“We truly see the value and importance that our Channel Partners bring to APC. Without their support, APC would not be able to supply end-users with the quality products and services that they have come to known and appreciate for decades,” said Paul Tyrer, vice president, UK, Ireland and Nordics, APC by Schneider Electric. “With the new program, we are not only able to provide partners with great rewards, but we offer them the tools and resources they need to succeed in the marketplace.”
The APC Rewards Programme is open to IT Resellers and Partners. Users can join by visiting the APC Rewards Program online and registering as an individual or signing up as a team to increase points. Once an approved member of the program, partners can start planning their sales and training activities to earn the points they need for a desired prize. As partners grow their business, they will earn points for each eligible sale. Members can earn APC Rewards Points by selling: data centre, server room and wiring closet equipment, including uninterruptible power supplies and power distribution units, racks and accessories, cooling, security and environmental monitoring, surge protection and power conditioning and management solutions* Additional points are awarded for those who build their competency through APC’s world-class partner training programme, which offers online webinars and instructor-led training courses.
Once partners begin accumulating rewards points, they can start redeeming right away. With an easy-to-use, real-time online account, users can log-in, check their balance and browse through rewards and select prizes. The points for the prize will be deducted from the partner’s account and the remaining balance will be displayed. Throughout the year, partners can partake in promotions that double and triple points on select SKUs, allowing partner to redeem more exciting prizes. Now through March 31st 2011, any partner who enrols in the APC Rewards Programme receives a 1000 points bonus.
The APC Rewards Programme will be offered worldwide and is currently available in select countries. For availability and to learn more about APC’s Rewards Program visit www.apcrewards.com or call APC on 0800 2799254.
