Maximizing VIP Payments

We have noticed that Cisco Partners often focus on the new VIP period, without capitalizing on the previous period’s rebates.

  • Have you audited your VIP35 booking data to ensure rebates you earned are scheduled for payment?
  • Did you receive all your VIP34 rebate payments? If not, you can still claim those not received.
  • Will shipping deadlines be met so you can maximize rebate payouts for VIP35? (first payment scheduled for October)

If you need help with auditing past VIP periods, we are here for you!

How Does Your Business Benchmark?

Cisco reminds partners they can significantly increase VIP36 payouts and profitability by migrating customers to the latest solutions and by selling into new or dormant accounts with Migration Incentive and Account Breakaway bonuses. Our analysis of VIP35 partner data subscribing to our solutions found the following interesting facts for Architecture Track rebate payout:

  1. Only 22% of partners took advantage of both the Account Breakaway & MIP Programs.
  2. The average increase in VIP payout for partners who leveraged both programs is 2.1%.
  3. The best-of-breed partner that leveraged both programs enjoyed an increase of 6.5% in VIP payout.

As the payout can be very rewarding, Cisco also encourages partners to sell Subscription counted in the Annuity Track. We found that:

  1. The average Annuity rebate payout is 15%.
  2. Best-of-breed partners are achieving between 33% and 62% Annuity payouts.
  3. Partners below 12% are slow to shift their business model towards Annuity sales.

High achieving partners use the Partner Incentive Tool (PIT) and the VIP Calculator to analyze the applicability and potential impact of leveraging programs and incentives including Migration Incentive and Account Breakaway.
