Ingram Micro NZ resellers to shred the slopes in Canada in new HP promo

04 Sep 17

Ingram Micro New Zealand is offering its top HP commercial PC resellers a chance to shred the slopes in Canada in the distributor’s latest promotion.

The competition will see eight lucky resellers winging their way to British Columbia for a week at Whistler. And it won’t just be skiing on offer. Jamie Hall, Ingram Micro New Zealand’s HP business development manager, is promising resellers an ‘awesome adventure’.

“We’ll be doing skiing and snowboarding, snowmobiling, bob sledding and zip-lining,” says Hall. “It’s going to be some pretty cool stuff. (Pun intended.)”

Six of the slots will go to resellers who most overachieve their targets, with two wildcards also available to the top purchasers of HP workstations/mobile workstations and HP X2 1012, X360 1030, X2 612 and X3.

Resellers have until the end of November to rack up as many sales as possible to get themselves in the running, with the winners heading to Whistler next February.

The promotion follows on from Ingram Micro New Zealand’s hugely successful Bring it Home Bermuda campaign which saw resellers heading to Bermuda to experience the America’s Cup action from the Team New Zealand base and on the water.

Hall says appetite for HP products is running high locally, which is enabling Ingram Micro and HP to plan these promotions to continue to drive momentum.

“HP has been dominating in general across competing brands and that’s being driven by the range of exciting products it has,” he says.

Hall says the modern, elegant look and feel of the latest HP devices is winning fans and driving the market.

“A few years ago devices were pretty plain, rectangular and a bit boring in the business space, but HP has really brought across the consumer look and feel while still creating a business device.”

“These bigger events are an awesome opportunity for resellers to pick someone within their organisation who has done an amazing job, or the owner, to go away on a fabulous overseas adventure.

“It’s not just a holiday, they’re action packed experiences. We set up the whole itinerary and the restaurants are handpicked so we’re taking them to great places. It’s an overall experience that a lot of other brands can’t offer, based on the share market we’re lucky to have with HP.”

Ingram Micro is keen to help resellers in their quest for the ski runs, with Hall noting that the winning resellers tend to be those who engage best with the distributor and HP.

“The accounts that engage generally have the most success. They’re the ones who utilise us to showcase the latest HP devices to their customers. In turn, they're selling more and getting some exciting rewards."

“They’re using distribution as a valued resource,” says Hall.

Ingram Micro New Zealand has a dedicated HP team to answer queries and help with any solutions.
