Trend Micro throws more incentives at partners

A/NZ partners will have access to service fulfillment bonus

Security vendor, Trend Micro has updated its channel program to include more incentives and discounts for partners.

This involves a deal registration up front discount increase across all partner tiers including Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Partners who complete training and are recognised as a specialist will also receive additional upfront discounts.

A service fulfillment bonus, which is unique to A/NZ partners, has also been introduced. This is an additional rebate paid to the partner if they complete an installation of Trend Micro technology and receive a positive customer satisfaction survey result.

This aims to encourage partners to invest in technical expertise and expand their businesses into managed services.

Partners can also access free online training and certification courses to help specialise in areas such as Cloud and data centre security, complete user protection, custom defence and small business.

“We wanted to recognise and reward those Trend Micro partners who are investing time in training and specialisation without penalising those partners for whom additional training and technical specialisation isn’t possible,” Trend Micro A/NZ enterprise sales, channel and distribution director, Indi Siriniwasa, said.

“We want to encourage and support our channel partners to be able to sell and service Trend Micro’s security suite to their customers in the best possible way and allow them to increase their profit while doing it.”

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.
