Portal Achieves IBM Platinum Partner Status
Portal is able to leverage its strong relationship with IBM to deliver truly transformative technology solutions for customers.
BRACKNELL, UK – 12, January 2017 – Portal, a leading business and technology consultancy, today announced it has achieved Platinum status in IBM’s PartnerWorld program. The Platinum Partner status recognises Portal’s specialist competencies as a value-plus IBM solution provider.
“Customers now have the confidence of knowing they are teaming up with an IBM Business Partner that consistently delivers the highest possible levels of excellence,” said Jonathon Bradshaw, Managing Director of Portal.
“Alongside recognising our dedicated and professional approach to delivering high level services and solutions, the IBM Platinum Partner status affirms the breadth of our abilities when working with a unique variety of customer business models.”
In February 2016, IBM announced it was restructuring its global Partner Program, refining the existing programme and introducing new partner levels: Registered, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The new elite Platinum Partner level is reserved for those providers with the ability to deliver high value transformative solutions and who have achieved the highest levels of customer satisfaction, technical and sales certifications, sales success and verified client references.
Portal’s new IBM Platinum Partner status will generate significant payback for its customers. These benefits include:
- Escalated access to IBM specialists, experts and knowledge resources – ensures customers gain top level, cutting edge, insights and expertise
- First sight of new IBM product releases – ensures customers are first in line to hear about, and get their hands on, the latest technology innovations
- Freedom to select IBM products by suitability, not availability – so it always delivers the most appropriate solution for individual customers
- Preferential pricing from IBM - ensures customers achieve outstanding ROI from their technology investments
