Greater incentives for local partners as Zebra unveils new channel program

“Zebra is more committed to the channel than ever before."

Global tech company Zebra Technologies has announced the creation of a new channel partner program, which will enable and reward growth for Zebra’s channel partners who are investing in driving value for end user customers.

Built with input from Zebra’s global partner ecosystem, the new program will also make it easier for channel partners to expand their relationship with Zebra and deliver innovative solutions to customers.

“Zebra is more committed to the channel than ever before and our new program will provide expanded resources and capabilities - demonstrating the strength of our business and how we are better together,” says Eileen Eck, Vice President, Global Channel Strategy, Marketing and Operations, Zebra Technologies.

“Our partner program will be closely aligned with our vision of creating a smarter, more connected global business community and we will work with our partners to help them differentiate themselves, better serve our end users and seize the opportunities presented by enterprise asset intelligence.”

Starting in January 2016, Eck says Zebra’s new channel program will identify, promote and serve channel partners and make it easier for them to conduct business with Zebra and be rewarded for providing value to customers.

“The customer-centric partner program will unify the best of Zebra’s award-winning PartnersFirst program and the PartnerEmpower program to encompass a more inclusive channel ecosystem that addresses the needs of distributors, independent software vendors (ISVs), resellers and system integrators (SIs),” Eck adds.

Furthermore, Eck says Zebra will differentiate engagement and support for partners who invest in and are committed to Zebra and demonstrate competencies to address changing market needs and trends to better serve customers.

Including training, education and incentives to partners, Eck says the new channel program will “simplify pricing to drive competitive advantage and profitable opportunities” and offer a consistent global program framework with regional flexibility to address local market differences.

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.
