Tech distributor Exertis has announced a new partnership with Boxlight, a provider of online, self-paced professional development courses based around Microsoft Teams.

The aim is to upskill users into effective use of the platform and allow businesses to improve their productivity, Exertis said.

Boxlight offers CPD-certified course content that promises to always be up-to-date, relevant and to high quality standard. These products have been designed to help students learn more effectively and develop the skills they require to succeed, the firm says, while teachers can also do more in the classroom and make lessons more productive.

With this new partnership, Exertis is bulking up its overall Microsoft Teams capabilities, as the distributor continues with its aim of providing full solutions to customers.

“We’re delighted to be able to add this value-added service to our reseller partners,” commented Greg Bennett, head of AV Solutions at Exertis Pro AV. “The new user adoption platform provides users with a self-paced online set of modules to learn about the functions and usability of Microsoft Teams and Teams Rooms.

“This hugely compliments our Microsoft Teams offering to the channel, along with our pre-sales consultancy team and comprehensive range of certified Microsoft Teams Rooms products and solutions.”

Founded in 1985, US-based Boxlight says its mission is to be a leader of innovative and effective educational technology solutions that improve learning and engagement.

Ultimately, the firm’s technology is designed to reduce technology disruption and improve student engagement, providing content that is easy-to-use, engaging, and valuable.

“We continue to drive our Professional Development self-paced courses and training solutions to suit the needs of end users,” said Darren Brown, Boxlight Partner Manager. “We offer the freedom to choose when and where to complete your course.

“This new and exciting partnership with Exertis highlights the movement to hybrid self-development using software and technology.”
