Daisy aiming for 50pc uplift in BlackBerry 10 sales with incentive


Distributor will unveil details of a new points-based BlackBerry 10 promotion for dealers at its Evolving Solutions event on Thursday that could see them each earn up to £1,000 

Daisy Distribution is looking for a 50 per cent uplift in sales of BlackBerry 10 smartphone and BES10 licences when it launches a new incentive in partnership with the manufacturer. The promotion will begin on February 1 and run until April 30.

Details of the incentive will be revealed to dealers at ‘Evolving Solutions’ on Thursday, an event hosted by Daisy and BlackBerry.

Dealers must accumulate points, which can be earned through the sale of a BlackBerry 10 smartphone or BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10.2 (BES10.2). They will receive two points for every BlackBerry 10 device sold, while every BES10.2 sale will generate five points. When dealers reach the minimum 50 point target, cash rewards will be given out. They can receive up to £1,000 should they accumulate more than 300 points during the period.

Dealers attending Evolving Solutions will also be given a £50 voucher for T-Support, which can be used towards closing their first sale. T-Support is BlackBerry’s enterprise technical support service for BES10, with annual pricing starting from £309.

Daisy is hosting Evolving Solutions in partnership with BlackBerry at the Whittlebury Hall & Spa in Northamptonshire to show dealers the latest solutions and services offered by the companies.

It will enable dealers to learn about how to generate new revenue streams through these new solutions and services. A series of workshops will be run, educating dealers on customer engagement, enterprise mobility management, cloud services, technical end-to-end support and devices.

Daisy Distribution marketing director Julien Parven (pictured) said: “The whole concept is designed to increase the sales of BlackBerry10 devices, promoting the new BES10.2 cloud service providing customers with a multi-platform MDM solution, while also raising awareness and sales of BlackBerry T-Support. We are looking to see a 50 per cent uplift in sales during the incentive period.”
