<p>“We already have a strong market for Brightpoint products so it was relatively easy for us to order additional product, sell it quickly to our customers and benefit from generous profit margins we enjoy from our relationship with Brightpoint,” said Kingsley, Managing Director of Interactive Telecoms. “The fact that we happened to win such an impressive prize has given us even more incentive to participate in future Brightpoint promotions.”</p>
<p>“The commitment of our resellers to promote Brightpoint products was evident,” said Ettore Alterisio, Brightpoint’s Manager, Product Marketing. “We received thousands of entries over the five weeks of the promotion and generated over 20% growth in sales.</p>

They also had the opportunity to win a weekly prize of either a Caltex $500 fuel voucher or a $500 Escape travel voucher.
