Chief pioneers mount solution certification12 May 2010
Customers who complete the Certified Partner Program will receive exclusive benefits from Chief as well as earning InfoComm CTS Rus and CEDIA CEUs. The new initiative is designed to deliver interactive product and installation training "to improve customers’ business results, differentiate their business and improve overall mount product knowledge."
The result of 3,500 development hours, the Certified Partner Program is the latest innovation from Chief, whose extensive product range includes the WM110S short-throw projector single stud wall arm (pictured).
The Program incorporates over 13 hours of content and 46 videos featuring Chief products and installation solutions. The material is divided into two tracks – one for those who install or deal with technical aspects, and one for dealers or sales people focusing on configuring solutions or selling products. Each track is focused on their specific needs and takes them through scenarios in common applications, such as home theatres, classrooms, hotel lobbies and corporate offices.
Participants should expect to complete an entire track in approximately three-to-six hours. Many modules take 30 minutes or less to complete, so users can come back as often as they need to until the entire track is completed.
Chief marketing director Laurie Englert commented: "Putting together the Certified Partner Program with our customers has been extremely beneficial. They not only helped to define the framework of the programme, but their input has helped us customise each and every module to ensure we are zeroing in on what they need to know to make their installs faster, their specifying easier and overall improve their business results."
