EMC Enhances ASN

HOPKINTON, Mass. -- EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC - News), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced it is strengthening its commitment to provide more services opportunities to Velocity Partners with the simplification of its Velocity Authorized Services Network (ASN) Program. EMC launched two new ASN program categories to meet the needs of partners around the world and has created a new quick start certification curriculum to reduce cost and time out of the office. These changes enable EMC Velocity Partners to maximize services opportunities and profitability across EMC's product and solutions portfolio.

EMC's Mitch Breen, Senior Vice President, Global Channel Strategies and Sales, said, "Velocity Partners want to deliver more services around EMC technology and solutions. We believe the enhancements to the EMC Authorized Services Network Program will offer qualified partners the opportunity to increase their profitability by more fully addressing customer's information technology requirements." Breen continued, "By simplifying the ASN Program, EMC is effectively enabling our valued Velocity Partners to get more engaged in our comprehensive and robust partner program."

The new ASN categories in the consolidated program are:

  • ASN Implement -- Partners are rigorously trained and certified to
    deliver a comprehensive portfolio of EMC's best in class implementation
    services with access to EMC Global Services proprietary tools and
    methodologies.
  • ASN Support -- Building on the ASN Implement category, partners are
    further trained and certified to provide customers the full range of
    support and maintenance services and are able to leverage EMC for
    technical escalation and logistics.
