An LMS makes the organization, coordination and implementation of training easier, simpler and more effective because it:

What is channel partner training?
One of the central goals of a channel partner strategy is to enable and empower your partners to sell your products. And the most powerful way to do this is through channel training.
This kind of training can, and should, be offered to anyone in your partner network. Like distributors, vendors, retailers, consultants, resellers, franchisees, contractors and suppliers.
But, what does a channel partner program look like in action? Imagine a retail organization that wants to ensure consistent standards across all stores so that customers are getting the best experience possible. This retailer would offer franchise or vendor training to its partner network.
Channel training creates more knowledgeable, empowered, and up-to-date partners. It’s also a much more effective and smarter process for partner management. Training your business associates will increase brand loyalty, ensure a consistently positive customer experience, boost sales, and ultimately drive revenue higher.

The benefits of channel training for an organization
There are many proven reasons for implementing channel partner training in an organization. Whether you have 10 or 100 partners, training your business associates should be an integral part of your growth strategy.
Channel partner enablement offers different benefits throughout the lifecycle of your extended network, from partner onboarding to compliance training and beyond.
Increase partner retention
First impressions matter. A strong partner onboarding process that impresses and equips channel partners with the information they need, has the ability to keep them with your organization for the long-term.
How do you reduce costs by training business associates? By reducing risk. When compliance training is part of a channel enablement process, partners are more likely to adhere to policies and operations which can help avoid costly mistakes.
Establish brand consistency
Partner onboarding in combination with ongoing training ensures a consistent customer service experience across your distribution and support network. This builds customer loyalty and repeat business for you and your channel partners.
Partner enablement is a huge part of channel building. Not only does training help increase channel partner sales but it will also boost revenue.
