Vocollect Introduces Significant Enhancements to Partner Program Worldwide to Further Enhance Partner Performance
PITTSBURGH (October 18, 2012) – Vocollect, a business unit of Intermec, Inc. (NYSE:IN) and the world leader in voice solutions for mobile workers, today announced a major evolution of its global partner program. The new Vocollect PartnerNet program develops, motivates, recognizes and rewards Vocollect partners to achieve and sustain higher levels of success in selling and supporting Vocollect Voice solutions to both new and existing customers.
Vocollect’s global partner community of more than 200 supply chain market leaders has continued to experience notable gains in market share and financial rewards from its affiliation with Vocollect. In 2007 Vocollect became the first voice provider to initiate a global partner program with certification and training requirements. Due to the company’s continued geographic expansion, since that time the number of Vocollect partners has doubled, driving the opportunity to make continuing program enhancements to add further value to these relationships.
The Vocollect PartnerNet program provides all Vocollect partners with training, certification and enablement services, as well as a robust commercial framework in which to grow their business by delivering Vocollect Voice solutions to customers. The new program also brings Vocollect’s channel policies and terms into closer alignment across the Americas, EMEA, APAC and Japan regions.
For certified Vocollect partners, the new program offers additional levels of recognition and incentives based on achievement of total revenue and new business revenue targets. It also introduces new benefits and support for providers of warehouse management and ERP software. Of interest to potential and new partners, the program offers start-up incentives as they develop their competencies in selling and implementing Vocollect Voice solutions.
“As the market leader in voice-directed work solutions, Vocollect is committed to making ongoing improvements to our partner program to support and attract the very best companies to our partner network. These latest enhancements reflect the continuing innovation and leadership our partner community expects from Vocollect,” said Ron Kubera, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Vocollect.
“We are always looking for ways to provide competitive advantage to our customers, and solutions using Vocollect Voice consistently deliver this. For this reason, we have made the commitment to become one of the premier host systems providers recognized under Vocollect’s new partner program. Our PartnerNet certification will give us additional access to Vocollect training, bundled products and technology tools, which will speed up our ability to deliver voice solutions for our customers,” said Gary Morgan, Vice President - Global Technical Services, RedPrairie.
“Through our partnership with Vocollect, the Vitech team has successfully implemented numerous voice projects across the United States and Canada. We believe the mutual commitment to continuous improvement sets the standard for success with voice in the industry, which ensures that our customers receive the best possible results with their Vocollect projects. Further steps to ensure a high standard of quality within the partner network are welcome and embraced by our team,” said Keith Batt, President, Vitech Business Group.
