HDF SAS run successful Dell webinar for North West African and Moroccan partners
HDF is keen on engaging with its partners during the COVID-19 emergency
HDF SAS has just helped run their first major webinar on May 6, 2020, and the company were thrilled to have over 300 registered and at least 170 participants logged on for the event itself.
HDF SAS, in order to keep in touch with its partners during the COVID-19 crisis, and to keep business networks open, approached Dell to organise the webinar for its partners.
The activity was billed as a ‘Virtual Hands-On Lab DP DP4400 Webinar’ for Dell partners in North-West Africa and Morocco. The Dell team showed a live demo of the powerful protection that the IDPA offers with sections on backup and restore jobs, a look at the management console, quick search and more.
Main speaker presenting for Dell was Nawfal Saoud, Regional Sales Manager, EA region at Dell Technologies, Data Protection Solutions. Joining Nawfal was Badr Mazini, Sales Specialist, Data Protection Solutions, North and West Africa. Other Dell team members presenting were Mustapha El Aboudi, Inside System Engineer, Data Protection Solution Division, and Oumaima Tawfiq, Channel Distribution Marketing, EA region.
“Thanks to our Distributor HDF for giving us the opportunity to share with our valuable partners all the advantages of our IDPA solution and the unmatched performances it provides,” said Dell's Badr Mazini on LinkedIn.
Johny Rahme for HDF agreed the quality of the Dell product line helped the webinar to be a success. “Many partners from Morocco and NWA joined the webinar to understand how the simple, efficient, and powerful DP4400 can protect customer data with the best performance in a converged 2U appliance that offers backup, de-duplication, replication, recovery and cloud readiness,” added Johny.
How did the HDF team manage to make the webinar such a success, in these difficult times for business, with lock-down making many aspects of business difficult?
“We worked with Dell and decided on a topic and we advertised it on LinkedIn, via mailings and calls. It was a real success; so much so that the Dell team then congratulated us with messages on LinkedIn,” said Johny Rame from HDF SAS.
HDF is now planning a series of other webinars on different topics, working to reach out to end-users of specific big partners, and are starting very soon on a major digital campaign.
