Schneider Electric launched a Centre of Excellence – Edge Infrastructure in collaboration with its Elite Data Centre Partners in India. This unique initiative allows the end customers to visit the partners’ premises and experience the Edge Solutions of Schneider Electric, first hand. The second such Center of Excellence was inaugurated recently at Schneider Electric’s Elite Partner, Central Data Systems, Bangalore by Mr. Pankaj Sharma, Executive Vice President – Secure Power Division, Schneider Electric. The first such customer experience zone was launched at the premises of our Elite Partner – Mahavir Sys Power Pvt. Ltd, Mumbai last year.
Elite Data Center partners are part of Schneider Electric’s channel partner programme, who are offered clear and differentiated paths allowing partners to leverage pricing and benefits, gain full access to Schneider Electric’s network of qualified and dedicated solution engineers, and ongoing support and visibility to where the market is going and where partners can take their business.
