Business Microvar Inc. and New Horizons Computer Learning Centers Offer Hands-On Training
Business Microvar Inc., the Midwest’s largest Microsoft Business Solutions software and services provider, and Minneapolis New Horizons Learning Centers, the world’s largest independent IT training company, are partnering to offer small and medium businesses Test Drives of Microsoft Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software.
“We developed the Test Drive concept to allow sales,
marketing and support personnel the opportunity to engage in a hands-on trial
of Microsoft CRM rather than watching a demonstration at a seminar,” commented
Brian McMurray, Business Microvar Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Test
Drives give clients a classroom style opportunity to experience the power of
Microsoft CRM software.”
Instructors will walk participants through key features of the recently released Microsoft CRM software. Participants will then have the opportunity to try out Microsoft CRM for themselves and review its ability to automate sales processes, streamline management of accounts and orders as well as manage customer support requests to resolution.
“We have historically assisted our clients in helping them become more productive on the software applications they use,” commented John Myhre, Minneapolis New Horizons Computer Learning Center President. “Partnering with Business Microvar allows us the opportunity to offer a low-risk way for businesses to experience and evaluate Microsoft CRM and determine if it will help them achieve their business goals. Through our valued partners and exposure to new technology we hope to provide businesses open sessions like the CRM test drive to help assist in the decision making process prior to the purchase and implementation of any software applications.”
Two-hour Test Drives are scheduled to run from June to December at the New Horizons Computer Learning Center. Business professionals who are interested in but have not yet purchased Microsoft CRM are encouraged to attend in order to experience Microsoft CRM first hand and judge if it is an appropriate software application for their company.
“We are very excited about this unique partnership with New
Horizons Learning Centers,” said John Hendrickson, Business Microvar CEO. “Test
Drives at New Horizons Computer Learning centers assures that sales, marketing
and support personnel will have a unique opportunity to evaluate Microsoft CRM
in a low-pressure, risk-free learning environment.”
