Edvantage group, Europe’s leading e-learning company, will formally launch its Channel Partner Programme at Learning Technologies Conference & Exhibition, London, January 2011. After a very successful 2010, the Company is seeking to extend its services within its current markets (UK and Nordics) whilst expanding into additional territories in Europe and the rest of the world.

Edvantage group recently announced its partnership with SuccessFactors, one of the world’s leading business execution software vendors, and this partnership coupled with the new Channel Partner Programme is core to the company’s growth strategy over the next five years.

Thomas Berglund, CEO Edvantage group, commented, “Now is the perfect time for us to be launching our new Channel Partner Programme –2010 was a terrific year for the company in terms of both sales and product development and we feel that our SaaS products are well suited to being sold through Channel Partners.”

Mike Newton, UK Sales & Channel Director Edvantage group explains, “We have been working closely with several partners over the last few years and gained a lot of experience in what makes a programme successful. Our new Channel Partner Programme will help partners to quickly introduce new revenue streams as well as support Edvantage group’s continued growth.”

The new Channel Partner Programme will initially focus upon establishing partners headquartered in the UK, as well as working with SuccessFactors’ partners located throughout Europe. Personnel within selected partners will receive certificated training in how to resell and implement the company’s SaaS-based (Software-as-a-Service) authoring tool (CourseBuilder) and Learning Management System (Learning Gateway). Partners will also be able to call upon the company’s range of award-winning content development and consulting services as required
