Distributor offers up massive reward for Sun volume resellers as part of a drive to boost sales and recruitment


Who wants to be a millionaire?

ASX-listed distributor, itX (ASX: ITX), is offering a $1 million prize to its Sun volume resellers to boost sales and drive recruitment.

“We wanted to make a lot of noise in the channel about Sun and launch a promotion that hasn’t been seen before,” itX marketing manager, Paul Sadler, said. “So we are offering two individuals the opportunity to win $1 million cash.”

The promotion is funded and backed by Sun with the vendor and itX footing the fringe benefits tax bill. The promotion covers the vendor’s x86, entry to mid-level servers, and storage products. Resellers must purchase $5000 or more of qualifying products, register the sale online and they will go into a draw. The promotion runs until the end of July.

As part of two prize draws in June and early August, itX will give away $5000 cash – $2500 to the winner (along with the chance to win $1 million), $1500 to second place, and $1000 to third place. Towards the end of August, the $1 million will then be placed in one of 100 boxes as part of a Sun sales launch. The two winners will then be invited to try their luck to select the right box with both given a chance to win the money.

The news comes on the back of the distributor's announcement it will also run a Xen Master certification program for Citrix partners.
