SINGAPORE - Enterprise communications specialist ALE (operating under the brand Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise), has launched the SMB Champions League for its accredited independent resellers (IR).
Applicable from May 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015, the Partner Rewards Program will recognize IRs under two categories - Biggest and Fastest Achievers - for their overall business performance in driving sales for the Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch Suite for SMB, engineered specifically for SMB customers across APAC.
The OpenTouch Suite for SMB offers all-in-one, end-to-end converged solution for voice and data, with zero touch deployment. It is the perfect response to the social, mobile and visual forces currently driving the needs of the SMBs.
The Biggest Achievers category is open to IRs registered under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Partner Program. The accredited IR who achieves minimum ALE business with at least 20 percent growth during the program period, as against the earlier eight months, will compete in the Biggest Achievers category.
The Fastest Achievers category is open for existing as well as new IRs. New IRs need to get accredited by November 30, 2015 to participate in the SMB Champions League. A minimum threshold for Fastest Achievers category is set for IRs to achieve during the period of the scheme.
Top partners in each category will win quarterly rewards. The ultimate reward for top qualifying partners will be a fully-paid international travel to an exotic location.
The last date of registration to the program is June 30, 2015.
"The SMB Champions League has been designed to motivate existing partners to drive growth in their Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solutions business and at the same time to enrol and encourage new partners to become accredited and win rewards. We are seeing great traction for our products and solutions among large enterprises and SMBs in the regions," said Matthieu Destot, SVP & Head, ALE, APAC.
"With SMB Champions League our aim is to double the partner base. To help partners achieve their targets we will provide them value-added services including marketing, business development, pre-sales and integration support," Matthieu further added.
