Gen-i offers discount scheme

GEN-I has initiated a discounted training promotion with Auldhouse Computer Training, which, while exclusive to its customers at first, might eventually be made available to the integrator’s rivals.

According to Leigh Richardson, Auldhouse Auckland sales manager, the offer of 25% discount on training courses will initially be restricted to companies that have a Microsoft Licensing and Software Assurance (SA) relationship with Auldhouse parent company, Gen-i.

However, she does not rule out the possibility of the same deal being extended to customers of other integrators and resellers.

“Although it is our parent company, we operate independently from Gen-i and often work with its rivals.”

The offer gives Gen-i customers who book the free training they are entitled to under Software Assurance through Auldhouse, the chance to receive 25% discount on any other courses at the training house.

Gen-i procurement manager Stuart Alexander says the purpose of the promotion is to encourage customers to make use of the training they are entitled to.

Meanwhile, Alexander is unsure whether the offer will be extended to other resellers, saying it is up to Auldhouse to decide if it wants to go that route. “We have not yet discussed what is next, but hope that they will not offer it to competitors too quickly as we would like to get some traction on it first.”

Gen-i has told customers about the deal through a mail-out and had by last week received a number of queries, but Alexander says it is too soon to predict uptake.
