Dell has extended its enterprise storage discount offer – launched in November as part of the build-up to the fifth birthday of its PartnerDirect programme – and exhorted resellers to take full advantage of its discount fund.
Dell declined to reveal how much of the $10m fund the channel has managed to burn through in the past two months, but said there was still a good amount remaining, hence the extension.
To date the UK has been the most active market in terms of partners taking advantage of the offer, a Dell spokeswoman told MicroScope, with some resellers seeing their win rates double as a result.
The scheme will now run until February and is still available to all partners in western Europe that have invested in Dell’s enterprise solutions in the past five years, and will be applied via an additional discount on all qualifying orders.
It is available across Dell’s PowerEdge, Compellent, EqualLogic, PowerVault, PowerConnect and Force10 lines.
Dell marketing director of EMEA channel marketing and programmes, Andreas Schuetze said the extension was a “sign of our continued commitment to the PartnerDirect programme.”
