BASKING RIDGE, NJ--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) -
- Interactive website showcases strategies, tactics and tools to drive increased sales
- Kickoff session is scheduled for today in EMEA and on December 7 in the Americas
Avaya, a global provider of business communications and collaboration systems and services, today announced the launch of its fifth-annual Virtual Partner Forum to help Avaya Connect channel partners accelerate growth.
Available online beginning today, the forum is hosted on a highly interactive website that showcases the latest strategies, tactics and tools that partner companies can use to represent Avaya solutions successfully. Partners can access streaming video on demand and store presentations and documents in a personalized virtual briefcase for future use. The forum will remain active throughout the coming year.
Two special interactive kickoff events will introduce Avaya Connect partners to the site. One event is scheduled today for those in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, while a second is scheduled for December 7 for the Americas. Participants will hear a strategic update from senior executives and have the opportunity to text chat with them in real time.
Participation in the Virtual Partner Forum is free to all Avaya Connect channel partners worldwide. Registration is available online.
Thousands of channel partners have participated in Avaya Virtual Partner Forums since the launch of the program in 2008, with Avaya surveys showing that 99% of attendees feel it is an "excellent use of their time."
"Avaya's Virtual Partner Forum is one of the many tools we use to keep Avaya Connect channel partners well-informed, especially those who are unable to attend an annual conference in person. They can readily access a wide range of channel-specific information on their own schedule -- including proven strategies for delivering greater value to their customers and achieving a competitive advantage in the marketplace."
Patti Moran, senior director, GTM Marketing and Communications, Avaya
