Thai delight for top-selling Norton dealers
Aptec sales promotion concludes with all expenses paid trip for 20 resellers
20 UAE resellers have discovered that selling heaps of antivirus software can pay off in more ways than one after winning an all expenses paid trip to Thailand.
The resellers earned the jaunt to South East Asia at the end of last month after finishing top of the pile in a channel promotion to sell Symantec's Norton software that was launched by distributor Aptec last quarter.
According to Aptec, resellers had to achieve set targets under various categories, with the leading performers winning the opportunity to sample the delights of Bangkok and Pattaya over four days.
It is the first time Aptec has conceived such a programme for Norton partners, but Govind Haridas, business unit manager for security and storage, says it won't be the last.
"It has been quite successful and we would like to continue rewarding our loyal channel partners," he said.
Aptec says the aim of the sales programme was to improve market coverage, sharpen the focus of partners and enhance the branding of Norton products throughout the Channel.
