Computer 2000 has added new functionality to its web-based software licensing system, License OnLine (LOL) that helps resellers to earn additional margin by alerting them to the opportunity of registering deals with vendors.
The new functionality works with Symantec’s Margin Builder and McAfee’s Deal Registration programmes. Resellers are alerted automatically so that all they then have to do is click through and register the deal – and thus earn additional rebates on sales of these vendors’ lines.
James Reed, Director of Computer 2000’s Software business unit, said: “This latest addition to LOL will help resellers to quickly and easily register their opportunities with our vendors. The extra margin they can earn from deal registrations can make all the difference to the profitability of a license sale, and also help protect the reseller’s investment in business development. In some circumstances, our resellers are unaware of any deal registration potential – LOL will make all opportunities highly visible to them in the same consistent format, regardless of the specific vendor programme.”
Computer 2000 is constantly updating and enhancing LOL. Key additions in recent months have included the addition of the Adobe Cumulative Licensing Program (CLP) scheme, making it easier for Adobe partners to build quotes and to deliver CLP licenses to customers, and the addition of the full range of Acronis’ licensing programmes to the system.
The company has also extended the Renewal Quote Generator (RQG) tool to cover Microsoft, Symantec and McAfee renewals. This easy-to-use tool helps resellers increase sales and drive new business by providing customer renewal information up to 60 days before the old license is due to expire. This gives resellers every opportunity to contact the customer and secure repeat business.
It has also worked closely with Microsoft to ensure that the full details of all licensing programmes available for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 are available on LOL from day one of the launch of these solutions.
