Back in July, Pinnacle began hosting the Commvault SMME Enrichment Programme (CSEP) and the first batch of companies taking part have now completed the programme.

The programme provides SMEs with sales training, direct assistance, practical coaching and regular networking sessions. The ultimate goal of CSEP is to train SMEs to become resellers of Commvault solutions.

“We are committed to the empowerment of BBBEE SMME partners in South Africa. This programme was created to facilitate and support these resellers by providing them with not only the tools they need to become vetted as a partner but also the soft skills they need to close deals,” said¬†Territory Account Manager at Commvault,¬†Mike Rees.

The companies which have completed the CSEP include:

  • Maktech ICT Services (PTY) LTD
  • Uncommon Legacy (PTY) LTD
  • Pacifield (PTY) LTD
  • Esizwe Group CC
  • Data Management Professionals South Africa (PTY) LTD
  • Enable Technology Corporation (PTY) LTD
  • Nambiti Technologies (PTY) LTD
  • Projectized Management (PTY) LTD
  • Ind_TechSolutions (PTY) LTD
  • Calibration IT Services (PTY) LTD.
  • Omni Africa

As the host of the programme, Pinnacle says it received an incredible initial response and hopes to expand the programme to include more SMEs.

“Our goal is to empower these SMME resellers to provide word-class ICT products to our customers with superior sales and technical expertise along with exceptional delivery. This will ultimately enable them to grow their business and develop professional areas that their team might be lacking in,” said Commvault and Inuvika Brand Manager at Pinnacle Enterprise Solutions, Samantha Naicker.

Congratulations to the SMEs and here’s hoping that Pinnacle is able to expand the programme to reach more businesses in future.
