We're happy to announce that our online university for sales agents, Merchant Warehouse University has been named a finalist in the American Business Awards 9th Annual Stevie Awards.
We're up against two other noteworthy competitors with some really innovative solutions in the Best Training Site category, but having just launched this portal last Fall, we're excited about the recognition we're receiving.
On September 23, 2010, Merchant Warehouse launched Merchant Warehouse University, or MWU, a free online resource center designed to provide industry thought-leadership and sales tools to independent sales agents looking to improve their industry knowledge and sales skills. The essence of MWU is that it provides unbiased views and webinars about the payment industry and best business practices. MWU provides a centralized, online resource for free webinars and other thought-leadership pieces about industry best practices, new regulations and issues and business and sales management tips. Since its launch, webinars generated between 200-400 attendees, and the site has been 2,000 unique visitors with over 15,000 page views.
Due to the essential need for a free online learning center for sales agents, Merchant Warehouse launched MWU with a goal to successfully supply a comprehensive online educational and training resource for independent agents looking to further their knowledge and expertise about issues and lead-generation opportunities in the payments industry. Through its offerings of free webinars and thought-leadership pieces, MWU better prepares agents to achieve their full potential and grow their businesses, by updated agents on industry regulations, trends and solutions, agents and ISOs are equipped to both consult merchants on what is most beneficial for their businesses, and sell them the appropriate solutions.
