Symantec introduces new sales incentive scheme
Security software vendor looking to grow revenues through the channel
A new incentive scheme from Symantec will allow partners to earn and redeem points when they complete selected sales enablement and marketing activities in future.
The Symplus programme, which is being introduced in the Middle East and Africa, as well as Europe, is designed to provide resellers with extra incentives to grow their revenue with Symantec.
Partners can ‘spend' the points they have earned on various online or in-store purchases, according to Symantec.
The scheme is supported by the launch of a multi-lingual website that will provide Symantec partners with access to a number of features, including 24/7 programme support, sales resources, detailed individual account overviews and access to the Symplus online community.
Jason Ellis, EMEA channel VP at Symantec, said: "Symplus is just one of the latest additions we've made to our EMEA partner programme in order to reinforce our commitment to helping our channel partners increase their revenue with Symantec. By providing financial incentives for best practice and successful performance, we hope to show our partners that we value their loyalty and relationship with Symantec."
Symplus will operate on three different levels, allowing resellers to progress through the programme as they grow. The security software vendor adds that there are also additional benefits available to those on other reward schemes.
