Dell Technologies announced today the official launch of RISE for Authorized Partners in the MERAT region, merging its existing independent country offerings for Authorized partners into a single unified all-MERAT offering. As part of the Dell Technologies Partner Program, RISE provides partners in the MERAT region with greater profit potential, enabling them to earn more when they sell more, from distributor’s stocks across the Dell Technologies client and server portfolios. The evolved offering rewards partners as they grow their business with Dell Technologies and work towards metal tier requirements and even more financial benefits.
Ashraf Hamid, Director of Distribution - MERAT, Dell Technologies‘In 2020 we have seen growth in every quarter in the number of resellers selling Dell Technologies products and solutions, but now we want to capture and accelerate this momentum. With our industry leading portfolio and launch of RISE, we’re providing a more formal engagement path for our Authorized Partners in MERAT, to become part of the Dell Technologies partner community and grow their business even further. Through RISE, partners will have increased opportunity and profit potential to support their growth with us and rise through the Dell Technologies Program levels.’
As a first of its kind offering, the new RISE partner levels, Ignite, Boost, Advanced and Elite have been developed to elevate Dell Technologies small and medium business (SMB) partners and establish a path to levelling up their Dell Technologies business from Authorized to Metal partner tiers.
RISE offers a progressive reward scale giving partners attractive reasons to grow their Dell Technologies business. Partners are rewarded on a US dollars per-box basis based on revenue made through a Dell Technologies Authorized Distributor. Rewards can be earned on a range of commercial client products including Displays, Latitude Notebooks, Optiplex and Precision Workstations, XPS Desktops, After or Near Point of Sale Services (APOS/NPOS), PowerEdge Servers, Microsoft Reseller Option Kit (ROK) and more.
Partners will be able to accumulate dollars every quarter. Rewards can be redeemed at quarter-end and paid out as e-vouchers for Ignite and Boost partners or passed through as credit notes at the distributor for Advanced and Elite partners. Rewards can be used against partners’ next purchase of Dell Technologies products at their chosen Dell Technologies Authorized Distributor.
