Relationships of trust and understanding within your own business are crucial to every success. You may have relationships with key players from your in-house departments who play a part in the full cycle of your service delivery or product offering. Maybe your business relies on external suppliers to advise you of product choices, changes with demand, or best route to market. Your IBM software investment is no different!
In fact, as a foundation to your business processes and the interface to your customers, it could be the most important asset for which you need an experienced guide to work alongside.
IBM Accelerated Value Leaders (AVLs), are Trusted Advisors and client advocates who work with their assigned customers to learn about their businesses, their challenges, their infrastructures, and their goals. AVLs are seen as virtual members of the customer's team, but with many additional advantages! As a single point of contact, they are the customer's voice inside IBM, and they have a direct relationship with the IBM resources that can make a huge positive difference to customer's business changing decisions.
When should we upgrade? What is our longer-term strategy? How can we meet our business needs? How can we reduce our costs? What tools can we deploy to speed up performance? What should we be looking at to reduce time to market? How do we minimize risk? Is there a faster route to resolving issues? How can we adopt new technologies quickly? ... and more... much more.
AVLs are the nucleus of IBM's Software Accelerated Value Program, providing a valuable service by working alongside their customers, expertly steering projects (such as software migrations) to successful and profitable conclusions, providing crucial knowledge transfer along the way. When is comes to issue management (PMRs), Accelerated Value Program clients receive priority call handling. However, as prevention is more efficient than cure, customers with this Program will benefit significantly from the AVL's proactive problem prevention element of the offering.
