At the end of June we launched the new SMB partner portal to provide a one-stop shop with everything you need to successfully sell XenApp Fundamentals to small to mid-size customers. I am delighted to say that we have had a tremendous response…  

  More than 600 partners have logged in within the first six weeks, and 75% of those partners have downloaded the new XenApp Fundamentals 3.0 training. Hundreds have also downloaded brochures, whitepapers and demand generation materials.

For those of you who haven’t visited the site yet and are looking for comprehensive training tools for XenApp Fundamentals, you will find the new training tools are just what you’ve been looking for. The two-hour comprehensive training video will walk you through the installation and configuration process step by step.  It can be a great tool for a group training session, which is precisely what Aleks Mednis of APM Systems is doing.  When he learned about this comprehensive training presentation, he was very excited about the opportunity to gather his sales and technical teams together for a lunch-n-learn training session with everyone together.  It’s the perfect way to ensure everyone gets trained with a group Q&A afterwards.

If you’re looking for training on something specific or you don’t have the two hours needed to sit through the full training session then check out the new Tech Bites – four 5 – 15 minute XenApp Fundamentals technical training videos developed specifically to address the technical topics you ask about most, including licensing, security and printing.

You may also want to take the opportunity to attend one of the many live training sessions we’ll be hosting with independent consultants on various topics, including how to install XenApp Fundamentals with Microsoft’s Small Business Server.  Due to great response we’ll be hosting this live webinar again on 10th September.  Also scheduled for 17th September, due to popular request ,  is ‘ The value of XenApp Fundamentals on Terminal Services’, where you’ll see examples of how partners have sold XenApp Fundamentals into existing Terminal Services customers to address issues with the remote access environment.

All of this and more is available at [citrix.com/partners/smb|www.citrix.com/partners/smb].  I hope you’ll check it out!
