The tools guide partners through each step of the sales cycle, from cold calling to upgrading customer infrastructure.

“The enhancements to Avnet’s tools demonstrate a clear understanding of the resources partners need to identify, pursue and close new business opportunities quickly," said Tom LaRocca, vice president, Channel Solutions and Go to Market, Oracle.
