Last chance for WatchGuard resellers to rev

06 Sep 11

New Zealand resellers have only a few short weeks to win a slot in WatchGuard Technologies Elite 2011 sales incentive, which will see winners jumping behind the wheel of a race-prepared V8 Holden Commodore on the Gold Coast.



Resellers entering the competition are measured on sales growth and performance from 01 July to 30 September, with resort and drive packages awarded to different categories of winners within the company’s Northern Region, which includes New Zealand along with ACT, NSW, Northern Territory and Queensland, and the Southern Region, covering the rest of Australia.



WatchGuard’s Elite 2011 Conference will be held at the Marriott Resort and Spa in Surfers Paradise from 01-04 December. Event seminar sessions include break-outs on WatchGuard’s product and technology roadmap, support and customer care programmes and 2012 sales and marketing opportunities.



Scott Robertson, WatchGuard Technologies vice president Asia Pacific, channels and alliances, says the company recognises ‘the dedication and hard work [partners] put in to helping us achieve our success’ and wants to reward them with ‘a really memorable experience’.
