Why should you enter the NetApp EMEA Partner Performance and Innovation Awards 2014 program? Because we believe that best practices, increased turnover, customer support and satisfaction, business excellence, improved productivity, and individual career success all deserve to be recognised. In turn, you can use the recognition and publicity generated to reinforce your message to potential and existing customers.

With this awards program, partner efforts are recognised and rewarded in a consistent way. Here’s how the program works.

Your Award
The winner of each category receives US$15,000 for the company’s market development fund (investments must follow the MDF rules). That means you can promote your business as it reaches new heights.

One winner will also help NetApp decide where a US$10,000 donation to the Red Cross will go (to your local chapter, or to another chapter where you feel the need is greatest) and will be involved in relaying the good news to that Red Cross chapter.

The winning companies will be promoted locally and by NetApp EMEA.

Like our award winners, Team NetApp-Endura, our sponsored cycling team, has shown performance excellence, continuous growth and a dedication to achieving their goal. They have risen through the ranks of professional cycling to achieve a place in the Tour de France 2014. To recognize this achievement and the achievements of our partners, NetApp will award each winning company a VIP ticket to join us for the final stage of the Tour de France in Paris.

Publicity You Can Count On
A press kit awaits winners at the awards ceremony. Content includes:

  • Press release with photos of speakers spokespeople
  • Prepared quotes from EMEA management and corporate, photos
  • Social media coverage – links to NetApp blogs and social media
  • PR coverage for the Red Cross donation

What Else You’ll Win
Achievement breeds more achievement. Being an award winner will help you:

  • Win new business. An independent endorsement showing that you or your company delivers commercially effective solutions will help you attract new customers.
  • Improve business relationships. An award will enhance your reputation within a wider audience of current and potential customers, suppliers, partners, and the business community.

  • Make your company a better place to work. Success is infectious. An award can increase productivity, boost motivation and confidence, help you attract the best talent and even transform careers. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to transform your business.
