Brother International launches new programme
Abu Dhabi, October 7, 2012
Brother International (Gulf), a global manufacturer of laser printers, inkjet printers, label printers, has announced the UAE launch of the ‘Premium Partner Programme’.
The new programme is part of the company’s continuing efforts to give recognition and provide strong support to their partners in the region, and the UAE in particular. The announcement was made at a specially hosted dinner held recently at The Address Hotel, Downtown Dubai.
During the event, Soichi Murakami, the company’s managing director, gave a special presentation on the new partner programme and discussed Brother’s move to consolidate its market presence in the region.
The new programme is guided by a five-point objective, which includes the move to ensure the presence and supply of genuine Brother products; discourage channel partners into patronising counterfeit products and grey market; work closely with partners to achieve mutually agreed business targets; reward partners with incentives, rebates and marketing support and continue to build premium partnerships in the UAE, according to senior executives.
Under the terms of the programme, the new initiative officially started on October 1, and will conclude on March 31, 2013. The company will then conduct a review on partner performances and upgrades.
Brother has also revealed that it will be hosting a special awards dinner to recognise partners with excellent performances - revealing tier upgrades to both gold and silver partnership status in April 2013.
“We are very pleased to announce the start of our new ‘Premium Partner Programme’, an initiative that not only sets out to encourage our partners to improve on their sales performances but will also help us in our move to strenghten our ties with them,” said Murakami.
“This new programme gives us the opportunity to work closely with premium partners and move towards achieving set targets. At the same time, help them become more aware of the campaign against piracy.” – TradeArabia News Service
