Quantum invests in the NZ channel

25 Jul 13

Distribution Central and Quantum have launched a Silver Partner incentive program for their A/NZ partners to support and reward Quantum’s channel community.

After announcing its exclusive partnership with DC in May this year, Quantum is focused on supporting its silver partners, and this new incentive program is designed to drive investment and enablement of Quantum’s channel.

“New Zealand is a key market for Quantum and we’re looking forward to further building our relationships with our Partners based here,” said Anne Collins, Director of Channels for APAC.

“With the launch of this new incentive programme, we will be rewarding our Partners in New Zealand while also offering full support, through in-depth sales and technical training, to ensure our Partners are well-equipped to deliver sales in Quantum’s core product range," said Collins.

The incentive recognises and rewards top performing Silver Partners for achieving sales in Quantum’s core product range including; DXi (disk backup and deduplication), Scalar (tape libraries), vmPRO (virtualisation backup), and StorNext (big data management and archiving).

Silver Partners receive a Go Pro Camera for reaching Quantum sales of $65,000 or over. The Silver Partner with the highest revenue achieved between June 1st and March 31st 2014, will receive a voucher of their choice to the value of $5,000.

DC will also offer Quantum’s NZ partners cross-sell opportunities available through complementary vendors including NetApp, with which DC also has an exclusive partnership in A/NZ.

DC will be hosting Quantum sales and enablement training at its Auckland office on 27 August 2013 from 3pm-4.30pm. Contact your local Distribution Central Account Manager for further details about the training.
