West Region Partners truly Discovered the Real Value of Open Value and cashed out! Next week we will announce the winners of the sales contest which lasted from March 15 to May 15! We had active participation from partners across the West Region with phenomenal results!

By selling Open Value or Open Value Subscription, partners created a consistent revenue stream for their business for the coming years. And in doing so, partners provided small and medium customers with:

  • Simplified license tracking
  • More controlled upgrade cycle
  • Improved management of software costs

Software Assurance benefits:

  • Spread payments annually
  • Tools and training

Selling Open Value also helps you to:

  • Build and maintain stronger customer relationships
  • Drive additional services and revenue

The West Region brought to participating partners an exclusive offer to cash out on. For each qualifying sale of Open Value (OV) or Open Value Subscription (OVS) over $1,000, first time resellers will receive a $100 gift card guaranteed (up to 4 per company)!

Partners that were already ahead of the game, had nothing to worry about. All resellers with qualifying transaction of $1,000 or more in OV or OVS are entered into a chance to win one of three prizes valued at $250 each.

Furthermore, when partners sold more OV or OVS, so did the possibilities to earn more cash with our two grand prizes!
