Simplify. Succeed. Trust. Grow. At Commvault, our vision has always been a simple one: provide enablement and demand creation so our partners can grow their business more easily. By delivering frictionless sales processes, we’re building a vibrant community of profitable and engaged partner advocates. Through our industry-leading technology portfolio and support teams, we have been building this group over the last two decades.
While technology and professional services provide the foundation for any good business collaboration, all stable and long-standing relationships are based on something more profound – trust. According to recent research from Edelman, a global communications expert, trust has changed profoundly in the past year, with organizations specifically upgrading criticality of trust in the business relationships within their control.
This trend is most clearly reflected in our Partner Success Desk (PSD). Over the past two quarters our sales, technical and administrative teams within the PSD have worked tirelessly to expand our “trust commitment” to our entire partner community, and the feedback from our ecosystem continues to be positive.
We are listening closely to their responses. The continual increase in engagement with our PSD team by our partners reflects the business benefits of developing relationships within trusted communities. With 451 live partner chats across sales, technical and operations in Q4 and EMEA alone, the PSD represents a complete and reliable single source of truth resource for our partners.
With approximately a third of our partners in EMEA now leveraging the PSD to address queries and problem solving, this central point of access has made it easier than ever before for our partners to trust and use Commvault solutions to their full potential. This, in turn, is making it easier for our partners to help their end users with more comprehensive, fit-for-purpose solutions.
The PSD and its global team is well placed to play a significant role in Commvault’s “partner-first” approach, and my commitment to you – our partners – is that we will continue to strive to make it easier to trust, sell, implement and manage Commvault’s solutions to your customers in 2019 and beyond.
The PSD is available to all Commvault registered partners with access to the Partner Portal. Sign up or talk to your PSD representative today.
