New Promotion Helps Partners Take Advantage of MDF
Promotion Dates:
Following more than 20 years of overseeing trade promotion programs, Computer Market Research (CMR) has launched a web-based module for channel partners to manage the marketing funds that they receive from their vendors. As part of an Early Bird promotion, CMR is waiving the standard set-up fee associated with its new Multi-Vendor Co-op/MDF Management module. The promotion also features a reduced monthly subscription fee of $49.95 per internal user, available only to the first 50 account sign-ups. Del Heles, President of CMR, shared his excitement for the new module. “We’ve been helping vendors manage their Co-op and MDF programs for years, so the processes themselves are nothing new to us. Now that we have a module built specifically for channel partners, we wanted to launch a promotion that exposes us to new clients at the partner level,” stated Heles. “One of the primary benefits of our new solution is that users can track their marketing funds from a single web-based platform, rather than tracking them on numerous spreadsheets. I’m confident that this solution will help channel partners take full advantage of the marketing funds being made available to them, resulting in increased revenue,” concluded Heles. The decision to build this module came after industry research revealed that nearly 50% of available marketing funds go unused by channel partners. Co-op advertising dollars and market development funds (MDF) are used in an indirect sales channel, where they are made available by a vendor to help channel partners sell more products and create brand awareness. The majority of channel partners have large networks of vendors, most of which offer Co-op dollars or MDF. Having so many vendors makes it difficult for channel partners to manage their funds, resulting in large sums of money that are never used. Prior to the Multi-Vendor Co-op/MDF Management solution, CMR’s channel management modules were built specifically for vendors selling through the channel. These modules include Channel POS, Channel Inventory, Deal Registration, Co-op/MDF, Reseller Profile, and Channel Rebate Management. The standard set-up fee for these modules varies based on the amount of custom development required. As part of the Early Bird promotion, the standard set-up fee for the Multi-Vendor Co-op/MDF Management module has been waived. Standard set-up includes implementation of PartnerPortal, the web-based platform that supports the Multi-Vendor Co-op/MDF Management module. Standard set-up also includes the entry of each vendor’s set of business rules for their Co-op advertising and MDF programs. Companies eligible for the promotional offer must be channel partners that currently participate in Co-op advertising programs or MDF programs of multiple vendors.

Paragon Pure Channel Program Sparks 86% Revenue Gains and 40% Close Ratios for Resellers
Promotion Dates:
Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection, backup and disaster recovery (BDR), today announced record revenue growth for the first half of 2014, besting last year’s number by 86 percent for the same period. Due primarily to this year’s launch of the company’s new Pure Channel partner program, this growth is being driven by the significant increase in the number of new opportunities registered by partners.  In addition, the channel partners, resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) participating in Pure Channel are experiencing close ratios of well over 40 percent on the almost 500 new customer opportunities passed on to them through the program. Focused on helping resellers simplify sales cycles and achieve profitable growth, Pure Channel represents a major overhaul to the company’s previous channel program. It stands out in the market because it eliminates the need for traditional revenue commitments, certifications and contracts.  The program is built around Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR), the company’s industry-leading, image-based BDR product. PPR is optimized for small and midsize business and mid-enterprise markets and designed for physical, virtual and hybrid server environments.  "With Pure Channel, our goal is simple: to help our resellers and MSPs grow their businesses profitably. We’ve made it our commitment to do everything we can to be the most effective vendor on their line cards; the growth and opportunities we’ve delivered to date through the program this year – far outpacing the results of 2013 – are just the beginning," said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group Corp. Paragon’s “Pure Profit” Strategy Appeals to the Channel Pure Channel features a high-impact “Pure Profit” strategy grounded in what Paragon calls “POP” (Paragon Opportunity Protection), which eliminates minimum revenue and tech training requirements, guarantees 30 percent margin protection and streamlines sales cycles with the industry’s fastest online deal registration and transaction processes. In addition, unlike traditional, multi-tiered partner programs, Pure Channel allows resellers and MSPs to opt into one of only two Pure Channel partner levels: Pure Platinum or Pure Gold. Pure Channel offers great value to Paragon resellers, according to Ron Belensky, Corporate Sales Trainer and Coach, MicroAge. “Pure Channel not only sets up our sales team for success, but also offers a refreshing and streamlined alternative to traditional BDR partner programs,” said Belensky. “Paragon has gone above and beyond to support our sales efforts by being easy to do business with and demonstrating their commitment to helping us reach our goals.” Bob Ballard, President of Logisoft Computer Products, LLC, agrees. “With Paragon Software’s new Pure Channel program, it’s never been easier to register opportunities, get 30 percent protected margins and be more profitable selling data protection," said Ballard. As part of the Pure Channel program, the company offers monthly webinars to drive partner enablement, with topics ranging from product and sales training to technical tips, business building, customer experience and more. Pure Channel also includes a number of additional go-to-market enhancements including leads, spiffs and dedicated technical support managers for select partners.  Award-Winning BDR Solution In July, Paragon announced that PPR earned a 9.83 out of 10 points possible in TopTenReview’s 2014 ranking of Best Server Backup Software. In addition, PPR tied with a leading global brand to capture the top spot in the professional support category, while also earning the highest possible ratings across three other server backup software categories including recovery and restoration, management tools and resource management.
