Lenovo goes wild, offers up no meer incentive

14 Jul 16

Lenovo has gone wild with its latest Partner Advantage Program, offering up incentives including an ultimate overnight safari and a Go Wild themed annual incentive trip.

The company is playing its cards close to its chest on specifics of the year end incentive prize trip, No Meer Incentive, but says it will include some amazing experiences that money can’t buy.

However, the mid-year motivator – Seal the Deal – will see the top five DCG and top five PCG performing acquisition sales representatives enjoying an overnight safari at the Jamal Wildlife Lodge National Zoo and Aquarium in Canberra.

Margrith Appleby, Lenovo ANZ channel director the Lenovo Partner Advantage (LPA) program provides product-specific training and streamlined information that channel partners need in order to be successful.

“Packaging this important program up as a themed experience adds a layer of fun to the channel and ultimately deepens our engagement with partners,” Appleby says.

The competition will also see quarterly winners – four from Australia and four from New Zealand per quarter, spread across the PCG and DCG product families – receiving $500 in LPA Bonus points on the LPA Visa card.

Partners accumulate LPA dollars through selling eligible Lenovo products, with the dollars contributing to the partner's leaderboard points. Finishing on top of the leaderboard of nominated products in either the Diamond/Gold or Silver/Registered partner categories sees a partner taking home the $500 on their LPA Visa card.
