Asia Pacific - Further strengthening its position in the enterprise communications market, ALE has introduced a new strategic channel partner program that helps build revenue for partners with new models and helps enterprises harness the evolution of technology, while achieving tangible business outcomes.
ALE, which operates under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise brand, became an independent business in October 2014. In the months since, the business recognized an opportunity to rethink the traditional distribution model to align with market evolutions and create a new partner experience. The launch of the Value for Partners global program demonstrates a commitment to engagement, growth and focus to put partners at the center of opportunity.
The Value for Partners (V4P) program has three goals:
- To significantly cut the total cost of partnership using automation and simplification;
- To increase partner revenues using Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solutions through new opportunities and boosting customer adoption;
- To co-invest in joint transformation through training, automation and go-to-market investments.
To reinforce this new focus, seven Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Global Partners were presented Partner of the Year awards earlier this year within two distinct categories - Co-Creation of Value and Differentiation, and Personalized Connected Experience. http://bit.ly/1LJa1et
