After the member presentations, a couple of new resources announced for partners were discussed. First was the Community Portal for Servers, www.officeserver.in . Members were informed that in just a couple of weeks of the launch, the Portal has more than 70 registrations from members and Customers. The Forums have become active . Partners have access to a Confidential Forum which is not accessible to Customers.
The next resource discussed was www.sbscpal.com which is a Portal for Partners who offer solutions to Customers between 5 and 300 PC’s. This is an International website with Content from all over the World.
The next resource which is exclusive to IAMCP members is Partner Skills Matrix . Here the Top 2 Skill sets of each Partner would be displayed which will help in Partnering.
Next we had a Presentation cum Demo on Groove by the Groove MVP, Mr. Ashok Hingorani. He gave a fantastic presentation on Groove . Most of the members were unaware of what Groove can do. There were many questions from the Partners . At the end of it, all were convinced that there exists a great potential for Groove in Businesses of all sizes.
The Groove presentation was followed by a short presentation on IAMCP . This was followed by Speed Dating , a unique Networking Concept followed within IAMCP . Members expressed their view that there should be more time allocated to SPEED DATING. Probably in future meetings, this will be taken care of.
At the end of the meeting, the attendees were of unanimous opinion that IAMCP Platform is a great Networking Platform which can help in building Business .
