Train To Gain
Posted on 18/11/2011
Nimans is planning an enhanced training programme throughout 2012, providing resellers with increased skills and knowledge to drive their businesses further forward.
One of the final courses of 2011 saw resellers brush up on their technical knowledge about Panasonic’s NCP comms platform – inspiring one novice reseller to take the first steps on the road to success.
Dealers from across the north of England attended the two-day engineering course at Nimans’ Manchester headquarters, home to an in-house training academy that covers a complete spectrum of topics and brands – from sales advice to high calibre installation techniques and new product developments.
The NCP course covered configuration, unified PC programming, integrated DECT functionality, basic programming and all VoIP Options as well as auto attendant and voicemail capabilities.
One Manchester-based IT dealer who only moved into telecoms a few months ago, said he found the course extremely beneficial. “I learned more in the first day about telecoms than I had in the previous 12 months,” he explained. “We’ve recently added CCTV and telecoms to our product portfolio so this course was a great starting point. It was good grounding about the NCP system and telecoms in general. The knowledge will be extremely valuable as we continue to grow. We chose Panasonic because it has a reputation of being easy to install and sell – and on the evidence so far we are very happy to have chosen this route. Training from Nimans is the missing link for us.”
Nimans’ Head of System Sales, Paul Burn, said the company will continue to develop its reseller training programmes throughout 2012.
“Our training courses are specifically designed for resellers of all abilities. It is very gratifying to hear the positive feedback from the NCP event as it is always our number one objective to inspire business growth. 2012 will see us continue to build on our reputation as a high quality training provider, equipping customers with the skills and technical know-how to embrace new markets and develop revenue. This is particularly important in an economic climate that remains very challenging.”
