Eaton set to boost sales with new incentive scheme
Vendor incentivises partners with Windows Server 2003 end of support incentive plan
Power management company Eaton, has launched a channel incentive scheme to reward its partners, and support the leverage of opportunities offered by the end of support (EoS) of Windows Server 2003.
The vendor said the incentive is being offered through the PowerAdvantage Explorer initiative, part of its umbrella PowerAdvantage Partner programme.
The vendor said the rewards will provide partners with sales enablement-based incentives, including training and revenue generation rewards for power management system upgrades, resulting from migrations from Windows Server 2003.
"With many companies switching to new operating systems, there are significant benefits of upgrading to a more sophisticated power management system that should be highlighted," said Hany Maurice, regional channel and alliance leader, Eaton Middle East.
"One of the most prominent of these being protection against costly power failures, that can put data security at risk. PowerAdvantage Explorer offers our IT partners the opportunity to highlight to their customers the advantages to be gained through migration and showcasing their own added value in this core area of expertise."
Throughout the incentive period, participating partners will earn points from sales of selected Eaton products and by taking part in various enablement activities. Points can then be exchanged for rewards, with the grand prize being a trip to Cape Canaveral, Florida for a zero gravity flight.
Other prizes according to Eaton include flying experiences and e-vouchers. The incentive scheme is carefully formulated to ensure all participants, regardless of the size of their company, have equal opportunity to compete for the top prizes, the company added.
