While mastering new technology isn’t usually “easy,” accessing the training necessary to do so should be. You’ve heard us say it many times: we’re on a mission to make working with us simpler and more profitable. Providing easy-to-access, quality training is a key part of that mission, which is why I’m so excited about the launch of our new training experience: Partner University.

Training on your terms

Partner University is a powerful tool that will help you and your employees stay up-to-date and ahead of the ever-changing needs of the market and your customers. The training modules themselves have not changed. You’ll still get the same high-quality training you and your employees expect – but now you’ll get it faster, in a format that’s easier to consume.
Here’s what’s new with Partner University:
  • Modern interface for a vastly improved UX. No more pop-ups!
  • Smart. This platform remembers where you left off, so you can return with ease. Search is more robust, and content has been streamlined and contained in one place.
  • Easy admin. The dashboard is sleek and clean, great for at-a-glance comprehension and intuitive for deeper dives. Plus a single sign on with a Microsoft account or Windows Live ID means employees don’t need to track down your organization’s MPN ID when they’re ready to take their training.
  • Reliable performance. Partner University runs on Azure, giving it a big leap forward in reliability.
  • Fast. With Azure on the backend, this system allows you to get in, get the training and information you need, and get on with your life.
The right training – easy to access, there when you need it, and delivered how you want it – can give you confidence and skills that will help drive your business to further success.

Making simplicity a reality

We are committed to modernizing the ways you, our partners, can engage with us – and Partner University is just one step we’re taking along the path to make streamlined, effective engagement a reality.
As I said earlier, learning new tricks isn’t always easy, but getting the tools you need to do so should be. We look forward to continuing this journey with you in order to make getting what you need, when you need it, as simple as it can be.
