"With this new program available to our UC partners, they will be able to leverage the Yamaha name to differentiate their business from the competition while tapping into the best tools and resources that will help build their knowledge, grow their business quickly, and fast-track their ROI in the growing UC field."
The Yamaha UC Global Partner Program recognizes three partnerships: Basic, Emerging, and Prime, providing partners with additional benefits and incentives at each level. Basic level provides dealer registration, demo program, special discounts, welcome kit, product training, and post-sales technical support. Partners achieving Emerging and Prime levels are recognized as "Club Partners," and given volume incentive rebates and additional marketing support to increase customer base and sales opportunities including market development funds. With these funds, partners can grow their sales presence and use funds for online and print advertising; social opportunities such as tradeshows, lunch and learns, roundtables, and other events; whitepapers or other content assets; webinars; or microsite developments.
