O2 has awarded Daisy Distribution its “partner of the year” award for 2013.
The company said that is beat off distributors Avenir and Carphone Warehouse to the front line. All three are O2 Centre of Excellence distributors.
Dave McGinn, MD at Daisy, said it won the award because of its low churn and rise in customer satisfaction.
“Although we continually perform strongly on computer acquisition, our goal for 2013 was to further improve our retention performance in order to strengthen our position as O2’s leading distribution partner,” he said.
O2’s Angie Simpson, said that the two companies had an “excellent working relationship in 2013 and our strategic alignment has helped forge a closer working relationship over the last 12 months”.
Daisy Distribution is teaming up with BlackBerry by offering a partner incentive.
Daisy’s registered partners need to accumulate points – earned by selling Blackberry10s or BES10.2 CALs.
If partners tip up at its Evolving Solutions event, they’ll get a £50 voucher which can be used to close the fist sale.
BB10s are worth two points while BES10.2 CALs notch up five. When they get to a minimum of 50 points, the partners can cash in. And if they clock up more than 300 points during the 1st of February to the 3rd of April, they can win up to £1,000.
Evolving Solutions kicks off at Whittlebury Hall & Spa on the 23rd of January.
Daisy Distribution has named the two winners of a spiff it was offering on Blackberry products.
Dave Webster and Stuart Mico, who together own Midland Communications, will fly out to the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix, and win five star accommodation for four nights, three day hospitality race access as well as Golden Circle entry to the post race concert. They also get premium passes to the theme parks on Yas Island.
Daisy partners also had to complete the Blackberry 10 e-learning modules.
Julien Parven, MD at Daisy said: “The promotion proved to be a huge success, being open to our existing partners, those acquired through the recent MoCo Communications acquisition and other independent channel partners.”
Daisy Distribution said that it has a promotion that will let some of its resellers enjoying a luxury ski trip to the Alps in March next year.
The resellers have to collect as many point as possible by buying any SIM free Nokia and also promoting fixed line, new and resigned contracts with O2.
The promotion will take place between the 21st October and the 24th of January 2014.
After three months, the “partner points” will be consolidated and divided into three leagues. The league will then be given a percentage of the overall incentive places and winning partners will be drawn at random from each league.
There are 10 prizes to win, getting a three night say at a top Alps resort with fully paid transport, equipment costs and entertainment thrown in.
