AVOCENT CHOOSE LOYALTYNET TO PROVIDE NEW CHANNEL REWARDS PROGRAMME
Harwell, Oxfordshire - 20 August 2007
Avocent Rewards will be launched on 1st September 2007. Avocent, a leading global provider of IT infrastructure management solutions for enterprise data centres and the SME market has chosen Loyaltynet to operate the programme. The initiative is being run in association with Avocent's distributor, Gamma Global.
Channel partners will be rewarded for sales of Avocent products, which they register using their online accounts. Once members have accrued sufficient points they are able to claim a range of exciting rewards from the online catalogue. In addition to rewards such as experience days and high street vouchers, members are encouraged to aim for The Avocent Dream Reward. If a member earns over 5,000 points they can tell Loyaltynet the sort of reward they would like. Loyaltynet then calculates the value of the total points earned by that member and lets them know what can be offered.
As with many Loyaltynet based programmes, partner staff are encouraged to become more effective in how they sell products and services. Members are able to earn additional points by completing a range of online Avocent product tutorials.
Owen McKee, UK and Ireland Country Manager at Avocent said, "we recognise that the nature of incentives has changed significantly over the past few years. The Learn to Earn programme will enable us to attract and engage with best fit partners, and provide a compelling proposition to the end user."
Loyaltynet, The Partner Incentivisation Specialist, was founded in 2004 to help companies achieve greater sales by incentivising their dealers, distributors and resellers. The Loyaltynet web-based system allows companies to run their own branded online sales incentive programmes, as an extension of their portal, web site, or a specific micro site, and offers a wide range of exciting rewards. Programmes blend incentivisation with clients' existing product and sales training. Sales success is still rewarded, but programme members are also encouraged to complete product tutorials and sales training, making channel partners more effective in how they sell for both the short and long term.
At the start of a project Loyaltynet works closely with clients to ensure that the blended incentivisation programme is aligned to corporate goals. It then provides a fully outsourced programme including system configuration, hosting, administration and member support.
