New Strategic Alliance Supports Global Delivery of World-Class Channel Sales Training

Jersey City, NJ, Research Triangle Park, NC and Bradenton, FL (August 08, 2019) Enterprise Channel Management leader Zift Solutions and Sales Excellence International are partnering to deliver world-class channel sales training anytime and anywhere through engaging, on-demand eLearning and scenario-based experiences. Sales Excellence is the latest strategic partner to join the Zift Zone, a marketplace connecting Zift customers to its growing ecosystem of trusted and certified agencies, applications, and service providers, all dedicated to driving channel success.

“We are thrilled to add Sales Excellence to the Zift Zone and believe our strategic alliance will be a game-changer for companies committed to success through the channel-partner sales model,” said Gordon Rapkin, CEO of Zift Solutions. “Bringing Sales Excellence together with ZiftONE’s inherent learning management capabilities delivers leading-edge learning technology, sales-focused content, and collaborative processes to drive breakthrough sales results and win more business.” 

As a Zift Zone service partner, Sales Excellence will provide their Channel Sales Excellence™ program, tailored either to suppliers who sell through channel partners or specifically for channel partners who sell direct to end customers. The two learning streams can also be delivered together to provide a complete roadmap for suppliers and partners to maximize their revenue results by working together.  

The Channel Sales Excellence™ curriculum includes a certification framework, which is ideal for companies who need to onboard new partners, maximize engagement, as well as improve partner retention. Suppliers can now offer sales skills training to their channel partners, funded by either the supplier or the partner, as a value-added differentiator to gain mind-share and even aid in new-partner recruitment.    

“We are very excited about joining the Zift Solutions community,” said Bill Stinnett, President of Sales Excellence. “We’ve seen the addition of a strong sales skills training component, combined with whatever product training our clients already provide, help to ensure partner success and drive sales growth for both partners and suppliers.”
