Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa, a leading international distributor of business technology, today announced the launch of its engaging digital Microsoft World platform. A single source for partners looking to accelerate their Microsoft journey, this interactive visual dashboard takes a partner on a trip around the world of Microsoft technologies, providing learnings, offering incentives, and assisting in driving competencies along the way.

The development of the digital experience is in direct response to a growing need amongst customers to continue to fast-track their partner competencies, irrespective of time, geography or whether they are working from an office or at home. Within Microsoft World, the Westcon team has packaged tools around the Azure, Modern Workplace and Dynamics 365 offerings, within an online visual dashboard.

“With Microsoft World, we are taking a further step in creating tools for the new business normal. A world where digital-first and customer-always, are the key business drivers for ensuring business resiliency into the future," says Thiani Naicker, Microsoft Lead – Sub Saharan Africa at Westcon Sub-Saharan Africa. "It is with this that at Westcon, we have taken the strategic decision to drive as many traditional tools as we can into the digital realm. Helping to escalate the customer experience for our partner's looking to improve their business acumen around the full remit of Microsoft technologies."

When enrolling as a traveller to the Microsoft World, partners are given access to training material, interactive modules, hands-on training, and training paths. The further a partner ventures into the portal, the more incentives and rewards they unlock and can earn, through trophy's, vouchers, and certifications. Modules are tailored to meet the needs of the individual's role and career scope, including modules for developers, sales teams, pre-sales, and IT administrators to learn and earn. The end goal is for individuals to become Microsoft certified within the Westcon-Comstor Academy and for business owners to ensure that they can maintain and improve their competency levels through an easy to use and secure all-in-one dashboard.
