Programme with four-tier certification status launched in November
Onecom and Carphone Warehouse Business have been named two of the inaugural Elite Partners in Samsung’s new Samsung One partner programme.
The two providers are the first to gain the top-tier status in the new programme, which launched on November 5.
The programme features a variety of training, product information and reward assets to help participating partners drive growth, supported by a dedicated bespoke iOS and Android-compatible app.
The Elite certification is the highest of four statuses that participating partners can aspire to, the others being Advanced, Authorised and Registered.
“For these, we understand there is no one-size-fits-all approach, and therefore we’ve created these four tiers which will cater to specific business needs, depending on their unique goals and growth ambition,” said Samsung director of B2B Joe Walsh.
“Our aim within all these tiers is to provide the support and motivation our partners need to deliver their individual business objectives, whether that’s through the Elite tier, or our Registered partners.”
“Our teams are committed to providing outstanding technical solutions and services to the businesses we work with, and product expertise is at the heart of this,” said Onecom CEO Darren Ridge. “As a long-standing Samsung partner, we are excited to be awarded Elite status and to be the first to enjoy the benefits Samsung One will bring to our people, our business and, ultimately, our customers.
Dixons Carphone B2B director Carlos Pestana added: “As Samsung’s largest mobile and tablet B2B supplier in the UK our Carphone Warehouse Business colleagues are dedicated to providing customers with a detailed understanding of how best to leverage the Samsung ecosystem. We pride ourselves on having expert colleagues that can truly put the customers’ needs first and this collaboration with Samsung further enhances our already extensive colleague training programmes.”
