Elite 2013 sales incentive competition recognises and rewards top performers

Melbourne-based managed services provider (MSP), Phoenix Austec, has been named WatchGuard Technologies’ highest growth partner in the security vendor’s Australian and New Zealand (A/NZ) Elite 2013 sales incentive competition.

Wellington-based IT hosting and infrastructure company, Resolve Technology, was recognised as the second highest growth partner for the region.

Within its north region (comprised of the ACT, NSW, NT, and Queensland), WatchGuard’s top expert partner for 2013 was IT solutions provider, Systemnet, followed by network services company, Territory Technology Solutions.

Consulting and services company, Solutions Plus Australia, was named top expert partner for the south region (which includes Victoria, Tasmania, SA, and WA), followed in second by MSP, Viatek Group.

Among the top professionals partners, ASI Solutions and CSW-IT topped the north and south regions, respectively, followed by NQLD Consultants and Datamerge.

“Following the company’s sales growth and performance in 2013, we are thrilled to recognise and reward the dedication and support of our partners and resellers,” WatchGuard A/NZ regional director, Pat Devlin, said.

“They play a significant role in the company’s success and we look forward to rewarding them through the Elite program with a unique and memorable experience in Malaysia.”

The four-day Malaysia trip will include a stay at the Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spa on the Sepang coast.

In 2012, WatchGuard rewarded its Elite winners with a trip to Fiji.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
