IBM Business Partner Marks

IBM Platinum Business Partner

In January 2017 the programme levels changed to Registered, Silver, Gold or the top status - Platinum. Business Partners move up levels by demonstrating specific capabilities through competences, sales success, client satisfaction and verified client references.

IBM has relied on their channel partners to deliver exceptional service and to educate customers about emerging technology and to simplify everyday business challenges. With over 7,500 Business Partners in the UK alone it is often difficult to stand out from the crowd.

For the last 10 years, IBM has been channel friendly, passing on average 10 leads a day to relevant partners who hold the appropriate industry experience and hold the correct technical and sales certifications.
