Arrow ECS takes on sales and marketing for IBM Training
Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS has been selected by IBM to manage the sales and marketing for all of IBM training in addition to the delivery of IBM training that it already provides. This new approach to the marketing, sales and delivery of training under one roof have immediately started in the United Kingdom and also in the Nordics through its offices in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Building on a successful relationship in which Arrow ECS is already the sole ATP delivery partner in the UK, the selection of Arrow ECS as the IBM Business Partner network will help to accelerate the growth of skills and the adoption of IBM solutions in the global marketplace. Together with IBM, Arrow ECS will transform the IBM training business into a new model of education excellence by bringing all aspects of training together under the management of one provider. Clients who want to procure IBM software or systems training will now purchase these services directly through Arrow ECS Education. Placing the training provision and sales entirely with Arrow ECS will operate as an initial trial period that will be reviewed in the New Year. Arrow ECS will support this new approach with a significant sales team and marketing campaign. IBM will continue to focus on developing curriculums and content creation.
