Cisco announces Linksys channel program

Three-tiered program designed to educate partners and offer incentives

Networking vendor, Cisco Systems, has launched its Linksys Partner Rewards channel program in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) which aims to educate partners and reward Linksys product sales.

The three-tiered program is based on star levels one to three, each with tailored benefits. A partner commences at the first, and can increase its rating by achieving e-learning goals and revenue targets.

At launch, the benefits available to all tiers include Linksys Partner certification, access to partner promotions, e-learning access and certificates, marketing library access, and Linksys technical support access.

Two-star partners gain additional revenue target rewards, with the top (third) tier receiving an increased amount of rewards.

Cisco said that, at each quarter, it will provide new e-learning modules in the Linksys Partner Rewards Web portal about specific products of technologies in three knowledge levels.

Partners in the two and three-star levels have to complete at least one module per quarter to maintain their level and reach their revenue target.

The vendor also said that, in the near future, instructor-led learning sessions will be made available to partners through the Cisco WebEx online training platform.

Additionally, Cisco plans to let partners customise and order point-of-sale (POS) materials through an online application.

The program is now open for registration to e-tailers, resellers, and other Linksys channel partners.
