With the launch of its Global Hospitality Partner Program, NEC is driving its accredited Business Partners towards further revenues.
Kees van Donk, Director Hospitality at NEC Enterprise Solutions, explains: “As a subset of NEC Smart Hospitality, this program aims at mutual growth and profitability in the important Hospitality sector. Through this program we recognize and support Business Partners that invest in and promote the value of our integrated solutions, enabling them to go-to-market more successfully and help them to create new, profitable opportunities”.
The program addresses and supports the 4 main aspects of Sell, Learn, Support and Promote and includes marketing support in raising awareness, developing leads, training staff and supporting implementations.
The first 2 partners which have the honor to become Executive Hospitality Partner within NEC’s Smart Hospitality framework, are Advance in Russia and Teksam in Turkey.
As Anton Dunaev, Head of Telecommunications & IT of Advance, adds ”Thanks to the continued focus and support of NEC on the international hospitality industry, we have been able to establish Advance as the leading Hospitality Communications System Integrator in Russia. We are thrilled to have been selected to join this program. This will further strengthen our activities and our continued success in working with leading national and international hotel operators like Hilton and Marriott.
Cem Lokcu, Managing Director of Teksam, commented “I fully underline the words of Mr. Dunaev. Indeed our partnership with NEC in Hospitality has been extremely successful. Teksam now becoming one of the first NEC Executive Hospitality Partners, makes us extremely proud – yet it is only the beginning. The partnership between Teksam and NEC has led to successful installations within leading international brands such as Mandarin Oriental, Sheraton and St. Regis. We are looking forward to an aggressive growth for Teksam and NEC in the booming Turkish Hospitality market”.
“Important to emphasize is that both the NEC Smart Hospitality framework – as well as the NEC Executive Hospitality Partner Program are truly Global initiatives. As partners enhance their certification status in our Executive Partner Program, further benefits become available. And the higher the achievements, the greater the rewards,” concludes van Donk.
