Quick Rewards represents an unprecedented move for a top 10 AV vendor, according to Farokh Karani, Director – North America, Sales and Channels, Quick Heal Technologies.
Boston (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Quick Heal Technologies, a leading provider of IT security solutions, today announced Quick Rewards, a new loyalty program for qualified North American reseller partners. Anchored by reseller referrals, the program is designed to provide unlimited financial benefits to active channel partners, with no limit on the amount of rewards cash that may be earned. In addition, Quick Heal also announced the appointment of two key executives, each offering decades of network security experience, to drive expansion of the company’s North American channel program.
Launched on the heels of the company’s introduction of the SEQRITE product line in the U.S. and Canada, with all sales handled exclusively through the IT channel, Quick Rewards represents an unprecedented move for a top 10 AV vendor, according to Farokh Karani, Director – North America, Sales and Channels, Quick Heal Technologies.
“It’s common practice for reseller executives to network with one another and talk business – from technology trends and profit margins, to new vendors and products,” said Karani. “As a newcomer to the North American IT security space, we want those conversations to be about the rewards of doing business with Quick Heal. With Quick Rewards, we’re sending a strong signal to the channel that we want to grow together with them, and that our success is tied directly to theirs.”
Quick Rewards allows authorized channel partners to receive rewards credits representing up to six percent of a referred partner’s first-year Quick Heal SEQRITE product line sales, and four percent of the second year’s sales. The program works like this:
- Authorized reseller partners officially refer fellow VAR/resellers to Quick Heal using an online form and receive an acknowledgement back from Quick Heal.
- Quick Heal tallies up that partner's year one sales and, at the end of the first quarter of the new year, provides the referring partner a Quick Heal "Reward" credit good towards future purchase orders submitted to Quick Heal for six percent of that amount.
- Next, Quick Heal tallies up the new reseller's second-year sales, and at the end of the first quarter of the new year, provides the referring partner a Quick Heal "Reward" credit good towards future purchase orders submitted to Quick Heal for four percent of that amount.
- There are no limits to the number of referrals that an active reseller can send in, and no limits to the reward dollars that they can earn.
In addition to the loyalty program, authorized Quick Heal partners earn profit margins of up to 50 percent and gain immediate access to high-value rebates, generous incentives, SPIFFs, deal registration and deal protection through the company’s North American Channel Partner Program. Both programs support Quick Heal’s SEQRITE product line, which targets organizations with five to 5,000 users and place a strong focus on the state, local government and education markets.
