOOMSBURG, PA (September 20, 2016) – Independent LMS consulting firm, Talented Learning, LLC, today announced the availability of a new on-demand webinar designed for organizations seeking more effective ways to support channel partner learning.

"Channel Learning: Six Areas of Innovation" is a free on-demand webinar, designed to help business decision makers understand the various ways that advances in training technology are helping organizations dramatically improve channel partner performance and results.

Available anytime online at no cost, the webinar is hosted by Talented Learning CEO and lead analyst, John Leh, along with Brett Strauss, Founder and President of Media Defined, makers of the NetExam partner and customer training LMS.

"More than ever, companies are recognizing that knowledgeable partners can be a significant source of strategic advantage — and this is fueling increased interest in channel training," John Leh said. "However, aligning learning architecture with partner program objectives isn't easy. It's important to know what's possible, so your technology choices make a measurable difference."

Why Learning Leaders and Business Partner Managers Should Attend

As an extension of an organization's sales team, channel partners and their employees have unique training needs. They often represent products from multiple vendors, and they’re bombarded with information from all sides. If manufacturers don't foster product awareness and affinity, they risk losing partner mindshare — and ultimately, sales.

Channel partners need easy access to content that helps them:

  • Learn about products and services more quickly,
  • Manage their representatives more efficiently and
  • Sell more effectively.

Above all, partners want evidence that participating in your training program improves their overall business results.

These demands can't be fulfilled by a typical employee LMS. Instead, a different kind of learning platform has emerged to fulfill the unique requirements of partner learning programs.

In this webinar, two of the learning industry's most experienced, enthusiastic technology advocates clarify the key business, functional and technical differences that set channel learning platforms apart from employee-oriented learning management systems. They also share examples of successful channel learning technology solutions, and discuss the kind of business outcomes organizations should expect.
