Vodafone has announced that Samsung has become an ‘Exclusive Smartphone Partner’ of its business.connected initiative that provides free training and resources to boost the digital capabilities of the UK’s small and medium enterprises (SMEs). With the partnership, businesses will get access to more courses and Samsung will participate in webinars and workshops.
Samsung’s partnership with Vodafone is already starting to bear fruit, there are already two e-learning options that offer an introduction to Office 365 on the go and setting up your business on the go, there’s a video workshop about increasing your digital security, and tomorrow there will be a 60-minute webinar discussing business security and increasing productivity. To access these materials, check out the Samsung section on the business.connected website.
Commenting on the new, Joe Walsh, Director of B2B at Samsung, said:
“As the pillar of our communities and backbone of our economy, it’s imperative that large organisations go above and beyond to ensure small businesses get the support they need to ensure their long-term preservation. We are delighted to be joining this great initiative with Vodafone as an exclusive smartphone partner, and hope our courses go a long way to helping entrepreneurs maximise online opportunities.”
According to Vodafone, the business.connected initiative has helped more than 65,000 SMEs across the UK level up digitally. It said that the most popular courses with businesses have been those on digital marketing and boosting productivity. By the middle of the year, Vodafone hopes that it can help to upskill 150,000 SMEs around the UK.
