As part of SMB Cloud Club programme, Microsoft and Mindware along with other distributors, honoured top performing Gulf partners with a trip to Thailand.
Mario Gay, GM, Mindware, said, “This has been a great initiative from Mindware and Microsoft teams to bring together the highest achieving cloud club partners across the region. The programme has been created to keep the momentum of the Cloud Club, increase breadth partners and at the same time maintain a loyalty with our transaction partners across the region.”
Fadi Farhat, Gulf Distribution Manager, Microsoft Gulf, added, “Microsoft Cloud Club promotion is primarily focused on cloud product offerings such as Office 365 and Azure. It is a well thought out promotion created to entice all the stakeholders of the business, be it a partner distributor, partner reseller, partner resellers’ sales team. The idea was to encapsulate all the benefits such as incentives, rewards, trips, training, and migration services, all under one promotion. This way the promotion offers benefits to all and can help in influencing the decisions.
The partners had an opportunity to participate in various teambuilding events. The highest achieving partners in Q2 FY15 were also awarded at a gala ceremony.
“As a result of Q2 FY15 performance, Microsoft distributors have rewarded the top cloud partners for achieving the highest Office 365 and Azure growth in Gulf. It was a super exciting opportunity to have the cloud partners and distributors community in Thailand, rewarding them for their best efforts in growing the cloud business, and for providing the best support for their customers,” added Farhat.
Having had a successful event, the vendor plans to take the next trip to South Africa, where Q3 FY15 Cloud Club partners will be recognised.
