Schneider Electric has launched a double points promotion program for Australia and New Zealand channel partners who sell APC's Top UPS battery replacement service, the company reports.

Schneider, which produces the APC line, has named the rewards program APC Amplify. The program aims to encourage uptake of the company's Top UPS replacement service for Single Phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) batteries. The service covers product installation, replacement, disposal and warranty.

APC says the Amplify program offers points for APC sales, a training program participation through APC University and numerous other partnership activities, and the company is further hoping to attract customers by offering the chance to visit APC's global customer reference site in Italy.

“Our APC Amplify program is focused on how we can provide our partner members with a few extra perks, like opportunities to gain points through cash rewards. In addition, five APC members are also given the chance to win an all-expenses paid study tour to a global destination,” says Muralee Kanagaratnam, general manager, Channel - Alliances, Pacific, APC by Schneider Electric.

Partners have so far been pleased with the initiative, with Phil Jones from Focus Group commenting that the opportunity gave him the chance to build new relationships and see the latest technology.

“This trip was a highlight of the relationship that we have with APC and I would definitely recommend it to other APC partners. Not only was I able to visit the Technology Center in St Louis to see the latest developments and trends in APC solutions, but we were able to both build new and develop further existing relationships I have with the APC channel community. As a committed APC partner, this was a must for my business,” Jones says.

The program's double points offer runs until October 15 for reseller members and partners.
