In this edition we have some key information for Business Partners about the changes to IBM PartnerWorld, help with how to navigate the new BP Console, information and how to register for key events, Q4 storage promotions and a reminder on how to stay social.
On 1st January 2017 IBM PartnerWorld is changing, and it’s important that you’re ready. New level requirements will be in place to determine BP’s as Silver, Gold or Platinum. You can track your progress online using the new BP Console which launched on the 9th September. The new console lets you see what competencies you hold, where your revenue currently stands against the target for each partner level, and how many customer references have been completed.
Supporting you through the change
Don’t worry if you’re confused by the console or the new IBM PartnerWorld classifications. We’re holding individual Partner Clinics in London, Harrogate and Nottingham. These confidential one-to-one sessions will give you the chance to log-in to your partner console and talk through any worries, concerns or confusions you may have.
London sessions take place at our Dowgate office on the 8th and 9th November. Sessions in Harrogate and Nottingham take place on the 23rd and 24th of November. Book your place now by emailing Helen Easton.Register now
Q4 might only just be underway, and you probably have an eye on your end of year targets, however, it’s time to start planning for 1H 2017 - if you haven’t already started. Software Business Partners who are looking for co-marketing need to submit their applications online by 18th November.
Of course, your Arrow marketing team are here to help you. We’ll work with you to develop plans that will grow your business, and provide support to fill in the funding request. For more information or get some support, get in touch with Alex or Karolina today.
