Rainmaker Awarded Three-Year Contract With QLogic to Grow Global Training Registrations, Productivity and Revenue
Rainmaker Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMKR), a leading provider of sales and marketing solutions combining hosted application software and execution services, today announced it has been awarded a three-year contract by QLogic, a leading supplier of high-performance networking solutions to Global 2000 corporations, to deploy its live, virtual and on-demand ViewCentral Classroom and eLearning Solutions.

Rainmaker's ViewCentral platform is a fully-hosted, online solution that supports all aspects of live and virtual training management and administration, and will be deployed to enhance the performance and productivity of QLogic's blended in-person, virtual and on-demand training programs to customers and channel partners on a global basis.

The ViewCentral platform uniquely addresses the demands specific to customer and partner-facing training programs including: automation of pricing, packaging, discounting, posting, self-registration, eCommerce, credit card transactions, email communications, reporting, and targeted remarketing.

"We selected Rainmaker because their solution was customer and channel partner focused, not a bulky talent management system. This externally focused approach has resulted in a system that best suited our needs to train and certify our customers and partners," said Jeff Nesler, Sr. Director of Global Services for QLogic. "Within one month, our developers were able to deploy a fully functional branded Training Portal."

"Rainmaker's ViewCentral solution helps clients grow their training revenues and registrations and improve productivity, while greatly reducing training management and administrative overhead," said Michael Silton, Rainmaker's CEO. "The QLogic agreement is significant for us in that it is a three-year engagement with this premier client. And, at the same time, it represents a growing number of agreements to deploy our high-end training solutions to an ever-expanding group of prestigious, global brands."
