Certifications, Incentives and Sales Enablement Tools Empower Channel Partners to Increase Value to Enterprises; Program Drives Strategic Solutions Selling Opportunities
SAN JOSE, CA – Mar 18, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the flash storage solutions company, today launched the Nimble Storage Partner Program, a global channel program that enables and rewards partners that resell the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform. The new program features the introduction of certification levels, incentives, and unique sales enablement tools. In addition, Nimble will offer programs in alignment with its alliance partners, including Cisco and VMware, to create strategic solutions selling opportunities for joint partners. The new program is designed to enhance Nimble partners’ business opportunities and increase the value partners deliver to joint customers.
As part of the Partner Program, Nimble will recognize three levels of certification for partners that sell products and solutions through the channel: Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

Certified Nimble partners are well positioned to win new customer accounts, drive growth for their business, and differentiate their company from the competition. Depending on certification level, Nimble will provide enhanced resources such as on-demand demonstrations, networking opportunities at both local and national events, and branded marketing materials for increased awareness and engagement.
