Netformx wins 2018 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for Partner Incentive Tool

  • Netformx Partner Incentive Tool recognized for exceptional innovation
  • Grows Cisco Partner deal profitability by increasing upfront vendor discounts
  • Delivers analytical insights to increase gross margins

SAN JOSE, CA—October 2, 2018Netformx®, the leader in opportunity-to-quote solutions specifically designed for IT solution and service providers, vendors, and distributors, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded the Netformx Partner Incentive Tool a 2018 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award. The award honors exceptional products and services that were brought to market in the last twelve months.

Partner Incentive Tool, the newest addition to the Netformx suite of applications, leverages the concept, Expose, Educate and Guide (EEG). The easy-to-use application exposes Cisco promotion and incentive benefits that are often buried inside CCW Estimates. The interface enables the user to educate themselves on the applicability of each identified promotion or incentive ‘slice’ via click-throughs. Direct links to the Cisco website supporting material pages permits the user to review the exact rules of engagement. Primed with this knowledge, Cisco Partners can guide the end customer conversation more effectively to deliver better solutions which often result in higher profitability for the solution provider through lowered product costs. The tool powers market and competitive intelligence by highlighting the relative strength (or weakness) of pre-existing Cisco contract price agreements for end customers compared against the full set of available promotions and incentives. The tool also provides insight on suggested product replacements and helps guide customer conversations to align to recommended Cisco best business practices all while increasing Partner profitability.

All Cisco Channel Partners in the US and Latin America can now experience full access to the Netformx Partner Incentive Tool.

The Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award honors the best, the most innovative and groundbreaking products and services, available in the past 12 months, which deserve industry-wide recognition.
