Hello Performance Partners!

Summer is coming to a close with the start of football season and the beginning of a new school year.  If your year has been anything like mine, 2014 continues to fly by!

This month we completed some additional Training & Certification events including CloverBCM and our friends GCN from sunny Florida. Both events went really well, and we always like to share the feedback from our Performance Partners. Here’s what Chris Palermo, the CEO of GCN had to say about the training session:

“I saw that a lot of time was put into creating Probing and Qualifying Questions that any agent could ask their clients.  I really liked the Glossary of training terms defining terms such as RAID, SATA Drives, or SAN to name a few.  The video was very well done and the host explained all types of cloud that Internap offers and how to determine which products was best for the client. Finally, I liked that there was a certification test following the training.  It forced me to listen and pay attention to the training since I did not want to be the CEO that failed your test in front of his team.  Thanks to your team and the training, I was happy to get a 100% and pass with flying colors.”

I can verify that Chris did, indeed, ace his certification exam!  Congrats to Chris and the rest of our friends on the GCN team on becoming Internap certified.

Internap’s Channel Team is getting ramped up for Cloud Partners in New Orleans in just a few weeks. For those of you who will be making the trip, we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.  If you haven’t already, please schedule some time to meet with Mike Kowalski or Colm Armstrong. We have some interesting updates to share and would appreciate the chance to meet with you face to face.
