To educate its Champions on the significance of having strong relations with various business stakeholders for a sustainable growth, RP tech India, country’s only value-added distributor concluded its flagship PCD Training program. Themed as ‘Connect & Conquer’, the two days training program was organized in association with leading technology brands Asus, AMD, HP, Microsoft and Lenovo.
