Hosting and managed services for small to midsized companies and partner firm, Verio, is offering weekly training sessions to its network of hosting resellers. Designed to encourage online interaction between viaVerio Partner Program experts and new resellers, the web training sessions will include a range of topics for the small and midsized business market.
Existing resellers are anticipated to benefit from training sessions on new web hosting and managed services being rolled out to the viaVerio community. The viaVerio Partner Program provides SMB resellers with access to a variety of high-value hosting and managed services, as well as volume discounts, private label opportunities, and technical, sales and marketing support. Resellers can rely on the viaVerio training series to enhance the portfolio of services they offer to meet their clients’ needs.

Ongoing training and communication with Verio’s channel team can help transform a viaVerio reseller’s business to realize more profitable, low-maintenance business opportunities in the SMB Web hosting and managed services market.
