This month NVIDIA is piloting a brand new incentive scheme for the channel which credits resellers in the UK with cash rewards based on their purchase of NVIDIA products.
Participants will receive a PartnerForce Rewards Mastercard debit card which can be used to purchase sales incentives, marketing materials, advertising, hotel meeting rooms, product samples in short, everything needed to drive their sales of NVIDIA GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs) and media communications processors (MCPs).
PartnerForce Rewards participants will accumulate funds according based on their purchases and theres no requirement for time consuming paperwork or invoice submissions. By agreeing to allow NVIDIA to collect sales out data from participating distributors and board partners, rewards will be calculated monthly based on purchases recorded and credited to the PartnerForce Rewards debit card within three weeks of month end.
NVIDIA Channel Marketing Manager EMEA and India Chris Ayres said: The goal of this programme is very simple to reward resellers in a way which gives them maximum benefit for minimum administrative effort. There are no points or miles to accumulate, just cash which goes to developing their business. We believe PartnerForce Rewards adds a new dimension to the existing PartnerForce programme, helping our channel partners deliver the best possible purchasing experience to their customers and sell more NVIDIA products.
"I think its an excellent and innovative idea that lets NVIDIA give something back to its customers whilst creating strong loyalty, said Vladimir Kuznetsov of UK reseller Dino PC. The best part is that the scheme is very simple to use, with no paperwork or receipts required and its a win-win situation."
To participate in the pilot scheme, resellers are required to:
Allow NVIDIA to collect sales out data from participating distributors and board partners. This information will only be used for calculating PartnerForce Rewards payments
