RSA Security, the expert in protecting online identities and digital assets, is today announcing its latest channel incentive program – RSA SecurWorld Rewards. The program works in a similar way to a regular debit card, with individual members of RSA SecurWorld Partner sales teams able to apply for an RSA SecurWorld Visa incentive card. The card will then be credited by RSA Security when qualifying deals are closed by the account holding partner sales executive.
Intended to encourage individual members of RSA SecurWorld Partner sales teams to drive new business and promote key RSA Security solutions, RSA SecurWorld Rewards will be available in Pounds Sterling, Euros and US
dollar currencies and will be launched in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, North America and Canada in June 2006. The scheme will be rolled out to the rest of Europe during the coming months. The rewards cards can be used in any establishment accepting Visa cards.
The amount credited to the card will depend on the RSA Security solution sold, not the size of the deal, and will range from $100 to $125 per deal closed. As a launch promotion, the first 100 registrants will receive an introductory bonus of $50 pre-assigned to their card. RSA Security anticipates that 60 – 80 per cent of eligible transactions will be claimed as part of RSA SecurWorld Rewards.
Jo Pettifer, International Channel Program Manager at RSA Security commented: “Channel partners have a choice about which vendors they want to work with, and RSA Security recognises the need to continually innovate and motivate partners through the channel program in order to attract and retain partners of the highest calibre who will help to drive its business forward. I believe RSA SecurWorld Rewards will help us to continue to do just that. We also wanted to make sure that as many of our partners as possible have the opportunity to benefit from RSA SecurWorld Rewards, which has led us to be one of the first vendors to launch an incentive card-based rewards scheme on this scale.”
RSA SecurWorld Rewards is available to all individuals within Solutions and Access partners who have completed sales authorisation training. In order to apply for an incentive card, permission is needed from the partner management team before individual sales representatives can apply. Participants will then receive their individual RSA SecurWorld Rewards card once the first valid claim is made through the RSA SecurWorld Partner Portal.
