INTRODUCING THE NEW NETGEAR® SOLUTION PARTNER PROGRAM: Making it easier and more profitable for resellers to grow their businesses
Here at NETGEAR Commercial Business Unit (CBU) our primary channel focus is driving solution-based integration of our commercial Switching, Storage and Wireless portfolio. In order to support this drive we have redesigned our Channel Partner Program to grow partner profitability, increase reseller support, and provide improved sales and marketing tools. The new program, now called the NETGEAR Solution Partner (NSP) Program , is designed to ensure you are competing effectively in the Channel on project deals and rewarding you for the work that it takes to go out and win NETGEAR opportunities with business-class product lines, which include market-leading ProSAFE® switching and wireless products, Business Central™ Wireless Management and ReadyNAS® and ReadyDATA® storage solutions.
The newly branded NETGEAR Solution Partner Program improves breadth of program offerings and services offered to IT integrators and resellers:
“As our new partner program becomes available around the world, we wanted to ensure a globally managed program consistent across regions that makes it easy for VARs to work with us and profitably grow their own businesses,” said Renee Meisenbach, the director of worldwide channel marketing for NETGEAR Commercial Business Unit. “It’s the right time to redesign our program to emphasize not only the price/performance value of NETGEAR products and our industry-leading warranty program, but to strengthen margins and simplify business processes to lower the costs of doing business with NETGEAR. We recognize that a successful channel program is not based on technology alone, but on a shared effort to drive business opportunities and revenue.”
