Tech Data is working with ASUS to persuade more systems builders and integrators to join the vendor’s partner programme, so they can take full advantage of the benefits available to them when they purchase the company’s motherboards.
The ASUS Valued Partner programme provides resources and support to help businesses drive sales in today’s competitive market. There are no specific sign-up requirements and in return for registering as a partner, ASUS provides access to three-years Advance Replacement Service on its standard motherboards, the potential to accrue Intel Technology Provider (ITP) programme points on some purchases, and access to evaluation and demo units, marketing assets and events.
As well as ASUS Registered, there are Elite, Gold Elite, and Diamond Elite partnership levels, for which the qualification is assessed on overall purchases of qualified products in a rolling three-month period, with additional incentives available at each level. There are frequent promotions and offers for Registered AVPs as well.
According to Paul Jacobs, PC Components and Accessories Business Unit Manager at Tech Data, there are a lot of benefits to joining the scheme. “The AVP programme is a win-win for systems builders, integrators and retailers. It costs nothing to sign-up and the potential benefits are significant. Both ASUS and Tech Data are keen for more customers to register as it means they will get more benefits for every ASUS motherboard they sell.”
