Intel this week hosts almost 350 of its members of the Intel® Technology Provider program in Asia Pacific and Japan at its annual Intel® Solutions Summit held in Macau. The summit provides Intel’s partner community with hands on experience on innovative products, effective sales tools, enablement programs and match-making opportunities to prepare them for capturing the business opportunities in the business and consumer market segments across the region.
Intel® Technology Provider is a global partner program designed for businesses that resell and recommend Intel technology. The program has continued to evolve to help partners increase their bottom line, be the trusted expert on how to build and sell solutions and earn rewards. The partner program introduced new additional Specialty Benefits in key market segments this year for Retailers, Education, IoT Retail Solutions, Mobile Specialty Retailers and Small and Medium Business focused solution providers. Each specialty offers a host of tailored benefits designed to help partners lead and have a competitive edge.
“Intel Technology Provider is a proven resource for partners who engage and participate actively,” Maurits Tichelman said, Vice President, Intel Sales and Marketing Group and General Manager of Sales, Direct and Channel Sales Group. “Intel has evolved the program to help our partners succeed and win more business in 2015, and on a redesigned website platform that is responsive and easy to access from your mobile, tablet or PC, thus providing members more relevant content, sales opportunities and business rewards than ever before. There is not a better time to partner with Intel.”
The redesigned Intel Technology Provider web site allows members to access their accounts and redeem points on the go, with user interface optimized for the different screen sizes of the client devices. It hosts advanced sales and training tools online to help members propel their businesses forward. In addition, analytics and insights are available to facilitate business decisions, with relevant communications for each partner for optimal user experience.
